'You Don't Know Me' includes first recording with sister Loretta Lynn

Grammy, AMA, ACM and CMA award-winning country music singer and Grand Ole Opry member Crystal Gayle released her first new album in nearly 16 years. “You Don’t Know Me” includes the first-ever recording with her sister, the legendary Loretta Lynn.

Available everywhere, the new album is released by Southpaw Musical Productions, and distributed by BFD in partnership with The Orchard.

Co-produced, recorded and mixed by Gayle’s son, Christos Gatzimos, “You Don’t Know Me” has already received critical acclaim. Billboard Magazine premiered "Put It Off Until Tomorrow," the song that finally brought Gayle together with sisters Peggy Sue Wright and Lynn, on a highly anticipated, first-ever recorded trio of them singing together.

"Loretta and Peggy made this album very special by singing ‘Put It Off Until Tomorrow’ with me,” Gayle said. “It is a song that we have performed together throughout the years. This is the one and only trio performance on record. We’ve done the Boston Pops together. We performed together in Lake Tahoe and Reno and a few things like that. But we’ve never actually made a record together.

“Peggy Sue still comes out on the road with me, singing backup harmonies. I recorded the track, then Patsy, Loretta’s daughter, asked her to sing on my album. Loretta is such an incredible singer. She got through the song right away and then went, ‘What’s next?’ We should have recorded the whole album together!"
