The album's title track is a new composition that was written by Lynn and her daughter Patsy Lynn Russell and features McEntire and Underwood. The album was co-produced by John Carter Cash, and Lynn included a version of the Carter Family's "Keep on the Sunny Side." She also recorded covers of Stephen Foster’s "Old Kentucky Home," Hank Williams’ "I Saw the Light" and the gospel standard "I Don’t Feel at Home Anymore."
"I am just so thankful to have some of my friends join me on my new album. We girl singers gotta stick together," Lynn said in a statement, via Billboard. "It’s amazing how much has happened in the 50 years since Coal Miner’s Daughter first came out and I’m extremely grateful to be given a part to play in the history of American music."
On Instagram, she added that the album "is a celebration of women." "Cant wait for ya'll to hear it!" Lynn wrote. "2021 is looking better already!"
