Forbes Says the 14-song Collection "Honors Country Music at Its Very Roots"
Features Performance by Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Terri Clark, Cody Jinks and Dillon Carmichael
With her remarkable aptitude for crafting music with character-driven storylines, singer/songwriter Erin Enderlin returns with Faulkner County, her first full-length album since 2017.
Forbes shares, "Every song...honors country music at its very roots." Praising Enderlin's vocals and songwriting prowess on the new album they continue, "It shines through her soulful voice, the fiddle and ever-present steel guitar in the background, and the lyrics sharing stories of heartache, loss, desperation, and hope." Stream and download the new album HERE.
Produced by Jim “Moose” Brown and Jamey Johnson, Faulkner County cements 2019 as a red-letter year for Enderlin. The 14-track LP is a masterful ramble through lonely barroom corners and bedrooms, with story after story delivered by Enderlin. A stellar supporting cast including Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Terri Clark, Cody Jinks, Dillon Carmichael and others poured harmonies and soul into the vivid collection, sounding like kindred spirits and close friends making music together for the sheer joy of it.
Faulkner County arrives on the heels of the growing anticipation generated through a series of digital EPs Enderlin released earlier this year. Those EPs, released roughly in eight week intervals, garnered significant traction in the digital music space and led to Enderlin’s first significant playlisting on Spotify (Nashville Stripped, Next From Nashville, Wild Country), Apple Music (Country Roads, Speaking Easy) and Amazon Music (Fresh Folk & Americana).
Enderlin’s fall has been defined by exciting career firsts and incredible momentum. After sold-out shows in her first-ever UK tour, she returned to Nashville to showcase at AMERICANAFEST. She’ll close out 2019 having played more than 100 shows. In June, she took home three trophies at the Arkansas Country Music Awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. All the while, Enderlin’s success as a songwriter persisted as musical heroes turned to her for songs. Reba McEntire, Terri Clark, Rodney Crowell, Rhonda Vincent and more all recorded Enderlin-penned gems in 2019.
Enderlin will celebrate the release of Faulkner County today in Nashville with an album signing and acoustic performance at The Ernest Tubb Record Shop from 3:30-5:00 p.m., as well as a performance at The Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman for both the 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. showtimes.

About Erin Enderlin
Erin Enderlin has a way of turning a song or even just a thought into an outstretched hand to the lonely or ashamed. Released November 1, 2019, her new album Faulkner County channels that empathy into 14 story songs. Named a member of the 2018 CMT “Next Women of Country” class, Enderlin is the most-awarded Arkansas Country Music Awards recipient to date. With the release of 2017’s Whiskeytown Crier and a series of four digital EPs in 2019, she cemented her place at the forefront of new artists rooted in country’s rich history. Already a go-to writer for country stars, Enderlin has penned Alan Jackson’s “Monday Morning Church,” Lee Ann Womack’s “Last Call,” Luke Bryan’s “You Don’t Know Jack,” and a host of other songs for Randy Travis, Reba McEntire, Terri Clark, Rodney Crowell, Whisperin’ Bill Anderson, Rhonda Vincent, Joey+Rory, and more.
