10th Album On Vinyl LP!
Lori McKenna puts a magnifying glass on un-championed lives. She doesn’t just
notice the quiet and ordinary, she delights in it – effortlessly transforming
the average to extraordinary. The result is over a decade worth of songs filled
with honest stories and melodic depth, and her latest release is no exception.
The Bird & The Rifle is the tenth full-length album from the Grammy
Award-winning songwriter. Produced by Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton),
the album features ten original songs, including the lead track, “Wreck You,”
and McKenna’s version of her own “Humble & Kind,” which Tim McGraw recorded and
took to #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
McKenna is one of the most sought-after songwriters in the industry, having
written songs recorded by Faith Hill, Reba, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Hunter
Hayes, Keith Urban, Alison Krauss, and more.
"The ruminative "Wreck You," featuring lovely filigreed guitar work in the
vein of James Taylor, finds the narrator worrying over troubling changes in a
relationship that might be her fault. "Ultimately, we’ve all felt that: 'I'm not
trying to hurt you,'" she says." - rollingstone.com
