LERA LYNN PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS

With three solo albums to her credit, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Lera Lynn brings this new release that more than speaks to the power of collaboration. She’s collaborated before on songwriting with T-Bone Burnett and Rosanne Cash, and here, Lynn has purposefully taken collaboration to the nth degree. On Plays Well, Lynn, teams up with eight different duet partners and seven co-writers on this stunning array of duets.

Almost every song is co-written and co-sung. Peter Bradley Adams, Dylan LeBlanc, Andrew Combs, Rodney Crowell, Shovels & Rope, JD McPherson, and Nicole Atkins all make appearances, and worked alongside Lynn to create and perform the songs.

John Paul White features on two numbers – a resurgence of the Conway Twitty classic ‘Almost Persuaded’ and new original ‘Lose Myself’ which is exquisitely pensive and brooding. Lynn and White beautifully wrap their voices around each other with sadness and resignation, trading verses and exchanging lines, and combining in beguiling harmony.
