marsha thornton farther along albumGrowing up in a musical family in rural north Alabama, Marsha was singing and playing mandolin on-stage before an audience of more than 10,000 people at age 8. By the time she turned sixteen she was a featured performer in "Country Music, USA" at the famed Opryland,USA theme park in Nashville, TN. After high school graduation, Marsha attended Freed-Hardeman College in Henderson, TN on a full performance scholarship with the group "Phoenix, Flight 3", a recruiting musical group. In 1989, she paired with legendary Nashville producer Owen Bradley and was immediately signed to MCA Records and released two CD's, two videos, and toured extensively both nationally and internationally. Since leaving MCA in 1995, she has continued her musical journey thru session recordings and commercial jingles. Her latest release "Farther Along, Acappella Hymns of Farewell" on the newly formed Metronome Records label, is a CD of acapella hymns for farewell services of loved ones. She has already begun to make plans for her next Country release.
