In less than a year, Michelle became the first Canadian‐born artist in the modern era of country music to have a Top Ten hit in America, a Number One video on CMT‐USA (also for “Take It Like A Man”) and to win a major U.S. music industry award (the Academy of Country Music Top New Female Vocalist award in 1992). The song also catapulted Michelle to superstardom in Canada, receiving a total of twelve music industry awards, including the 1993 Canadian Country Music Association’s Fans’ Choice Entertainer Of The Year award and double platinum honors for Now & Then the same year.
With the pandemic coming to a close, Michelle Wright is ready for her return to the road and is poised for the next phase of what has already been a stellar international musical career, one that has seen her grace concert stages around the world and earned her twenty‐five Top Ten radio hits, more than forty major awards (including her 2011 induction into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame). Michelle continues to show her fans that the feisty girl from rural Merlin, Ontario is here to stay. Or, as she says, “What a way to make a living! I plan on making and playing music for a long time to come.”
There are too many other accomplishments to mention from before and between those two periods to include here. Michelle is living her art and her art is her life. – Live Music Ontario editor
