Overview

For her first solo release in a dozen years, Loretta Lynn did everything right and wound up with the finest album of her near-40-year recording career. The songs, by a host of top-flight writers including producer Randy Scruggs, Matraca Berg, John Prine, Donnie Fritts, and Larry Cordle -- not to mention Lynn herself -- offer ample opportunity for the artist to showcase her ever-richer interpretive skills. Deep feelings of loss and longing inform the album opener, Scruggs's "On My Own Again," a song that's particularly resonant in light of the 1998 death of the artist's beloved husband, Mooney -- a devastating blow that Loretta explores in the heartbreaking, self-penned "I Can't Hear the Music." "Working Girl," written by Scruggs and Berg, offers a pointed bit of topical commentary about the disenfranchisement of the older woman in a world of Christinas, Britneys, and LeAnns; and there's some double-entendre fun in Cordle's "Country in My Genes." Producer Scruggs keeps the sound and instrumentation spare and rustic, with occasional discreet pop flourishes pushing the arrangements forward.
