    Lori McKenna's first name is actually Lorraine. Now you know. She began performing her songs in public at age 27, after she and her husband Gene already had three children. She and Gene continue to maintain a happy home in Stoughton, Massachusetts, adding two more children to their full lives. In addition to family, place has an important role in Lori's songs. She eventually became a staple of the Boston folk music scene, where she became friendly with Mary Gauthier. "We were the two old ladies in a sea of young faces," she jokes. When Gauthier picked up and left for Nashville, she brought Lori's music to the attention of her publisher. They got her music into the hands of Faith Hill, who fell hard for Lori's songs. Hill recorded three of them for her album Fireflies. Lori's way of articulating the love, pain and pathos of domestic life had a huge impact on Hill, and Hill's very public championing of Lori's music led other artists to Lori's songs. Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Alison Krauss, Keith Urban and LeAnn Rimes are among the many that have recorded her songs in recent years. http://lorimckenna.com
