"Sunny Came Home" singer Shawn Colvin is bringing her songs to Fairfield County.
Colvin is releasing the 30th-anniversary acoustic edition of her debut album "Steady On." She is on tour and making a stop Thursday, Aug. 9 at StageOne at FTC in Fairfield.
Three-time Grammy winner Shawn Colvin released the original Steady On in 1989, which won Best Contemporary Folk Album the following spring.
With her wistful revisitation of the first album's well-traveled songs, Colvin’s lyrics come into sharp focus. The 10-track album includes "Diamond In The Rough", "Shotgun Down The Avalanche", "Stranded" and "Cry Like An Angel."
"I was 32 years old, and the dream of my life had been fulfilled,” Colvin says, “not only because I made an album but mostly because I had written or co-written every song, an accomplishment that was hard-won. I was so proud. My feeling was then—and still is—that if I never made another album, Steady On would have been enough.”"
Colvin is probably best known for "Sunny Came Home" which was a commercial success and considered Colvin's biggest hit. The folk-rock song won a Grammy Award for Record of the Year and Song of the Year in 1998.
