Betty Swain Project

(2013) Produced 12 Songs

Betty Swain, an 85-year-old country singer, rummaged through her cedar chest and discovered lyrics she had written nearly a half-century ago. A group of Raleigh, NC based musicians helped her realize a lifelong dream weeks before her death by performing the songs for her at a family picnic in 2011. In 2013 the Betty Swain Project traveled to The Parlor Studios on Nashville’s Music Row where Lynn Anderson, Kim Parent, Siobahn Magnus, Loni Rose, Taylor Watson, and a cast of Nashville’s finest carried Betty Swain’s dream a step further in recording sessions that would lead to the summer-2013 release of the Betty Swain Project album.
