Album Notes
Ali Shumate is a nationally released singer-songwriter who has enjoyed much success in 2006. The first single released from her debut album Heartbreak Train has been on Billboard Hot Country / Popular Single Sales charts for several weeks this year, and was recently selected as a Country Album of the Year finalist for the IMA sponsored by the Musicians Atlas and Borders Music. Ali has been on an FYE promotional store tour in 2006 to promote the album release and perform and meet folks all over the East Coast. Over the past couple of years Ali has performed at the Gibson Showcase Theater and BB Kings during Fan Fair week in Nashville as well as many festivals and fairs. She recently joined forces with several talented folks to form her touring band Scattered Grass.

Ali grew up in the mountains of West Virginia listening to mountain music on the radio on Sundays. Her earliest memory of performing was at a store in Northfork, West Virginia when she was only four years old. Her dad would take me downtown and she would sing for people. "I loved singing for people. It was the only time I could be as loud as I wanted to be without getting into trouble." She went on to pursue classical training in piano and voice, as well as strings. Her love of mountain music has been the wellspring for the songs that she writes that have an old, comfortable feel to them. Her desire to be a part of the preservation and handing down of this beautiful music form also fuels her passion for bluegrass music. It does however delight Ali that not only has this album been embraced by the bluegrass community, but it has also been well accepted in the traditional country genre as well. "After all, country is going back to it's roots".

She came from a long line of mountain musicians. Her great, great grandfather and his sons had a huge musical influence in a town at the turn of the century called Pocahontas, Virginia. Coal miners built an Opera house in the city in the 1800’s and her family got their musical start there.

We hope you enjoy Heartbreak Train - please visit Ali at her myspace web site for up to date concert information.

Ali creates a great variety within her lyrics and a wonderful upbeat sound. I would strongly recommend this CD to anyone. I hope to see many many more and a concert. I enjoy Travelin State Of Mind and listen to it over and over. I am astounded with her talent and the artist that work with her.

If you are going to only buy one bluegrass album in 2006, this is the one you sh
This is bluegrass at it's very best. This album joins the legends who have done it right from Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, and Earl Scruggs to Alison Krauss and Union Station. Already one of the "essential" albums for bluegrass collections, Ali Shumate performs bluegrass like she's singing to millions in a crowded stadium. If you are going to only buy one bluegrass album this year, you better buy this one! Sr. Editor

At last year's Fan Fair, Ali Shumate's performance took my breath away!
Last year at the Gibson Bluegrass Theater in Nashville, I had the incredible privilege of seeing Ali Shumate perform on one of the great historic stages in Nashville. She knocked 'em out at Fan Fair last year. Over 145,000 fans were in Nashville for country's biggest party.

Nestled next to the Grand Ole Opry, the Gibson Bluegrass Theater is one of the most prestigious acoustic stages in Music City. Ali Shumate brought the house down. She performed her entire album to a crowd of absolute die hard bluegrass fans and they loved her. Stay tuned for more great authentic bluegrass from one of the most beautiful and precious artists you'll ever meet. She'll remind you of Dolly, Parton guaranteed!

loved it, I listen to it all the time
I have never been a bluegrass fan, but I decided to listen to Ali Shumate and I loved it. The music is great and I find myself singing the songs all the time. Even if your not a bluegrass fan, take a listen I'm sure you will love it. I've got the cd and my kids love it to. Out of Time is my favorate song on the album.

Angie Shealy

Ali Shumate is the real deal!
This album is inspiring to every woman out there! The music touches your soul and makes you want to buy a pair of boots all at the same time! I am so impressed with Heartbreak Train. Her perfume still lingers, I almost can see her..... Man, AWESOME LYRICS! You go girl!

David Jakubiak

Original and Inspiring
It is refreshing to hear an album with all original material as presented in Alice Shumate's debut album. The song "Same Old Me Different You" is sure to be hit. Other tracks such as The Winds They Are A Changin" and Comin For My Baby Tonight" provide a diverse and upbeat sound. How Will I Make It ..God Knows, is an inspiring gospel tune. As a performer and music instructor, I would recommend this album to other aspiring musicians.


Really good!
Just getting to know the Ali Shumate sound, and I love it! Having fun discovering her style. Will be looking forward to more of her work in the future.

Love the lyrics-love the vocal-keep it coming

Changed me from a non Bluegrass listener to a Bluegrass listener.
I have always stayed away from Bluegrass Music. With Ali Shumate's CD, this has changed my mind about Bluegrass Music. Great Music, great lyrics and songs that you understand. I will be looking forward for more of Ali and probably start looking at other Bluegrass Artist. Great CD Ali.
