THE LINER NOTES
Released on the Center Sound label less than two months before her death, ‘Bridges’ is the culmination of one of the most brilliant, volatile, and creative lives in popular entertainment. The first, and only inspirational album in her long and illustrious career, it is a testament, in every sense of the word, to the underlying importance of faith in Lynn Anderson’s life and work, and to the slings and arrows, joys and sorrows, trophies and scars she’d won, lost, and endured in both.
Produced by veteran Bil VornDick, ‘Bridges’ features classic Gospel harmony help from The Oak Ridge Boys and The Martins, and an A-Team of Nashville’s most versatile and gifted studio players, surrounding Lynn with some of the most well-crafted, understated and tailored arrangements ever written for this legendary entertainer.
Anchored by her Gospel reworking of the Dobie Gray classic, ‘Drift Away’, this luminous twelve-song set reminds us of the sheer compelling power of Lynn Anderson’s voice, and the depth of her attachment to every song she brought that voice to. In a collection of songs that read like stories from her own life, she convinces you with every breath and word--every line and verse—that she’s lived through what she’s singing. That she knows there are bridges that have burned behind her… but there are bridges she has yet to cross.
‘Bridges’ -- the final studio LP from a genuine American legend: Lynn Anderson.
