Hello and thank you for stopping by.  You've reached the stomping grounds of me, Singer/Songwriter, Anne E. DeChant.  

I'm proud to announce the release of the long awaited CD,
"The Sun Coming In"

Praise for "The Sun Coming In"

"...a passionate prophetess who has come in from the wild, rough edges intact and ready to rock....

DeChant is our wake-up call to all of the possibilities found in songs and stories when they're told with integrity, honesty and heart.  She is what the future of Americana music needs to

be in order to endure."

    -No Depression, Terry Roland

"Now there's a woman with a fire in her belly."
 -The Cleveland Plain Dealer


“'Fly Away' is so poignant and well written it ought to be a huge country hit for someone."

           -Cool Cleveland, Anastasia Pantsios



"The lyrics to 11 tracks on the album-all written or co-written by DeChant, have a breadth that take them to a level above and beyond 'mere' songs, good as they are AS songs."

    -The Cleveland Plain Dealer,
Chuck Yarborough



"Her music is a bold celebration of the essence of what it is to be alive in the moment."

        -No Depression, Terry Roland

Watermelon Wine and the Poetry of Americana Music

Caroline Marshall Droughon Center for the Arts and Humanities, Auburn University,, Debardeleben St., Aurburn, AL

Award-winning Nashville songwriter Anne E. DeChant teams with Alabama author Frye Gaillard for “Watermelon Wine: The Poetry of Southern Music,” a unique program of reading and song. In his award-winning book, Watermelon Wine, Gaillard maintains that great songwriters, like DeChant, explore the depths of the human heart with all the subtlety and feeling of our finest novelists and poets. Gaillard will present brief readings from his works, setting the literary context for Anne E.’s all-acoustic rendition of her songs.

Drummer falls through club window, Bluebird Cafe Round 2-1-2016 

Ok, I have seen a lot of things in Nashville like Kris Kristofferson and Loretta Lynn at the Ryman and Marty Stewart walking around East Nashville.  But I've also missed some things in Nashville.   

This winter I missed 9" of snow there AND this past Friday, I missed this at Roberts Western World, my favorite hang on lower Broadway.  Just so you know, the drummer in The Don Kelley Band in this video is A OK and Don Kelley Band has had over 100,000 hits on this video, so it's comedy not tragedy.  Everything…

Snow Globes, Who Fixes Things?, Bluebird Cafe 

Good afternoon to you, 

Nashville, you may come out of the snow globe now!

Wow, we received lots of messages (and photos) about 9"+ of snow in our home city down south.  We are still up north in Canada, where amazingly, we have less snow than music city.  But we understand that temperatures are rising. 

Busy finalizing my spring tour.  I'll visit lots of new places including some of the awesome independent radio stations playing "The Sun Coming In".  Stops include, WHAY 98.3FM in Whitley City KY, WDVX
