About Sally Barris
Nashville-based artist and Wrensong Publishing writer, Sally Barris, has managed to be successful in the mainstream world of country music without giving up her folk & Celtic roots.
Her unique style, influenced by artists such as: Dolores Keane, Tony Rice, Dougie Maclean, Triona Ni Dhomhnaill & Richard Thompson, is what makes her stand out in a city known for cookie cutter talent. Whether in her own hands or those of a well-established artist, such as, Lee Ann Womack, or a newcomer like American Idol finalist, Kellie Pickler, Sallys music is unmistakably recognizable.
Some catalog highlights include: Reluctant Daughter (Martina McBride), Some Things I Know (Lee Ann Womack), Im On My Way (Kellie Pickler), The Innocent Years (Kathy Mattea) and Honesuckle Sweet (Jessi Alexander) which appeared in the Miramax film An Unfinished Life.
