Songstress Amanda St John is headed for the music capital of the world.

The soul and blues singer from Glenariff has been invited to Nashville, Tennessee, to work with well known music producer Charles Yingling, best known for his work on country legend Willie Nelson’s most recent album and highly acclaimed songwriter Benita Hill who has written for super stars such as Garth Brooks.

And as Amanda, 35, prepares for her US visit later this year she is releasing her latest single If I Should Fall on September 22.

She said: “I’m really looking forward to Nashville in November and to be invited to work with such well known and established songwriters is a privilege.

“I’m really excited about the trip as I will be promoting my new single If I Should Fall while I’m out there.”
