"It's a great honor," singer/songwriter Shawn Colvin says of her Martin M3SC, a limited edition signature model guitar the revered instrument maker is putting into production. "It's very simple, not flashy or anything, and that's the way I wanted it. It plays easily, and it's got a beautiful, beautiful sound."
Although it's hardly the tactic one might suggest, Shawn Colvin says approaching her new album with "complete terror" ultimately worked for her. "Whole New You," due March 27 from Columbia, was "difficult from start to finish," says Colvin with a rueful laugh. "I kept thinking we would turn a corner, but it was worse than giving birth."
Shawn Colvin's new Columbia album, ''Whole New You,'' will be in stores March 27. It is Colvin's first album of original material since 1996's ''A Few Small Repairs," which debuted at No. 39 on The Billboard 200.k
