Album Notes
Mary Ann writes:

Dear Kindred Spirits,

Announcing the release of my 3rd CD, "The Rhythm of the Ride".

I had so much fun making this record. I wanted to bring a different energy level this time, some bigger tracks and a little different production approach. I hope with all my heart that you (and your horses) feel the intention and love that went into this music.
I hope you are inspired to laugh, shed a tender tear, ride, and dance with your horses to this new collection of songs that celebrate them.

"The Rhythm of the Ride" LYRICS are available on Mary Ann's website. A link is provided here on CD Baby for your convenience. See the link section on the lower left side of the page!

There is only one way to experience the music of Mary Ann Kennedy. Just listen to it. There is no format for it. There is no category for it. There is no precedent for it. Mary Ann is the voice for animal lovers everywhere!!

There are very few people in this world whose lives have not been irrevocably changed by a relationship with an animal. This newest release by Mary Ann, "The Rhythm of the Ride" celebrates horses and the animals we love. From her ranch in Tennessee, Mary Ann sees, breathes and feels the strength of nature, the communication between and among horses and animals and converts both to lyrics, music and arrangements with amazing clarity. It captivates the listener.

Mary Ann has 20+ years of traditional success in the country and pop fields. She has worked with Emmy Lou Harris, Sting, Art Garfunkel, Reba McEntire, Patty Loveless, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Restless Heart, LeaAnn Rimes and Pam Tillis, among others. Her first grammy nomination was for her single, "Ring On Her Finger, Time On Her Hands," recorded by Lee Greenwood and Reba. Restless Heart's "I'll Still Be Loving You" earned a second grammy nomination for Mary Ann and co-writers Pam Rose and Pat Bunch.

Both of Mary Ann's prior CDs ("The Trail Less Traveled" and "Hoofbeats, Heartbeats & Wings") are also available on CD Baby! Check them out!

Cowgirl Strikes It Right Again
Mary Ann REALLY knows what she's singing about and it comes through in glowing force in this CD. Loved every single preview and can't wait to get it in my hands. I ordered 2 copies today. I have to share this music with other cowgirls. Good job Mary Ann!

Rythm of the Ride
I love this CD - I love all the songs, especially Rythm of the Ride and Hoofprints on my Heart (makes me almost cry)...Her voice is wonderful and so are her songs about dogs and horses. They are also my true loves. Thankyou Mary Ann!!!

Christine Lunn

The Rythm of the Ride
Once again another winner. Mary Ann has written songs that are so good for the horse lover's soul. I play the CD as I ride in my arena, and my horses get right into the "Rythm of the Ride" Hoofprints on My Heart is my favorite. I hope the song "Tennessee" will be heard over and over until people understand. All her CD's are wonderful, it would be hard for me to pick a favorite. You are a wonderful person Mary Anne and your animal family is blessed to have you in their lives. Christine Lunn


Rhythm Of The Ride
Mary Ann's other 2 CD's are great, but I think this is her best yet! It's been playing in the barn almost non-stop since it arrived in the mail. LOVE IT!

The Rhythm of the Ride
LOVE this new cd! This is my third in Mary Ann's collection! They are ALL wonderful! What a gifted artist! Her words bring so much joy and true understanding of the shared passion between horse and human! Hoofprints on my Heart makes me cry every time!! It's the true love that is felt in my heart! Thank you! Many blessings!

Great songs and music
Mary Ann Kennedy's third solo release lives up to its title, thats for sure. Her songwriting skills are excellent. She has a way with words and music that is pretty hard to find elsewhere. Most of the tracks have acoustic arrangements, but from time to time an electric guitar is added as an extra finish. The arrangements suit her vocal style perfectly. All in all a very enjoyable CD. Now if someone knew how to persuade Mary Ann to team up with Pam Rose again for another Kennedy Rose album...!

Rhythum of the Ride
I wasn't sure what to expect as I've never heard her music b4. I really like it. I play it when I am in the barn grooming my horse and it always reminds me why I love horses and what a blessing it is to own these magical creatures. I would highly recommend it.

The Rhythm of the Ride
MAK's latest is everything we were waiting for. It's lovely to hear, beautifully produced, lovingly packaged & has a heartbreakingly fine ring of truth about relationships - both inter- and intra specie! It makes me want to dance and laugh and cry and BE with my horse. I ride to it often on my ipod and it really has "the rhythm of the ride". A musical blessing. YOU GO MAK! xxo
