Each, in their own way, recalls the musical spirit and individuality of Loretta Lynn. Jewell is the more traditional of the two, breathing fresh air into a classic country sound, while Loveless gives a feisty rock edge to her music.
Now here’s the best part. We’ve got signed cds from both these remarkable artists for one lucky Twangville reader. To win, just post a comment with your favorite release so far this year. A winner will be selected at random when the contest ends on Saturday, 17 September 2011 at midnight ET.**
While you consider your selection, here are a couple of videos from Jewell and Loveless. And look close at Jewell’s guitar and you’ll see that it is signed by, you guessed it, Loretta Lynn.
