– Molly Tuttle releases "She'll Change" today on Nonesuch Records.
The new track, from her forthcoming Nonesuch debut, is co-written by Tuttle and Old Crow Medicine Show's Ketch Secor .
An ensemble of Nashville musicians, including Ron Block, Michael "Mike" Bub, Jason Carter, Dominick Leslie and Tina Adair played on the song along with Jerry Douglas, who co-produced the song with Tuttle.
"I've always loved the rare bluegrass songs that are sung by women about women," said Tuttle of the new track. "Songs like 'It's Hard to Tell the Singer from the Song' by Hazel Dickens, and 'Ellie' by Kathy Kallick. I wanted to write my own bluegrass song about a badass woman who lives by her own rules. 'She'll Change' is my homage to the strong musical women who helped me find my own voice."
Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway—her band of bluegrass musicians featuring mandolinist Dominick Leslie, banjoist Kyle Tuttle, fiddle player Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, and bassist Shelby Means—will tour the U.S. in 2022.
Tuttle was raised in a musical family in Northern California. Since moving to Nashville in 2015, she has worked in the Americana, folk, and bluegrass communities, winning Instrumentalist of the Year at the 2018 Americana Music Awards. Tuttle's 2019 debut album was "When You're Ready." She received consecutive trophies for the International Bluegrass Music Association's Guitar Player of the Year; she was the first woman in the history of the IBMA to win that honor.
During the pandemic, Tuttle recorded a covers album, "...but i'd rather be with you," which was released in August 2020. The record, which features guest vocals from Dawes' Taylor Goldsmith and Old Crow Medicine Show's Ketch Secor, includes songs by musicians ranging from FKA Twigs to Cat Stevens, Rancid to Karen Dalton, and The National.
