Editorial Reviews

About the Artist

Arriving in Nashville in 1978, Mary Ann signed her first publishing deal. Within 3 years time she was signed to a record deal as part of the group Calamity Jane and was experiencing her first single as a songwriter, the Grammy nominated "Ring On Her Finger, Time On Her Hands". After Calamity Jane, in 1981, Mary Ann signed with Almo Irving Music. During that time she co-wrote the recently recorded Martina McBride hit "Safe In The Arms Of Love". In fact, a second song earned a Grammy nomination: "I’ll Still Be Loving You" by Restless Heart. Mary Ann and co-writer, Pam Rose, had the wonderful opportunity to join Emmylou Harris as her harmony singers, and have since performed as singers and players on several of her tours and concerts. The duo sound they developed came to be known as Kennedy-Rose, and they were fortunate enough to be heard by Sting, and he signed them to his Pangaea record label. They toured with Sting and wrote and produced 2 CD’s between the years 1990-95, "Hai Ku" and "Walk The Line". After the Kennedy-Rose chapter, Mary Ann began focusing on her country music business pursuits again. As a writer, she signed to EMI music for 3 years. As a co-owner and publisher of Gila Monster Music and Dreamcatcher Music, she spent several years working with and developing writers, producing their song demos as well. A number of hits were realized out of those catalogs. Mary Ann has had the pleasure of singing backgrounds and playing mandolin on many Nashville records, and on some of the songs she has had recorded. She has recorded with Martina McBride, Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes, Art Garfunkel, Pam Tillis, Hank Williams Jr., John Berry, Kathy Mattea, Emmylou Harris, Blackhawk, Ashley Cleveland, Mindy McCready, Anita Cochran and Caroline Dawn Johnson, to name some. The culmination of her 2 loves, music and horses & animals, has been expressed on her first solo CD "The Trail Less Traveled". "I was inspired after losing 2 of my beloved animal soul mates in the summer of 2000. Tonka, my beautiful 9 year old pinto gaited horse, and Choy, my 15 year old sweet pug. Through my grief, little did I know that losing them would inspire a whole new musical chapter in my life. My mission is to share this music that celebrates our relationships with our animal families and hope that it will inspire healing, joy and a celebration of life to all who hear it."

5.0 out of 5 stars Touches the animal-loving heart like no other music! October 21, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was blown away by this CD. My animals are the greatest source of joy in my life and this CD puts all of my feelings into the words and music I could never express myself! Mary Ann's love for her horses and other animal family members shines through in her soulful voice. She reaches right out and touches the heart of anyone who listens. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry...just like the animals who "grace our lives" do every day. Here's to Mary Ann for helping us all recognize and appreciate how much love our dogs, horses, cats and other animal friends add to our existence on this planet!

Format:Audio CD
What is up with Parelli's shipping charges.? Over $8.00. Go to maryannkennedy.com directly and you can get a two CD set for less.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Trail Less Traveled July 16, 2007
By B Lynch
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Anyone that lives on a farm will love the words to this music. It doesn't hurt any that the music also has the right rhythm for farm life. The songs describe farm life and it is the road less traveled now days. You have a better quality of life and learn responsibilities that you would never have learned otherwise. This CD reflects it perfectly.

Just perfect. I've bought them all so far and I love this one as much as the others.

When I listen to her music (often) I take time out to spend with one of my 4-leggeds. We aren't given forever as she says in one of her songs, so we have to fit all that we can into every moment we have with them.

Thanks so much for your songs Mary Ann, may you keep writing for many, many more years!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for animal lovers June 14, 2008
Format:Audio CD
If anyone has had a passion for horses, this is the album that will speak to your heart. I own this and have given it to many of my friends and family members as gifts. Mary Ann Kennedy has a beautiful voice in a country style and sings about past and present loves that have touched her life.

I love this CD - have given as gifts and have one for myself. She touches my soul with her music. Sort of a soft country style. If you love horses, dogs, and cats you will love this CD.
