THE LINER NOTES
Many singers who reach a certain level of popularity will tell you that they’re more comfortable on stage than in the studio… or the reverse. It’s the rare entertainer who feels equally at home and whose artistry is equally as memorable and inspiring in both environments.
Lynn Anderson was just such an entertainer.
Released in May of ninety-nine, ‘Live at Billy Bob’s Texas’ stands as perhaps the single best example of the range, length and breadth of Lynn Anderson’s talent and artistry. Moreover, it is a view into the musical heart of this legendary entertainer; into many of the songs that were the soundtracks of her own life. And the choices paint a portrait of an artist with musical roots running far deeper than many gave her credit for.
A seventeen song set with one of the most accomplished bands in the business backing her, ‘Live At Billy Bob’s Texas’ was the thirtieth album of Lynn’s career, and her only live release. On stage non-stop for nearly an hour, she deftly weaves her biggest hits together with threads from folk, rock, blues and country, creating a musical tapestry of songs in a voice that is perhaps clearer, cleaner, and more powerful than it ever has been.
If you could only buy one Lynn Anderson record, this live set is it. A stunning, breathtaking fifty-minute musical portrait of an entertainer at the peak of her artistry.
‘Live at Billy Bob’s Texas’. A classic.
