Why you should care:

The leading single for alt-country artist Lydia Loveless’s latest album, “Real”, (set to release on August 19 via Bloodshot Records), revolves around a real loss in the musician’s life. According to a For the Country Record interview, the death of close friend (and guitarist for The Girls) Joey Blackheart, spurred her to pen this song.
