An accomplished fiddler and a songwriter of distinction, Amanda Shires played a prominent role within Americana in the 2010s and 2020s, as both a side musician and solo artist and as a member of the Highwomen. Shires worked as a journeyman through the 2000s and into the 2010s, releasing indie albums and collaborating with the likes of Neal Casal, Justin Townes Earle, Rod Picott, and Todd Snider — musicians who split the difference between Americana and alternative rock. Her breakthrough came when she joined Jason Isbell’s the 400 Unit — the two songwriters would later marry — which not only brought her a Grammy but set the stage for the release of To the Sunset, her first album to reach beyond the confines of Americana.
