Listen to country piano music from singer-songwriter Lori McKenna on her 10th album The Bird & The Rifle that was just released today.
She has written many hits for other artists, such as Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Alison Krauss, Faith Hill, Reba, Little Big Town, and more. She wrote Fireflies for Faith Hill on her #1 album about ten years ago, Girl Crush for Little Big Town which won her a 2016 Grammy and 2015 CMA award, and the recent #1 single Humble & Kind for Tim McGraw, which is also included in this album.
She is appearing in her Wreck You Tour now through October, including One World Theatre here in Austin on October 13th. Earlier, I saw her perform at Gruene Hall in Wimberley, which is Texas’ oldest dance hall. She has some background about the album in the biography on her web site. There’s a good Pitchfork review by Stephen M. Deusner.
The Bird & The Rifle (2016) – 10 songs, 37 min
Humble & Kind – Live at Ryman Auditorium, Grand Ole Opry, Nashville – 4 min 18 sec
