Lori McKenna Premieres New Song “People Get Old”
- American folk singer-songwriter Lori McKenna has released a new song “People Get Old” from her upcoming 10th studio album "The Tree".
The song was inspired by her hardworking father, who looked after six kids on his own when McKenna's mother passed.
She said of the song, "I never had a song for my dad, and I think it was probably because it's sort of too close, you know? Like, he's right there. It's almost easier to write a song for someone that isn't with us anymore."
She performed the song for the first time at Museum of The Country Music Hall of Fame on March 4, 2018.
The new album comprises of 11-track including "Happy People", which previously released by Little Big Town in 2017.
The album "The Tree" is set to be released on July 20th and is available for pre-order now.
She will kick off a tour in support of the album in June, including two stops with bluegrass icon Alison Krauss.
