Country singer Lydia Loveless on women in music and her recent signing to Bloodshot

Country singer Lydia Loveless has come through Kansas City and Lawrence on a very regular basis, hitting the area four or five times in the past couple of years. Her voice, which is strong and powerful yet also quite plaintive, has garnered her a following with each successive performance.

She’s playing our neck of the woods twice this week: Friday, April 8, with openers Adam Lee and the Dead Horse Sound Company, and the following night, Saturday, April 9, at the Jackpot. Earlier this year, Loveless signed with Chicago label Bloodshot Records, which is still the name in alternative country. She spoke with us by phone about how she came to be on the label, as well as her future plans.
