Lexington, MA – Spectacle Management is proud to present Lori McKenna at Cary Memorial Hall on Saturday, August 3 at 8:00 pm.

A statement from Lori: “15 years ago, I released my album Bittertown, which in more ways than one brought me to my second home, Nashville, where I get to write songs with so many wonderful and talented people. Boston to Bittertown to Nashville you could say.”

To celebrate the album’s 15th anniversary, Lori returns to Cary Memorial Hall with the accompaniment of a full band for a night of heartfelt and honest country.

Tickets to Lori McKenna at Cary Memorial Hall on Saturday, August 3 at 8:00 pm are $49-59, and are on sale this Thursday at 10:00 am at www.caryhalllexington.com, or by calling 1 (800) 657- 8774.


LORI MCKENNA

Lori McKenna is at home in Stoughton, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston.

Home and the people who make it have captivated McKenna for years. “I got married at 19 and had my oldest at 20,” she says. “I didn’t grow up all the way before I started having children. I didn’t have a lot of time being an adult that was just me––I spent so much time worrying about someone else. So I do like to address how I feel about things, for sure, but I also like to think about what other people might feel, too.”

McKenna was raised in a Boston family of six children. She met her husband Gene in third grade. They have five kids. Over the last three decades, as she became a wife and mother, she has also emerged as one of the most respected, prolific singer-songwriters in popular music.

Her 2016 release The Bird and the Rifle netted three Grammy nominations, along with Americana Music Association nods––all firsts for McKenna as an artist. Then, she made history: In 2016, she became the first woman ever to win the Country Music Association’s Song of the Year two years in a row thanks to co-writing Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” and penning Tim McGraw’s no. 1 “Humble and Kind” solo. Both songs also clinched back-to-back Grammy wins for Best Country Song. In 2017, she became the Academy of Country Music’s first female Songwriter of the Year. The list of stars who have recorded McKenna gems continues to grow: Reba, Alison Krauss, Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Hunter Hayes, and others.
