Still Woman Enough
The 88-year-old country icon has created a loving tribute to herself that spans generations, proving there's still vitality and relevance in her work.
Loretta Lynn is country music incarnate, and that’s not even a point worth arguing. Her 50th studio album, Still Woman Enough, marks her first new project since 2016’s Full Circle, which trafficked heavily in the traditional and takes a similar approach: part time-capsule, part declaration of her legacy, and a little bit of “I ain’t goin’ nowhere!” attitude. This time, she’s brought some younger friends along for the ride and declared this record a “celebration of women in country music.”
Still Woman Enough is a pleasant, nostalgic, occasionally brilliant collection that fits neatly into the country legend’s catalog and introduces her to younger fans who love Margo Price and Kacey Musgraves but haven’t yet found their way back to Lynn and Kitty Wells.
