Leah Seawright

“On The Backroads”
Skytone Records

Leah invites friends in radio to join her for a special performance during CRS on Wednesday, March 2, at 10 pm in the Renaissance Hotel’s Fisk Room.

Leah Seawright’s “On The Backroads,” which she co-wrote with producer Frank Green, is the tale of young and rebellious love set to a driving beat. The song appears on her album Country Girl 101, on which she wrote or co-wrote all but one song.

“This comes from a very true place,” says Seawright. “I went through those wild teenage years of sneaking out and being in love. My life’s an open book in these songs.”

A native of Fort Payne, Alabama, Seawright grew up in a musical family and eventually gained the confidence to start singing for a local band. She worked numerous jobs during the week, and sang for a little extra money on the weekends.

In 2004 she won a local singing contest, which introduced her to producer and frequent co-writer Frank Green. She also added another notable Fort Payne native to her band–Alabama drummer Mark Herndon. After hearing her music in the studio, Herndon came out of retirement to drum for her, even adding his work to her album.

“It’s just been a roller coaster,” says Seawright. “But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve always been a glass-half-full gal.”
