In the paradigm of country music, there are only a few artists that could be described as queens. Of the handful of those, one who has always embodies the strength and songwriting prowess in the genre is Loretta Lynn. Bold, ahead of her time and a true pioneer, Lynn is responsible for the careers of so many who came after her due to her persistence and her unparalleled songwriting. With her new album Still Woman Enough coming in mid-March, her latest single is one you should know. While “One’s On The Way” was originally released in 1972 on the album by the same name, Lynn has reworked it for her new album with a feature from Margo Price. Below you can experience its beaurty as well as a feature from Price explaining her decision to sing the track.
The pure country soul that begins the song is so dulcet and southern. With Lynn opening the track before Price comes in on the chorus, the magic of the song’s power flows through and through. Price’s voice meshes perfectly with Lynn’s here forcing you to rethink how you heard the original version. Lynn still sings with grace and power while Price adds a nice new touch to the classic song. It’s a pairing that makes the song better, if you can even imagine that.
The new version of “One’s On The Way” can be heard above or wherever you stream music. Still Woman Enough is available to preorder in bundles and various formats from Legacy Recordings ahead of its March 19 release.
