Shantell co-wrote it this fab song with Bill DiLuigi and Sarah Allison Turner.

Ogden recently completed a highly successful UK/ Ireland tour where she played at notable festivals such as Buckle and Boots in Manchester (Sat 25th June: The Acoustic Stage). The new video features a live in-studio performance with her band in Nashville, as well as some train footage with a bit of a backstory.

“While I was on tour between England and Ireland in June and July, I stopped over at the Isle of Man for a couple of days,” said Shantell. “They have a fantastic old-time steam train there, and I couldn’t resist capturing the ride on film. When I got together with Neal Ebanks back in Nashville who directed the video, we decided we should play off the song’s theme and use some of the footage I took. It was a really fun project!” (Find Isle of Man Steam Railway Supporters' Association Website | Facebook)

Truth About Trains" is being promoted by Lee Williams of CMR Nashville/Django Promotions and will be hitting the airways on HotDisc stations beginning August 1. 

I love the song and we’re really excited about continuing to promote Shantell’s new music worldwide,” said Lee Williams.

Shantell said: "I'm thrilled to be playing the festival along with so many great artists at the Buckle and Boots Country Festival in Manchester! I appreciate the festival staff and the fans for making such a great event possible."

Last year she promoted her single “God Counts Every Tear” (Joe Doyle/ Brian Kolb/ Shantell Ogden) across the UK & Europe courtesy of the June 2015 HOTDISC #198 promo disc. She made a debut at #34 on the Hotdisdc Top 40 debut spending 9 weeks on the chart climbing to No.21. The song, promoted by Lee Williams, was hard-hitting singer-songwriter fare with a nice spacious production. For The Country Record featured the track and in review said that it was: “grounded in a more modern and commercial country pop sound than perhaps her other material is. Still, even though there are multiple guitars involved in the arrangement, each one is given its own timbre and “voice”, allowing a balanced mix with room for variety instead of chaos. As a result, Shantell’s distinctive vocals are able to cut through with crystal clarity, even when things build up for the passionate chorus. The lyrics are heavy but have an uplifting effect, assuring the listener that God is listening to all our pain and hurt, and that no prayers go ignored.

Her previous Hotdisc Top 40 outings were “Love Shouldn't Hurt” (HD185; May 2014; #19 debut) which reached #18 and “Looking For My Last” (HD183; Feb 2014; #28 debut) peaked at No.21. “The best thing about making music is sharing it with others, and I’m so excited to be releasing a single with the help of CMR Nashville,” said Shantell. “Looking for My Last is about being a ‘last love’ for someone instead of a first.
On 28th April 2015 she released her 8 track GHOSTS IN THE FIELD (Hip Farm Chic Records) which contained the standout title cut and “Be My Rain”.
