Emphasis on “planning”
– nothing due until 2012.

Country/folk-tilting Allison Moorer and honky-tonkin’ Shelby
Lynne are sketching out an album which they plan to write this spring and then,
if all goes well, release next year. According to a report at Billboard.com,
Lynne said the studio collaboration from the two sisters’ 2010 tour and that
they’ll be “getting together to write songs” and just “see what happens.”
Lynne told Billboard, of the tour, “We loved it, people
loved it. It was just the two of us on two guitars. Having not written anything
yet we did each other’s songs and reached back into our childhood and grabbed a
couple of things that we grew up singing. It worked brilliantly. We both like
to tell stories and cut up and have fun and go with the flow…We don’t fight.
I know everybody would love that to be the case, but that’s not the way it is,
and I don’t see anything like that happening.”
In 2010 Lynne released two albums, Tears, Lies and Alibis and Merry
Christmas, while Moorer issued Crows.
