"The Buffalo is a symbol of abundance, survival, strenght, and power. It is a reminder that we are always provided for, and that abundance is present when all reactions are honored as sacred and when gratitude is expressed to every part of the creation. Buffalo symbolism is prayer, gratitude and praise."
Shelly Fairchild was born in Clinton, Mississippi to a musical family. She began performing at an early age in church and later in her high school's show choir. Fairchild studied communications, theater and music at Mississippi College and subsequently starred in local stage shows including Grease and Always Patsy Cline. She also traveled with the national touring company for Beehive: The 60's Musical.
In 2004, Fairchild signed to Columbia Records. Her debut album, Ride, was issued in early 2005. Its lead-off single, "You Don't Lie Here Anymore", co-written with Clay Mills, peaked at No. 35 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, although subsequent singles failed to chart. She toured in support of the album including an opening spot on Rascal Flatts' sold-out Here's to You tour which also featured Blake Shelton, and was dropped from Columbia in 2005.
