Melonie was just fourteen when she sang on her first recording session. And by the time she'd reached high school, studio dates filled her calendar. Sammy Kershaw, John Michael Montgomery, George Jones and Kenny Chesney were among the many who made use of her voice – its easy reach from whispered intimacy to exuberance, its way of wrapping around a melody and finding truth in a lyric even the first time through a tune – Melonie Cannon’s voice became a favorite of some of country music’s best.
“Melonie Cannon is one of the best singers I know…Her new bluegrass album is fantastic….I love her voice anyway, but singing with a great bluegrass band was a good idea…They blend well together…The fact that I got to sing with her on a song I wrote makes it even better…Go Melonie.” - Willie Nelson
“Melonie Cannon has a pure and soulful sound. She has a true and honest voice that savors every note. She’s the real deal.” - Shania Twain“She’s one of the best female voices I’ve ever had the pleasure to sing with.” - Vern Gosdin
“One of the most expressive singers in Nashville, and not merely in bluegrass circles, Cannon compels you to listen to these stories of everyday life, whether she's consoling a new friend or stumbling into love after swearing it would never happen. She also submits a fine rendition of Set 'Em Up Joe, the Vern Gosdin tune written by her dad, producer Buddy Cannon. Back to Earth, a duet with Willie Nelson, is a soothing highlight, too.” - Craig Shelborne, CMT.com
