Loretta Lynn Has A New Song ‘Wouldn’t It Be Great’

Country music legend Loretta Lynn has released the title track from her upcoming album ‘Wouldn’t It Be Good’.

‘Wouldn’t It Be Good’ was recorded at Cash Cabin Studio with Johnny Cash’s son John Carter Cash and Loretta’s daughter Patsy Lynn Russell.

The title track is the last song 86-year old Loretta wrote for her late husband. “Well,” Loretta observes, “my husband liked to drink a lot and that’s where that song comes from… ‘Say you love me just one time, with a sober mind’… I always liked that song but I never liked to sing it around Doo.”

“That song just always meant so much to me,” continues their daughter (and album co-producer) Patsy Lynn Russell, “because of the lyrics, you know, ‘when my fancy lace couldn’t turn your face,’ it was just so powerful and was a song that needed to be recorded for this album with Loretta. It shows just how masterful my mom is with writing down her feelings.”

‘Wouldn’t It Be Great’ will be released on 28 September 2018.
