Grammy nominated hit songwriter from Nashville, TN., Mary Ann Kennedy, creates music that celebrates the horse. A level 3 Parelli natural horsemanship student herself, Mary Ann seems to express what we all feel in our hearts for our beloved horses and the life we all live with them. Through melody, rhythm and humor in song, this is music that we horse lovers can listen and ride to. Along with her two former cds, "The Trail Less Traveled" & "Hoofbeats, Heartbeats & Wings", "The Rhythm of the Ride" is indeed OUR music. Music from the heart about horses and the animals we love. There's none other like it.
"I have 2 passions in my life. The love of horses and animals, and the love of music. "The Trail Less Traveled", "Hoofbeats, Heartbeats & Wings" and the newly released "The Rhythm of the Ride" embraces them both. My two soul animals: my dear pug, Choy, and the colt I raised, Tonka, shared a birthday on May 16th. Choy was 15 years old and Tonka was 9 when their souls flew away together in August of 2000. Through my deep grief, little did I know that they would inspire a whole new chapter in my life. I began writing songs about them and other animal loves of my life. Death and rebirth, the circle of life….it is amazing and I continue to be grateful. They are now my angels, they're 'not really gone'. My hope is that hearing this music will inspire healing, joy and celebration of life."
