article imageMichelle Wright talks 'Impact Award,' new songs and technology Special

Canadian country star Michelle Wright chatted with Digital Journal about her two new songs "Lovin' This Day" and "Attitude Is Everything," which will be released on August 31.
On her two new songs, Wright said, "That is always a unique challenge. They come in different ways and different fashions. I was busy writing and listening to different songs. I just fell in love with them. These songs helped me add a few more chops to my vocal toolbox. I am pleased with how it sounds, and that's the best place I can imagine being right now."
Wright noted that the song "Lovin' This Day" was pitched to her about 15 years ago. "I absolutely loved the song, but it wasn't right for the format at the time," she admitted. "You are always trying to record singles that work on radio. I always loved the song and I am so thrilled that I finally got to record it."
These two songs will be released on August 31, while Wright continues to work on more music. "That is what I like about this process. Before you would have to wait until the entire album is done, but now, I can introduce a few new songs in my shows," she said.
This past May, it was announced that Wright would receive the 2018 Impact Award by the Country Music Association of Ontario sponsored by Canadian Music Week. "That was a delight. It is a relatively new award in our award show in Ontario," she said. "Every province in Canada has an award show like that. Previous recipients of this prestigious Impact Award were Blue Rodeo and Gordon Lightfoot. I don't mind being in the company of that Canadian lineage."
Digital transformation of the music business
On the impact of technology on the music business, Wright said, "There are pros and cons to a lot of these changes that have been going on. I simply embrace technology, and the best part of it is that you can make your music available immediately. That to me is really cool. Being able to perform a song on stage and then telling people that they can download it or stream it on iTunes or Spotify. That is really wonderful."
Wright continued, "Economically, it might not be as abundant as it used to be. It's an interesting conversation. For me, I am so thankful that I came up at the time that I did. I am thrilled that I get to be a part of what is going on now. I went from album to cassette to CD to downloading and streaming. It is just amazing. I consider myself an incredibly fortunate artist."
