Presley, known to fans as "Holler Annie" from the Platinum selling trio Pistol Annies (Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe), wrote 5 of the 12 tracks, and co-wrote the remaining 7. Presley co-produced with husband, Jordan Powell.

"It's like my autobiography - each of the songs is a chapter of my life. I've literally lived every minute of this record," said the coal miner's daughter hailing from Beauty, Ky. "My mama ain't none too happy about me spreading my business around but I have to do it. It's the experience of my life from birth to now."

Vocalists include Patty Loveless, Chris Stapleton, Emily Saliers (Indigo Girls) and her father, Jimmy Presley, who opens the title track with a personal narrative.

Musicians included Keith Gattis and Audley Freed on guitars, mandolins, and dobros; Josh Grange on pedal steel; Fred Elrtingham on drums; Grammy winner Glenn Worff and Motown-influenced Aden Bubeck on bass (both upright and electric); David Henry on cello and strings; and John Henry Trinko on organ and piano.

Presley will tour behind the album. "Playing live is the ultimate connection for a songwriter," she said, "you get to see firsthand how your songs affect someone and I love it."
