Singles and EPs
Alannah McCready has made a lifelong habit out of pouring her heart and soul into every task she puts her mind to. The Minneapolis native discovered her expertise as a hockey goalie at skating camp at the age of 10 when she stopped all but two shots from entering the net, proudly telling her father, “I think I might be good at that.” But it was her mother who imprinted her with a love of country music that she grew up on in Oklahoma, the young McCready learning how to sing by watching the techniques of Trisha Yearwood and Martina McBride. Throughout her youth, McCready maintained her skills in both music and hockey. After high school, she attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and was part of two NCAA Women’s Hockey National Championships. Love Hangover and follow-up album Ricochet Heart set McCready on the path that’s led her to her upcoming EP. “This new music, I feel like I’m finally in the lane that I should be in,” McCready says of the album that took a decade to be ready for and allows her to feel “completely confident and solid in knowing that this is my lane I want to be in and this is how I want to sound and how I want people to see me as an artist.” Alannah’s new first single, “Something Like That,” will be released in Feb. 2021.
