Whitney Mann is an old soul with a childâs glow. Her story is only beginning. Itâs the story of a poetic farm girl from Michigan who grew up to open for Loretta Lynn. Itâs the story of a young woman whose voice will break your heart but whose songs will bring you back for more. Her new package of country ballads and barn tales is called The Western Sky.
âWhitney Mann is the best kept secret in Wisconsin,â says Willie Nelson Production Manager John T. Selman, who watched 26-year-old Mann open for Nelson. âSheâs raw, sheâs real. Whitney sings and writes from the heart. You canât ask for more than that from a musician.â
Listening to The Western Sky is like admiring a spread of framed photos arranged on top of an old upright piano. Itâs a harvest of emotions and devotions to all things home.
âHomeâ is The Western Skyâs second track. Comfort food of the highest order. âThe song describes a place where everything feels easy and comfortable,â says Mann. âThe song is about finding a place that leaves you feeling at peace.â Itâs a jaunty track that Dolly and Porter would have felt at home with in 1971.
Mann says she doesnât intentionally write country music. âMy songs just turn out that way.â The reason may be because she has no choice in the matter. Itâs in her bones. Mann grew up on her fatherâs farm in southern Michigan. Township population: 400. Country music on the radio. Mom on piano at church on Sunday mornings.
These are the kinds of experiences that lead people to good things. Theyâve led Mann to a country voice that is growing in strength by the hour.
âWhitney has one of the most pure and emotionally charged voices Iâve ever heard,â says Don Kronberg, promoter for Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn and George Jones tours. Heâs the guy who booked her to open different programs for all three country giants. âHer ability to immediately connect with audiences is a rare quality that will allow her to build a very large fan baseâ¦quickly.â
Itâs only a matter of time before those with talent as large as her own will be opening shows for her. Meanwhile Mann headlines all around the Midwest. She and her band also continue to be a go-to opening act for some of the Midwestâs most treasured contemporary singer-songwriters, artists like gifted Chicago troubadour Joe Pug.
Mann is captivating as a soloist but sheâs smart enough to surround herself with musicians who seem to understand, to the note, the consequences of what she sings about. Adam Carginâs snare drum inserts an evocative, sad military feel to âMiss You on the Farm.â The song is Mannâs ode to her grandpa, a World War II vet.
Husband and wife team Chris Wagoner and Mary Gaines keep it all in the family on mandolin, fiddle, cello, accordian and supporting vocals.
Thereâs a great photo of Whitney and Loretta chatting in the dressing room before their show last winter. Two generations of country girls shooting the breeze. Itâs the kind of picture thatâs destined for a piano top. No one would ever claim looking at it that Whitney will be the next Loretta. But damn. She may be the next best thing.
