Best Off-the-Row Country Act 

The Wrights

Hardworking husband-and-wife duo Adam and Shannon Wright keep bucking convention with two album releases within a year, both wholly different from each other, and both wholly different than anything else currently going on in Nashville or country music. This year's covers album, In the Summertime, strips favorite songs down to their emotional core, focusing on the tenderly evocative interplay of their voices and softly strummed instruments. Shannon owns one of modern music's most subtly vibrant and emotionally expressive voices, stridently avoiding the over-singing that characterizes so much modern music. Ultimately, it's their well-tuned tastes in songs and arrangements that sets them apart, and it's the feeling they leave lingering in the air as a song finishes that keeps listeners coming back for more. —MICHAEL McCALL
