Loretta Lynn- Wouldn't it be Great

 

More than 15 months after suffering a stroke in May 2017, Loretta Lynn has announced plans to release her new studio album, "Wouldn't It Be Great," on Sept. 28. The album was originally slated to drop in August 2017, but Loretta's recovery rightfully took priority.

"This new record means so much to me, but this last year I had to focus on my health and I decided to hold up the release," said Loretta. "I'm feelin' good and look forward to it comin' out. It was really important to me to be a part of it being released and I'm excited to celebrate with everybody."

All of the tunes on the new 13-song offering were penned or co-penned by Loretta.

The album features new songs alongside newly recorded renditions of past compositions.
