Is there anyone more real or country than Patsy Cline?” says Laurel Wright of The Young Fables. “I have been singing this song since I was 8, but it sounds the way it does now thanks to Wes.

The Young Fables:

The Young Fables (TYF) are a promising modern traditional country duo comprised of three-time American Idol vet Laurel Wright and accomplished guitarist and vocalist Wes Lunsford. The act hails from Maryville, TN and has already collected impressive accolades including the Grand Prize at the Texaco Country Showdown which landed Laurel on the Ryman Auditorium stage at age 16. Fast forward five years to 2017, TYF spent the year engaging and organically expanding their grassroots following while on the road supporting their debut release Two. This year, TYF have wrapped recording on their sophomore album titled Old Songs with the Grammy Award-winning producer Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay, Brandon Heath & Caedmon’s Call). These ten songs establish The Young Fables‘ sonic home in the Country/Americana community as a modern proclaimer and preservationist of classic country’s storytelling roots.
