Today we continue with our popular “Your Voice, Your Choice” feature on Belles and Gals. We introduce one of our favourite songs from a country artist and then the artist tells us in turn about a song that has inspired them and has a special place in their heart. Today we feature UK country artist Hannah Paris!
Hannah Paris is a fast rising star on the UK country scene. Hannah released her first E.P. ‘Short Stories’ in the summer, which hit the top 10 in the UK country chart – an amazing result for a first release from an independent artist. ‘You, You, You’ is the opening song to the excellent E.P and you can listen for yourself and see why Hannah Paris is making a real mark on the scene. Just last week, Hannah appeared at Hard Rock Country in London and it’s already looking like a busy 2018 for the Essex based singer.
Hannah has chosen ‘Before He Cheats’ by Carrie Underwood
“I love the attitude and the energy that Carrie brings to the song. The song has a real edge and a rockiness to it – she’s not going to be messed around, she’s not being walked over and he’d better watch out! This is a revenge song that girls can relate to.
I think Carrie is amazing as an artist. I love her voice and I love her sassiness and I think she is a great storyteller. She can also go from singing amazing ballads to these rockier numbers. One moment she’ll be singing in a ball gown, and the next moment she’ll be in her ripped jeans and letting her hair down.”
