Lori McKenna

This past weekend we were lucky enough to see one of my favorite singers, Lori McKenna at a great venue in Londonderry NH, Tupelo Hall. The show was great and also featured opening act Beth Woods, who did a great job.

Lori McKenna

If you haven't heard of McKenna yet, she is from Stoughton, MA. She married young and started a family and now has 5 kids. She also started writing songs in her kitchen. With encouragement from her family and friends she started going to open mike nights locally and then hit the Boston/Cambridge music scene. She came to the attention of the Howard Publishing Company who gave her music to Faith Hill to listen to. Long story short, Hill recorded several of McKenna's songs. She also ended up touring with Faith Hill and Tim McGraw last year. Tim McGraw produced her lastest CD Glamorous which many critics rate among the best country cd's of 2007.

So if you haven't heard Lori McKenna yet, head over to her website and take a listen. Make sure and listen to the lyrics as well as the music. This woman has a way with words.
