Victoria Shaw’s Cry Wolf — Flashback Friday [VIDEO]
We’ve come to the end of another week, that means it’s time to go back in time to check out another country song from the past. Today is Victoria Shaw’s 50th birthday. She is more known for writing hit songs for other artists, but she did have a solo career in the 90’s and this week I feature one of her singles, “Cry Wolf”.
This was Victoria’s first major label single from her debut album “In Full View“. This song as well as the singles that followed had little chart success. But that doesn’t mean Shaw has had an unsuccessful career in country music. She has written #1 Hits for Garth Brooks such as “The River” And “She’s Every Woman“, Doug Stone’s “Too Busy Being In Love” and John Michael Montgomery’s “I Love The Way You Love Me” which also won an ACM for song of the year. She has also written tunes for Eric Church, Emerson Drive, Tanya Tucker, Trisha Yearwood and Sarah Buxton as well as artists outside of country. She’s also tried her hand in producing as she helped with Lady Antebellum’s Debut CD. Most importantly though Victoria has a connection with GNA as she played the very first CountryFest back in 1994.
Happy 50th Birthday Victoria and here’s to much more success in songwriting!
