"when the choir sang hallelujah..I ran as fast as I could"

Faith Hill has recorded three of Lori McKenna's songs, " If You Ask," "Stealing Kisses," and "Fireflies." by mid sept it has sold nearly 700,000 copies. The two were on Oprah recently. Many thought Lori was star struck, of Oprah and/or Fath. Scott Alarick of the Boston Globe story syas...."My distinct impression was that if either of them is starstruck, it's Faith. She absolutely adores Lori and her music. Having known Lori for 10 years, and having been the first music writer to sing her praises in print, let me suggest she is not "starstruck," but simply humble and grateful.

Warners has signed McKenna, and on September 27, rereleases her last CD, "Bittertown," originally put out on the small local label Signature
Sounds. She's also taped a segment with Hill for her NBC Thanksgiving Eve special.
Hill says, "I don't remember ever being impacted by a songwriter the way I was with her. There's no formula to the writing, and yet it's
masterful, with a pureness that is completely unaffected. Her songs are such a great combination of that depth and realness that goes into folk
music, but not so far away from what my fans will appreciate."

Lori Mckenna is now  37, a mom of five. and been playing coal coffeehouses for a decade. Family comes first, career second.

Boston Globe September 26. By Scott Alarik
"Matt Smith is the manager of Club Passim, the legendary Harvard Square coffeehouse that has helped launch local folk stars from Joan Baez to Patty Larkin to Dar Williams. He says he was immediately struck by how unguarded and yet "achingly beautiful" McKenna's songs were. She quickly became one of the most popular headliners in the small but thriving Boston folk scene.
    "Her fast rise didn't surprise me, so much as make me feel good about the process," Smith says. "This wasn't happening to someone who was
a better marketer, or a better hustler. She's not sitting there  calculating, 'How am I going to create the right effect, how am I going to
reach people?' The songs are just who she is, without any flashy bells and whistles - and that's why they reach people."
     McKenna says, "I'm sort of obsessed with the way motherhood is supposed to be your biggest joy, and it is for most moms. But it's
difficult, too; it isn't what you expect....So many of us get stuck thinking we're just passengers."
