New album ‘Cross the Line’ enters iTunes Country Music Chart Top 10 on First Day of Release
‘Cross the Line’ is the new album by Scottish born singer-songwriter Sandy McLelland which entered the iTunes Country Music Album Chart at number nine on the first day of release, making him the only British artist currently in the Top 10 and rubbing shoulders with the cream of Country Music.
‘Cross the Line’ is unashamedly rooted in the American country, blues, folk and soul music he absorbed in his early days in Glasgow. Often full and vibrant, sometimes achingly bare and personal, Sandy is capable and comfortable across many, diverse, musical styles, always with a highly personal core.

He has written and produced music for Latin artists, significantly Spanish legend Miguel Bose with whom he achieved a series of chart topping albums, changing the landscape of contemporary Latin music along the way.
‘Cross the Line’ was entirely written, performed and produced by Sandy McLelland. A set of songs as deeply personal, as they are universal, brought vividly to life by one of the UK’s finest singers. You can catch him live solo or with his band across the UK at venues and festivals this Autumn.
“The aim of my music is to be simple and direct. Some of it is inspired by half truths, remembrances, and an imagination which keeps me awake most nights. Much of it entirely rooted in personal circumstance.”
“I have been fortunate, able to have carved a living from doing something I truly love, something I would have done anyway. There’s no way out for me even if I wanted it. My music inhabits me in the deepest way.”
“This music’ represents the culmination of a lifetimes; work and living.”
