If you are anything like me than you already know the amazing musical stylings of Erin Enderlin. She is one of the most iconic song writers of our time, having written songs for huge artists like Alan Jackson (“Monday Morning Church”) and Luke Bryan (“You Don’t know Jack”). Erin is the light we need in country music to bring us back to the honest heart wrenching music that made us all fall in love with music when we were small.
Erin has broken the mold and brought her songwriting genius to her new album ‘Whiskeytown Crier.’ It is a powerhouse album produced by Jamey Johnson and also features Chris Stapleton, Randy Houser and Ricky Skaggs. Her vocals take me back to the days of Tammy Lynette and Loretta Lynn. Back to a time when a female singer could make feel the pain in their heart over a break up or the strength of woman holding her head up to make it thru any bad day.
On her first major tour, the Arkansas native was a featured artist on the Willie Nelson Country Throwdown and since then has opened shows for artists such as Marty Stuart, Kip Moore, and Terri Clark, performing on stages such as the famed Ryman Auditorium and Billy Bob’s Texas. Erin saw a lifetime dream come true by making her Grand Ole Opry debut September 6, 2013.
Erin was quoted saying “Music really saved me. It’s such a great healer. With music, you can just get lost––get out of your own head for three minutes.”
I believe in a way Erin Enderlin is our own Country Music Jesus leading us thru life thru her songs and her sweet vocals, even though we don’t realize it’s her song on the radio. My advice is to head over to erinenderlin.com and pick up this album as soon as you can. I promise you will not be disappointed.
