ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A gathering of friends accompanied singer-songwriter Lyn Hacker in the recording studio - weaving her original compositions into a warm blanket that wraps the listener in a geniune appreciation of country roots through songs written from the heart. Elements of reflection are penned into lyrical thoughts as each song captures the specific mood Hacker wants to share with her audience. Her down to earth writing and warm vocals form an honest quality that is lacking in much of today's mainstream music. There's a wealth of wisdom written into each of Hacker's gentle stories. You'll come across several gems as you delve into this impressive 12 song disc - neatly tucked inside an inspired package. "Springtime In Kentucky" won the American Songwriter Magazine award. Musicians that joined Lyn Hacker in the studio include regional favorites such as Jesse Pena, Nick Stump, Tim Lake, Brad Becker, Danny Cecil, and others. "Girl Who Loves Horses" - a pause that refreshes through genuine songs written from the heart - (c) 2010 Mark's Online Music Source"

"Your lyrics work for me. What comes through...is complete sincerity and love for Kentucky -- both the Bluegrass and the mountains. There is a poetic sensibility at work in your lyrics, an ability to convert experience into images that seduce, rather than mystify, the listener. -- Richard Taylor, KY Poet Laureate 1999-2001.


I have been surrounded by music all of my life, and grew up awash in the songs of the Carter Family, Osborne Brothers, Ralph Stanley, Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, Dolly Parton and others of that generation. Although my parents were born in the hills of Kentucky, I grew up in a Lexington suburb, and as such was influenced also by the popular music of the area.

My first experience with writing songs came from listening to my father who whistled tunes he had written while he worked in the garden and around the farm. The thought that I could write down the stories of my life became intoxicating to me.

This album was a lot of work. I purposely chose to use musicians in my area, almost all of whom are native Kentuckians and have been playing this music all of their lives. The CD proudly features the following musicians: Art Mize, Dr. Tim Lake, Jesse Pena, Genie Sherman Walker, RE Otherson, Danny Cecil, David Miller, Tom Adler, Noah Adler, Marianne Sherman and Brad Becker.
