Country Music artist Shea Fisher-Durfey, the wife of 2016 PRCA World Champion Tie-Down Roper Tyson Durfey, recently released a video to accompany her new single “Don’t Rush.”
“I wrote the song in 2012 when Tyson and I first started dating,” Fisher-Durfey said. “The song is really is about our love story. The overall message of the song, which I think is super important in today’s time, is we just get so caught up in the busy-ness of life and we don’t take individual moments. We just try and rush through them. This song is about enjoying the small things in a relationship and in life and embracing every step.”
When Fisher-Durfey was 16, she signed a recording contract in Australia and had four No. 1 songs in her native country. Fisher-Durfey moved to the U.S. and signed a record deal.
“I had a top 20 song in the U.S., and then the record label closed down,” Fisher-Durfey said. “I was then without a record deal and that was around the time I went to RodeoHouston and met Tyson. Music has always been my passion and what I do, and I took a break there for a little while between meeting Tyson, getting married in 2013, starting our businesses, and children came along, and life just got crazy.”
The Durfeys have two daughters, Praise Royal, 4, and Risyn Breeze Durfey, 2. Shea is expecting the couple’s third child in June. Fisher-Durfey performed as an opening act at the 2015 and 2016 National Finals Rodeos in Las Vegas.
“One of my goals still was to do music here in the States and release songs back home (in Australia),” Fisher-Durfey said. “I started focusing on that. I went to Nashville and finished up my album that was waiting there to be finished. Last year I released a single called, ‘Imagine,’ and it did well on country radio and was released back home. I was planning to have the ‘Don’t Rush’ single out last year, but when COVID hit and the world shut down I had to take a break and wait a little bit because people weren’t able to tour or do anything.
“‘Don’t Rush’ is out now and I do have an album ready to release when the time is right. I would like to follow up with one more single before I release the album. My goal is to be able to tour and perform at rodeos, and alongside of Tyson, we can go out as a family.”
