An award-winning, singer/songwriter, author, and activist, Chely Wright's heroic personal and creative journey has inspired millions while inalterably changing the world of country music and beyond. Now, after more than five years away from the spotlight, Wright has announced the MRI/Sony release of her long anticipated new album I Am The Rain. Wright's eighth studio album, I Am The Rain stands as a major milestone for Wright, truly affirming her as an incandescent, once-in-a-lifetime artist. I Am The Rain - which follows 2010's much-admired Lifted Off The Ground - sees Wright continuing to develop her overall sonic palette. Moreover, deeply personal songs like "Inside," "Where Will You Be," and "Pain," (featuring backing vocals from the one and only Emmylou Harris) reveal a striking new freedom as a songwriter, their heart-hitting melodies more than a match for her frank and incisive lyricism. The album also showcases a number of songs co-written with Henry, among them the provocative "Holy War" and "See Me Home." Other unassailable highlights include "At The Heart Of Me" (co-written with Henry and longtime friend Rodney Crowell), as well as a powerful rendition of Bob Dylan's timeless "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" featuring backing vocals from acclaimed indie-folk duo The Milk Carton Kids. As unflinching and adventurous as it is heartfelt and inspirational, I Am the Rain begins the next remarkable chapter in Chely Wright's increasingly historic body of work.
