FORGETTING YOU - Original song by Shirley Malcolm Sheppard

Category: People & Blogs
Duration: 00:03:53
“Forgetting You” is a bluegrass song that I wrote several years ago and the highly acclaimed Gerry Peters just added a video. Gerry plays piano, bass and drums, the very talented Tim Lorsch plans fiddle and mandolin, and Nashville’s guitar whiz Andy Riess on guitars. And sung as only Ray Barnette can sing a bluegrass number. This guy is on another planet!

“Forgetting You” was recorded by Dr. David Dees’ popular bluegrass band, Pine Grove Bluegrass Band. Dr. Dees is a past Dean at the University of Central Florida and had this to say in a press release: “What I like about Shirley Sheppard’s lyrics is the natural, conversational quality they have. There is no sense of forced rhyme or an awkward phrase thrown in just to complete a verse, but instead a smooth flow of words as natural as conversation. To my way of thinking, good lyrics must first of all be believable. When combined with a great melody, her songs are terrific.”

Mike “Ironman” Curtis, Hollywood, California: “Shirley Sheppard’s lyrics touch your soul without being maudlin or melodramatic. I’m hard to please in this respect, having a repertoire in excess of 15,000 songs and being a songwriter myself. Shirley is right up there on the very top. In a nutshell, every song I have heard of hers is hit material! Oh, and she’s a whale of a vocalist as well. All in all, a formidable yet pleasing package.”
