''Hell On Heels'' Head-to-Head with Miranda Lambert... Shelly Rann says, ''I'm All Over That'' By: MMD Press Releases

Posted on July 11, 2011 at 09:01 AM EDT Shelly Rann to release new single "I'm All Over That" in response to competing "Hell On Heels" single from Miranda Lambert's Pistol Annies. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (MMD Newswire) July 11, 2011 -- The recent release of "Hell On Heels" from Miranda Lambert's new group Pistol Annies came as quite a surprise to Nashville singer/songwriter Shelly Rann. Rann released her first single, also titled "Hell On Heels" to Country Radio in April and was seeing promising results with her debut at # 76 on the Mediabase Country Building Chart in early May.

The recent release of a single of the same name "Hell On Heels" from Lambert's Pistol Annies left Rann with little choice but to release a second single from her debut album "Afterwords". Based on very positive reviews from radio program directors and overall reviews of her CD, the natural choice and clear winner became "I'm All Over That".

Rann co-wrote her version of "Hell On Heels" with Larry Bastian, best known for writing the Garth Brooks hits "Unanswered Prayers" and "Rodeo" and Rann also co-wrote, "I'm All Over That", with Henry Paul and Dave Robbins of the multi-platinum country group BlackHawk. Henry Paul co-produced the debut album titled "Afterwords" which was released on the Nashville label, Mirror Lake Records.

The latest single from Rann will be released to country radio in late July in conjunction with a new music video, shot on the amazingly impressive brand new digital cinema camera from RED called the "Epic". The "Epic" is the highly acclaimed camera being used to shoot the major motion pictures and visual masterpiece films "The Hobbit" and "Avatar 2".

Look for the music video to be released to CMT and GAC in late July, however, fans in Baltimore, MD will have an opportunity to catch a sneak peek of the video which is set to air at Camden Yards on the Orioles' HD Jumbotron on Sunday July 17th when Shelly Rann stops by to sing the National Anthem for the Orioles vs. Indians at 1:35pm EST. Fans at the game will be able to meet and greet for autographs and photos with Shelly and also take home a download card with 3 Free Songs including "Hell On Heels", "I'm All Over That", and "Unloved" courtesy of Shelly Rann and The Baltimore Orioles.

Shelly Rann's debut CD "Afterwords" is available at Amazon.com and her first single titled "Hell On Heels" as well as the brand new single titled "I'm All Over That" are available for download at Amazon.com and on iTunes.

𝄐Power source CD review Shelly Rann   Afterwords The highly anticipated album from Shelly Rann is finally here! Produced by Henry Paul (Blackhawk), Dale Oliver (Bucky Covington) and Michael Bush, this album is great collection of songs about love and loss. Rann has an absolutely beautiful voice. Her expressive vocal immediately draws you into the song, especially as heard in the title track, “Afterwords.” Other stand out songs on this album are “I’m All Over That,” “Goodbye Takes Forever,” and “Unloved.” Rann has also collaborated with some of the finest songwriters in Nashville for this album, including Kent Blazy, Cory Batten and Gary Burr. “8 X 10” is another song on this album that should garner attention. Expect to hear great things from Shelly Rann! The Lexington, Kentucky, native seems to deserve attention from radio and other Country music gate keepers, as she is one the best up-and-comers out there. The Country music scene could use some more females too!
