In this twenty-ninth release of her career, Lynn returns to the music of her roots, and its influence on her is evident in virtually every groove. A ten-song collection that balances a short stack of contemporary tracks with some of Western music’s most iconic melodies. Patsy Montana’s seminal "I Want to Be a Cowboy's Sweetheart" leads off the set at a gallop, a vibrant and rich vocal from Lynn transforming the bucolic, yodel-laced standard into a line dancers dream that drives across the melody like a stampede. And the high lonesome feel of the traditional lament, “Red River Valley” is upgraded to a fiddles-strung two-step that would make Bob Wills proud. Then, moody and intimate, she takes on Glen Frey’s “Desperado”, and conjures up the image of a woman who has been there…done that; who’s held love in her hand, and let it go.
A rare and important chapter in the musical legacy of Lynn Anderson: cowboy’s sweetheart.
