article imageInterview with Michelle Wright: 'Strong' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jun 1, 2013 in Entertainment
On June 1, acclaimed Canadian country sensation Michelle Wright chatted via telephone with Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos.
Particularly impressive about Michelle is that in 2011, she was inducted into the coveted Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, becoming one of its youngest members.
Michelle discussed her new radio single “Strong” and her upcoming studio album, which is her first CD of original material in seven years. “We are really excited about the new single ‘Strong.’ We are happy to have it out there and I feel that I am a voice for empowering women. It talks about the joys and the challenges of life. I have a desire and a responsibility to write songs about that.”
She continued, “It’s always great to have new music out. We have a wonderful video that will be out soon and we are reviewing final edits today. I feel so awesome about this song and I am so proud to be a writer on it. I cannot wait to share it with people,” Michelle shared. “I did a couple of other projects in between and it amazes me how time goes by so quickly. It feels like everything happens as it should because I co-wrote ten out of the eleven songs on the record and that was the goal. I am really happy to say that I am a co-writer on those songs and that is really rewarding.”
Michelle revealed that she is looking forward to Fan Fair and CMA Music Festival next week. “My major focus at the moment is to really get this new album out there and to get it heard by as many people as I can. Hopefully, I will be able to sell enough records to keep on making more albums. My world revolves around singing, recording, writing and touring. I love doing all of these wonderful things that I get to do. I plan to continue doing them. Personally, I take good care of my husband and my family and we count our blessings. Those are my loves, music and family, and they make my world go round,” she remarked.
She also complimented fellow Canadian singer-songwriter Carolyn Dawn Johnson and both ladies are tied with five wins for the prestigious Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) award for “Female Artist of the Year.” “I am thrilled that Carolyn Dawn Johnson won the award last year. She had a really great year and was on a big tour. Ironically enough, Carolyn was a member of my fan club back in the day and she came to one of my autograph lines and she told me that she was a singer and she wanted to know how to get started in country music. I recommended to her to make a few trips to Nashville. The next thing you know is that she is tied with me as the most awarded ‘female artist of the year’ in Canada and I am proud of her.”
Michelle added, “Carolyn is also a wonderful producer. She has these great ears. It takes a certain gift and talent to be able to produce records and Carolyn has that.”
