Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson will release her debut solo album in early 2021, and now she’s now shared the lead single, a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Rising”.

Now with the coronavirus pandemic, Wilson has brought a fresh take on “The Rising.” In a statement, Wilson
explained her reasons for covering the song: “I wanted to make something uplifting and aspirational for those of us who are suffering with all this sickness and loss. I hope this song can help lift our spirits.”

Loretta in a press release: “I will never forget the morning Dolittle and I pulled in and parked in front of the Ryman Auditorium for the very first time. It was 1960 and I had a No. 14 record on the charts called ‘I’m A Honky Tonk Girl.’ My dream, like thousands of other singers, was just to sing on the Grand Ole Opry. Being a member of the Grand Ole Opry has been one of the greatest honors of my life. For many years I’ve stood on the stage of the Ryman and there’s no place like it. Now they’re unveiling this statue in my honor. It’s like I’m going to get to be there for many more years to come. It means so much to have the statue and to be a part of all of these wonderful artists. One day soon I’m gonna get to come up there and see it for myself. But for today I want to say thank you and I love each and every one of you for thinking of me.”
Loretta celebrated her 88th birthday in April and is one of the most decorated artists of all time, including induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, as well as receiving the CMA Entertainer of the Year Award, Kennedy Center Honors, Presidential Medal of Freedom, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and more.
