– Loretta Lynn signed a deal with Sony Legacy, it was announced today.
The new agreement covers "several albums of new material," produced by Patsy L Russell, Lyunn's daughter, and John Carter Cash, recorded over the past seven years at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tenn., according to a press release.
The first title is slated for release in 2015 and will be the artist's first collection of new recordings since "Van Lear Rose," her 2004 collaboration with Jack White.
Since 2007, Lynn, Russell and Cash have been working together at the Cash Cabin Studio on a project that explores Lynn's musical history, from the Appalachian folk songs and gospel music she learned as a child, to new interpretations of her classic hits and country standards, to songs newly-written for the project. Drawing inspiration from personal memories and connections to American music, Lynn's new recordings "capture the essence of these songs in intimate new performances, the way they might've sounded growing up in the 1930's and 40's in Butchers Hollow, Ky.," the press release said.
Lynn appeared on the Country Music Awards last night, signing "You're Looking at Country" with Kacey Musgraves.
