Lynch is the perfect mix of that famed trio Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, and Dolly Parton. She’s got the interpretive skills of Ronstadt, the clear and pure voice of Harris, and the bluegrass soul of Parton. Lynch has received Grammy nominations for best bluegrass album, and a female vocalist of the year award from the International Bluegrass Music Association in 1997, but she deserves all the accolades we can toss her way. Her latest album, “Crowd Favorites,” is a compilation of the cream of her recently recorded output, along with re-recordings of a few songs she did in her days with the Front Porch String Band.
