Lynn drops "I Fall to Pieces"

Friday, April 3, 2020 – Loretta Lynn released a newly recorded version of "I Fall to Pieces," the song recorded by Patsy Cline, today

The song is in celebration of the forthcoming book, "Me & Patsy Kickin' Up Dust," on Grand Central Publishing. Available on April 7, the book written by Lynn with her daughter, Patsy Lynn Russell, presents the portrait of a friendship.

"I Fall to Pieces," one of Cline's most-recognizable hit singles, is available via all digital service providers through Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. The song was produced and recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tenn. by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash, who produced Lynn's Grammy-nominated album, "Full Circle" as well as her last studio album "Wouldn't It Be Great."

In 1961, Cline was nearly killed in a car accident and while in the hospital, Lynn appeared on Midnight Jamboree, a radio show that aired after the Grand Ole Opry, and dedicated a performance of Cline's hit "I Fall to Pieces" to the ailing singer. Upon hearing Lynn, Cline had her husband arrange for the fellow singer to pay a visit, and the two quickly became best friends.

CD review - Full Circle Loretta Lynn shows no signs of slowing down at 83. "Full Circle" is her first album since her extremely well-received Jack White-produced "Van Lear Rose," a 2004 masterpiece. Some of the 14 songs on "Full Circle" are new recordings, while a few ("Fist City," "Secret Love" and "Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven") are new versions. Others are old songs ("Black Jack David, "Always On My Mind," "In the Pines") that Lynn ...
Johnny Cash had his Rick Rubin, and it seems that Loretta Lynn has hers in the form of Jack White of the White Stripes. And that means an album of lots of excellent music with all 13 songs penned by Lynn. Lynn looks to her family past and her own career for inspiration for several songs (the title track, "High on a Mountain Top" about working the coal mines and the "folks know what they've got" and "Story of My Life"). She also isn't afraid to tell off a woman who interfered with her family's ...
