Lori McKenna, A Concert to Benefit The Nature Connection
May 28, 2011
Lori McKenna achieved great success as a songwriter, writing for Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Alison Krauss, Keith Urban and LeAnn Rimes.
The gifted singer-songwriter now brings her soothing voice to the stage as part of a 2011 tour in support of her latest album, Lorraine.
McKenna's first name is actually Lorraine. Now you know. She is named after the mother she lost when she was only seven, but whose impact on Lori's life reverberates to this day. In her sixth album, Lorraine, she considers the influence of her mother, who died at roughly the same age Lori is now, as well as her own place in relationship to her husband, family and community. It is her most personal album to date.
"Everywhere you turn, there's a touch of genius here. I am completely in love with this album. "
- Robert Oermann, Music Row Magazine
"13 perfectly crafted gems of observational insight."
- Sarah Rodman, Boston Globe
"There are so many ways for love to rupture, and so many ways for it to heal, and Lori McKenna has songs for most of them."
- Jon Caramanica, The New York Times
