Tayla Lynn has the ultimate tribute to her grandmother, a woman she lovingly refers to as “Memaw.”
The latest solo endeavor branches out from Tayla’s previous work, including with the trio Stealing Angels, with Caroline Cutbirth and Jennifer Wayne.
Tayla Lynn Sings Loretta Lynn is out following a soft release, according to the Country Note.
“I can’t remember a time that I wasn’t in the wings in some town somewhere, watchin’ my Memaw [Loretta Lynn] and my Daddy [Ernest Ray Lynn] on stage” Tayla reflects in a statement. “I started singing as soon as I opened my mouth.”
Tayla recently opened up to PEOPLE about her past struggles with addiction and current commitment to sobriety, including how her grandmother was there throughout her life.
Tayla told PEOPLE of the new album honoring her legendary grandmother:
"For a long time, I tried to do something different music-wise because I believed that's what I was supposed to do…But when I let my gut start leading me and I started trusting my intuition, that's when I knew that this was the record that I was supposed to make. It was literally the easiest, most joyful experience I've ever had."
