Based in Atlanta, Alannah McCready is originally from Minnesota and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison on a full athletic scholarship for women’s hockey. She won a pair of National Division 1 championships as a goalie for the Badgers and played in two NCAA Division 1 Women’s Ice Hockey National Championships.
But instead of following a career in sports, she followed her musical dream and pursued a career as a country music singer and songwriter. Out April 27th, Ricochet Heart is Alannah’s sophomore release, and all of its tracks were either written or co-written by her. The video for the album’s first single, “Last Girl Standing,” made its debut on The Boot’s website recently: theboot.com/alannah-mccready-last-girl-standing-music-video/.
