New Single!


A song co-written with Frye Gaillard has been released as the latest single by the Grand Ole Opry’s George Hamilton IV and Alabama songwriter Kathryn Scheldt. The duet, “A Perfect World,” is part gospel, part social justice anthem, emphasizing values that most Americans hold in common, despite the partisan divisions in the country. “I’m deeply honored that George Hamilton IV would record a song co-written by Kathryn Scheldt and me,” said Gaillard. “George, almost certainly, will be a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame before his stellar career is over. From his number one country hit ‘Abilene,’ to his heartfelt recording of Bob Dylan’s ‘Forever Young,’ George has put his own stamp on country music and has done more than anyone to take this form of music to an international audience. We hope the song will do well for him.” 
The single will soon be available for download through Lamon Records

Song-Writing Collaboration

Frye Gaillard and Gulf Coast singer-songwriter Kathryn Scheldt have co-written songs for three Nashville-produced CDs – Southern Girl in 2009, Southern Wind in 2010, and One Good Reason in 2011. Each CD has built on the success of the one before, with Southern Girl gaining international acclaim – including a rave review in Australia’s Country Music Capital News – and airplay on more than 30 stations the United States. For the recording of Southern Wind, Kathryn signed with Lamon Records of Nashville, an independent label currently celebrating its 50th anniversary with a roster of artists ranging from the Grand Ole Opry’s George Hamilton IV to the Grammy-nominated Moody Brothers. “The CD is filled with great songs,” declared The Americana Gazette, and the album’s first single, “The Last Shrimp Boat,” anchors the soundtrack for the documentary film, In the Path of the Storms, currently making the rounds on campuses and theaters in Alabama. The third CD, One Good Reason, produced by Nashville guitarist Mike Severs and also released on Lamon, resulted in the first chart hit co-written by Scheldt and Gaillard. The single, “Almost Cheatin’,” reached number 8 on the New Music Weekly Country Chart and number 5 on the Indie Chart. In all, the song was played more than 18,000 times on stations in the United States and ten other countries. A fourth CD is now in the works, which will include a collaboration with Gulf Coast guitarist Ricky Hirsch, a founding member of the Hall of Fame rock group, Wet Willie.
