Erin Enderlin is releasing a new six-song EP, Barroom Mirrors, available Oct. 15.
The independent project features collaborations with 4x Grammy award winner Rosanne Cash, along with “If There Weren’t So Many Damn Songs,” with Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member Terri Clark. The fiddle and steel-soaked track is available everywhere now.
“I wrote ‘If There Weren’t So Many Damn Songs’ with my buddy Kayla Ray,” shares Enderlin. “Last year, Kayla and I had both been a little blocked writing wise, so one week we challenged each other to write a song and send them in by Sunday. Kayla had written a little different version of this song and I absolutely loved it.” She continues, “I’d been wanting to do something with Terri–she’s a big influence of mine and I’m proud to call her a friend, and this song reminded me of a game she likes to play where she becomes a human jukebox, playing about any country artist you can imagine. It was so damn cool getting to record this with her.”
Enderlin will perform at 3rd and Lindsley on Oct. 13 during their Wildheart Wednesdays series, featuring opening acts and frequent cowriters, Ray and Ben Chapman. She will also make an appearance at the Grand Ole Opry on release day, Oct. 15.
The Arkansas-native released her full-length album Faulkner County in November 2019 to critical acclaim, later earning the No. 17 spot on Rolling Stone’s 40 Best Country And Americana Albums of 2019.
