Sean McConnell has released the emotional music video for ‘Price Of Love’, one of his most personal songs to date, taken from forthcoming album A Horrible Beautiful Dream (out August 6th).
Nashville newspaper The Tennessean published a story yesterday (1/7) written by Brad Schmitt, that offers a rare glimpse into Sean and Mary Susan’s life — specifically sharing their journey to bring their adopted daughter Abiella home. Abi (AY-bee) is Sean’s “greatest teacher” and the inspiration behind ‘Price of Love‘.
This isn’t a glam story about Sean’s music or hit songwriting career — it’s a beautiful story about a family who is loving their beautiful little girl and how they have changed each other for the better. Read the piece here.
A sought-after songsmith and versatile producer, McConnell examines both the frailty and strength of the human spirit through A Horrible Beautiful Dream’s 13 songs, all born during the pandemic. The new collection features guests and collaborators The Wood Brothers, Fancy Hagood, Natalie Hemby, Audra Mae and Dan Tyminski.
A voracious creator, McConnell produced records for four other artists out of his studio while producing A Horrible Beautiful Dream, all during the destabilising chaos of 2020. He penned 11 of the album’s 13 tracks on his own (and co-wrote the two others).
