Loretta Lynn x Legacy!
Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, has inked an historic multi-album deal with American music legend Loretta Lynn.
The new agreement covers several albums of new material, produced by Patsy L Russell and John Carter Cash, recorded over the past seven years at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
The first title in Legacy's new Loretta Lynn album series is slated for release in 2015 and will be the artist's first collection of new recordings since Van Lear Rose, her 2004 collaboration with Jack White, which took home a pair of Grammys, including Best Country Album of the Year.
Loretta Lynn is a LEGEND! And we're stoked for new material in the near future.
It's also very special.
Since 2007, Loretta Lynn, her daughter Patsy L Russell and John Carter Cash have been working together at the Cash Cabin Studio on a project that travels back and explores Loretta's musical history, from the Appalachian folk songs and gospel music she learned as a child to new interpretations of her classic hits and country standards to songs newly-written for the project.
Drawing inspiration from personal memories and deep connections to American music, Lynn's new recordings capture the essence of these songs in intimate new performances, the way they might've sounded growing up in the 1930s and '40s in Butchers Hollow, Kentucky.
This is true American roots music.
