Congrats to the fabulous Loretta Lynn on the release of her new album, Wouldn't It Be Great,
the second in a series of recordings produced by John Carter Cash and Lynn's daughter Patsy Lynn Russell featuring an all-star cast of Nashville's finest including bassist and Epi fan Dennis Crouch, multi-instrumentalist Sean Camp, and Sam Bush. Check out the new video for "Ain't No Time To Go" as well as Lynn's appearance on NBCs Today Show
with Jenna Bush recorded live at the Ernest Tubb Record Store in downtown Nashville where Lynn was a frequent guest on the Midnight Jamboree
with Tubb throughout the 1960s.
"The reason this album is so important to me, it was the last song I sang to my husband that I wrote before he passed away," said Lynn. "I write about my life. Every song I've written."
Loretta Lynn has been an Epiphone fan since her first 45s for Zero Records like "Whispering Sea" and "I'm A Honky Tonk Girl." And though she would say the one and only 'Queen of Country
' is Kitty Wells, there are few country artists--men or women--who have made more superb records of original music than Lynn. We feel lucky that her Epiphone Excellente has been along for the ride for more than 50 years. Check out the new album and all the classics, too. And look for more good news from Loretta Lynn and Epiphone soon.
