Giveaway Info

Lori McKenna is an American folk, Americana, and country music singer and songwriter. She won the Grammy for Best Country Song for co-writing "Girl Crush" performed by Little Big Town and again for "Humble and Kind" performed by Tim McGraw. She grew up in Massachusetts in a musical household and began performing her songs in public at 27. Her and her husband Gene continue to live in Stoughton, Massachusetts as she's become a staple of the Boston folk music scene. Working with many artists, her songs have been performed by Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, and LeAnn Rimes.

The Tree is full of songs that lead up to family life, declarations of love, and what it's like when those things fall apart. The opening track "A Mother Never Rests" is a simple song that captures the complexity of motherhood with lyrics like "Here's what I know / Even when I'm sleeping I'm still dreaming all about you." She covers a lifetime of happiness and hurt in "People get Old" that focuses on the youth, aging, and the constantly changing relationship between parents and their children. This album is proof that McKenna is a pillar of songwriting that gets better every day.
