Lori McKenna will appear in concert at the Cotuit Center for the Arts on Thursday, April 25, 2019, at 7:30 p.m. McKenna is a Grammy award-winning artist.

Home, and the people who make it, have captivated Lori McKenna for years. Over the last three decades, as she became a wife and mother of five, she has also emerged as one of the most respected, prolific singer-songwriters in popular music. Her 2016 release The Bird and the Rifle netted three Grammy nominations, along with Americana Music Association nods––all firsts for McKenna as an artist. Then, she made history: In 2016, she became the first woman ever to win the Country Music Association’s Song of the Year two years in a row thanks to co-writing Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” and penning Tim McGraw’s no. 1 “Humble and Kind” solo. Both songs also clinched back-to-back Grammy wins for Best Country Song. In 2017, she became the Academy of Country Music’s first female Songwriter of the Year. McKenna’s much-anticipated eleventh studio album, produced by Dave Cobb, takes one of McKenna’s signature themes––family––and builds a tapestry of experiences she has lived and overheard, been told and dreamed up, to create a stunning ode to life’s defining relationships.

“Her voice can cut like a knife’s edge, swoop like a fiddle, or shrink to a plaintive whisper,” wrote the Boston Globe. “Her songs will break your heart, compel you to hug your children, or remind you that time passes, and fast.”

Her music is a mix of sad and happy songs, of darkness and light. “I am drawn to sad songs,” she writes. “I want to make you feel something. I don’t necessarily want you to see it coming.”
