Newcomer Aubrie Sellers is making waves in the country music world with her new “garage country” album, New City Blues. Earlier this month, she showcased her incredible ability to meld rock and traditional country during her debut appearance at the Grand Ole Opry with a rousing cover of Buck Owens‘ 1966 hit single, “My Heart Skips A Beat”.
Years of performing and learning the ropes from her parents, country star Lee Ann Womack and singer-songwriter Jason Sellers, has given the 24-year-old a swagger that is rarely seen during a debut performance. The electric accompaniment gives Sellers’ puts a uniquely modern twist on the track that still manages to stay true to the sentiment of the purely country original.
This weekend, Sellers will perform at the Grand Ole Opry’s original venue – Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium – to open for Chris Stapleton during one of his three straight sold-out shows. You can read more about Sellers’ recent experience touring with Stapleton and the process that brought her new new album to life in our exclusive interview.
