Lynn Anderson: Cry Lynn Anderson: Listen To A Country Song

 

Through Legacy Recordings (the catalog division of Sony Entertainment)
Nashville, Tenn. – For the first time since her passing in 2015, Lynn Anderson fans now have access to two of her iconic albums that have just been re-released to all digital platforms through Legacy Recordings. Anderson’s digitally remastered album ‘Cry,’ was released on March 6th and ‘Listen To A Country Song’ will be released on March 20. The fan-favorite ‘Top Of The World’ has been confirmed for release, with a street date still to be determined.

Ranked among the most admired and trailblazing entertainers in America throughout her six-decade career, Lynn Anderson’s sparkling vocals brought a new level of sophistication and glamour to country music. Her groundbreaking pop-country sound helped her become one of the first female country artists to achieve mass crossover appeal. Many firsts were achieved throughout Anderson’s career; some of which broke social barriers. Anderson was the first female country singer to perform on The Tonight Show, first to headline and sell out Madison Square Garden and the first female to win an American Music Award. Lynn repeatedly delivered chart topping songs, such as “(I Never Promised You A) Rose Garden,” and was named Billboard’s Artist of the Decade for the 70s. Too timeless to be forgotten, events and celebrations are in the works to honor the classic hits and sweet southern personality that Anderson engraved in hearts across the world.

“Lynn Anderson was an icon to millions around the world, but to me she was mom,” says daughter, Lisa Sutton. “It is so exciting to have two of her classic albums re-released through Sony Legacy during a time when we need it the most. Until now, they were only available on vinyl. This is a wonderful way for old fans and new ones to come together through music. Just stay tuned, because this is only the beginning!”
