This was Nikki Lane‘s third studio album and her second on New West. Not sure where she first got called the “First Lady of Outlaw Country” (or whether she calls herself that), but love this album.

Seven hundred thousand rednecks / That’s what it takes to get to the top / Seven hundred thousand rednecks / No, there ain’t no one gonna make me stop

Lane also runs a store in Nashville (and online): High Class Hillbilly and may be the only one I know in outlaw country who started as a fashion designer.
