Lori McKenna Celebrates ‘Bittertown’ Anniversary With Re-Recorded Tunes

Lori McKenna is celebrating the 15h anniversary of her album Bittertown by releasing new acoustic versions of Bittertown’s “Bible Song” and “Stealing Kisses” July 24 on CN Records. The re-recorded songs were produced by Luke Laird and recorded at Sound Stage Studios in Nashville.

In addition to being released digitally, the songs will appear on limited edition 7” vinyl along with specialty merch which will be available for purchase at six intimate performances of the album this summer. McKenna will play shows in Washington D.C, New York, Portland, Maine, and several others through Aug. 4 in support of the new project. Tickets for the special shows go on sale this Thursday, May 23.

Bittertown was my fourth record,” said McKenna. “It came out in 2004, three days before my fifth and youngest child was born and it changed my life. Faith Hill recorded three of the songs on that record and that was my introduction to Nashville and how I found my second home. Boston to Bittertown to Nashville you could say. It was a blessing and remains a huge part of my life even now.”

July 24—Washington, DC—City Winery
July 25—New York, NY—SubCulture
July 26—East Greenwich, RI—Greenwich Odeum
August 2—Turner Falls, MA—Shea Theater Arts Center
