Full Circle (Sony Legacy)

Full Circle pulls from the Appalachian folk songs and Gospel music she learned as a young girl; from new renditions of her classic hits and timeless country standards; and from a handful of brand new songs written specifically for the project. Noteworthy tracks include her gorgeous duet with Willie Nelson, “Lay Me Down,” and “Everything It Takes” — a stunning collaboration with iconic singer-songwriter Elvis Costello. However, the most poignant moment on the release is her updated take on “Whispering Sea,” the first song she ever wrote and recorded. At 84, Loretta Lynn’s voice has never sounded more powerful and soulful than it does today. To revisit Loretta Lynn’s expansive musical catalog, visit her official site at lorettalynn.com.
