NY Times, NPR Music + More Praise Lera Lynn Duets Album, Lynn Adds New Tour Dates, Including Shows With Shovels & Rope

Playing Americana Fest In Nashville In September

July 24, 2018 – Lera Lynn released her new duets album Plays Well With Others on Single Lock Records last month to critical acclaim, and she continues to add tour dates around the new release. A new round of dates begins this week, and Lynn has added dates with Shovels & Rope in August. She’ll play Americana Fest in Nashville in September before another round of U.S. dates, and then Lynn will head to Russia and Europe for a tour in November and December.

Plays Well With Others is a unique duets album — one in which nearly every song is completely co-written and co-sung. Peter Bradley Adams, John Paul White, Dylan LeBlanc, Andrew Combs, Rodney Crowell, Shovels & Rope, JD McPherson, and Nicole Atkins all make appearances, working alongside Lera not only to perform these songs, but to create them, too

Here’s what we’ve been hearing about Lera and the release:

"Lynn has long been a singular voice in roots music. Now, with a few new voices in the mix, hers somehow stands out more than ever."

-NPR Music         


“[‘Breakdown’ is] brisk, up-tempo and ruthless.”

-New York Times


"Her gorgeous Emmylou-like voice which wraps itself around the varied tone of her collaborators."



“"Every tune is a keeper, and like the best artists, she leaves you wanting more."

-American Songwriter


“Lera Lynn dropped a duets album that is worth obsessing over.”



"On Plays Well With Others, Lynn and her collaborators are obviously enjoying themselves immensely. Fortunately for the rest of us, they brought some excellent new songs into the world in the process."

-No Depression


"Much like her previous efforts, Lynn’s fourth studio full-length is mounted with heightened tension and emotionally-charged exchanges. You hear these touchstones of familiarity throughout while still finding Lynn expand and explore new found territory—much of which can be attributed to the all-star cast of rootsy Americana acts she enlists on the darkly intimate and compelling Plays Well With Others."

-Wide Open Country


“The album covers a lot of territory, but it’s all lashed together by Lynn’s knack for melding her beautiful vocals with those of a duet partner.”

-Nashville Scene


“She remains the quiet center of gravity throughout the record thanks to her voice.”

-All Music      


“A stunner of a new record.”

-Brightest Young Things
