As writer Holly Gleason's fine liner essay attests, Loveless has long been one of country music's gentry artists (a genuine lineage holder to the tradition). Having begun her professional career as a songwriter at the age of 14, at 51 she's a seasoned veteran with an authentic story -- raised in a holler by a coal-mining father, she began singing with her brother at the age of 12. These 14 songs, chosen from hundreds and produced by her celebrated husband, Emory Gordy, Jr., are all from the canon and undisputed classics of the repertoire.
