Amy Ray has gone country, and her scenic-route detour was not as out of the way as some fans might think.
The singer-songwriter, best known as half of the Grammy-winning Indigo Girls folk-rock duo, has produced a solo album, Goodnight Tender, which is country music in the purest — and purist – sense of the word. Recorded last spring at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, N.C., this collection of 11 originals by Ray, along with a cover penned by Heather McEntire, is scheduled for release January 21st, 2014 from Ray's Decatur-based company, Daemon Records.
