About the Author
Home and the people who make it have captivated Lori McKenna for years. Over the last three decades, as she became a wife and mother of five, she has also emerged as one of the most respected, prolific singer-songwriters in popular music. Her 2016 release The Bird and the Rifle netted three GRAMMY nominations, along with Americana Music Association nods--all firsts for McKenna as an artist. Then, she made history: In 2016, she became the first woman ever to win the Country Music Association's Song of the Year two years in a row thanks to cowriting Little Big Town's Girl Crush and penning the number one hit song Humble and Kind. Both songs also clinched back-to-back GRAMMY awards for Best Country Song. In 2017, she became the Academy of Country Music's first female Songwriter of the Year. The Tree, her much-anticipated eleventh studio album, was released on July 20, 2018, on CN Records via Thirty Tigers. Produced by Dave Cobb, The Tree, a 2019 Americana Awards Album of the Year nominee, takes one of McKenna's signature themes--family--and builds a tapestry of experiences she has lived and overheard, been told and dreamed up, to create a stunning ode to life's defining relationships.
