Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
For her first solo release in a dozen years, Loretta Lynn did everything right and wound up with the finest album of her near-40-year recording career. The songs, by a host of top-flight writers including producer Randy Scruggs, Matraca Berg, John Prine, Donnie Fritts, and Larry Cordle -- not to mention Lynn herself -- offer ample opportunity for the artist to showcase her ever-richer interpretive skills. Deep feelings of loss and longing inform the album opener, Scruggs's "On My Own Again," a song that's particularly resonant in light of the 1998 death of the artist's beloved husband, Mooney -- a devastating blow that Loretta explores in the heartbreaking, self-penned ...

Deep feelings of loss and longing inform the album opener, Scruggs's "On My Own Again," a song that's particularly resonant in light of the 1998 death of the artist's beloved husband, Mooney -- a devastating blow that Loretta explores in the heartbreaking, self-penned "I Can't Hear the Music." "Working Girl," written by Scruggs and Berg, offers a pointed bit of topical commentary about the disenfranchisement of the older woman in a world of Christinas, Britneys, and LeAnns; and there's some double-entendre fun in Cordle's "Country in My Genes." Producer Scruggs keeps the sound and instrumentation spare and rustic, with occasional discreet pop flourishes pushing the arrangements forward.
All Music Guide - Zac Johnson
The coal miner's daughter carries the traditional country torch while managing to stay current; Loretta Lynn applies tried and true American heartache with some contemporary flourishes. Still Country features the country radio hit "Country in My Genes" and the splendidly bittersweet "Table for Two Party of One."

    Still the BEST

    This is what country music is all about: love, loss, and taking what life gives you only to give back! All the other women (and men for that matter) of country music only wish they could have a career as enduring as Loretta Lynn's. On 'Still Country' each song is 1000% Loretta Lynn, and anyone who knows Loretta knows those are real tears in the song, "I Can't Hear The Music" and not some insincere attempt at emotion. You just want to wrap your arms around her. She lives what she sings. You will not be diappointed or suprised that Loretta is still the Queen of Country Music.

    Four Decades And Going Strong

    For forty-two years Loretta Lynn has been making music for fans the world over...I bet way out in the far far galaxy she has fans who are waiting for their planet to be added to her almost non-stop tour. This CD is Loretta's return to recording new material and is nothing short of phenominal. You can hear the personalization applied to "On My Own Again." They say that her music applies to women...I say that it represents all who love and have been loved. Please buy this CD...you will never stop playing it!!
