What's better than a bunch of country artists performing stellar renditions of tunes by none other than Sir Paul McCartney? Well--if that former sentence didn't stop you in your tracks (sounds pretty intriguing, right?)--what is actually better is that these renditions actually exist, you can purchase an album of them today, and they benefit a worthy cause.
McCartney, whose late wife Linda was a victim of cancer, gave his "wholehearted blessing" to Let Us In Nashville--A Tribute To Linda McCartney--which features such artists as SHeDAISY, Chuck Wicks, Steel Magnolia, Phil Vassar, Ricky Skaggs, and Jeff Daniels, among others. Each artist chose a McCartney-penned tune to cover (ranging from "I Saw Her Standing There" to "No More Lonely Nights"); and all proceeds from the album will benefit the Women And Cancer Fund, a charity established in the memory of Linda McCartney. The organization promotes prevention and awareness tactics, as well as advocates for cancer research.Let Us In Album Cover
Let Us In actually started things out with a bang at the beginning of November, when the artists involved held a concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium hosted by actor/musician Jeff Daniels. Proceeds from the show also benefited the Fund.
