Lori Yates - Sweetheart Of The Valley
In her bio, Lori Yates says she has "met Johnny Cash, hung out with Tammy Wynette, wrote with Guy Clark, jammed with Jerry Jeff Walker, partied with Harlan Howard, recorded with Greg Allman and ate jelly beans with Roy Acuff." She has been entrenched in the music scene for three decades or so and she's seen the trends in country music come and go. The impression you get from Sweetheart of the Valley is that Lori Yates is no longer concerned about making a splash, nor is she concerned about riding some current of wave in the music industry. This seventh album of hers shows a confidence to speak with her own voice and create soundscapes that reflect her mind.
I'm adding "See Who I Am," "Ghost Of Josephine," "Laugh Til We Cry," and "Trouble In The Country" to rotation.
