Loversville celebrates classic country music from the 1950s and 1960s, with an emphasis on countrypolitan's high points. We cover our favorite hillbilly standards from Loretta Lynn and George Jones and the like, and mix in originals that sound like the classics!

Biography

The members of Loversville have been playing country covers and originals since 2005, sharing a passion for the early sound of good old hillbilly music from Grandaddy Hank Williams through to Buck Owens, Johnny Paycheck and George Jones, and the mid- to late-1960s countrypolitans like Connie Smith, Loretta Lynn, Porter Wagoner and the Wilburn Brothers. Loversville's originals will transport you to that golden age of true country music.

The band's name comes from a great tune by songwriting giant Wynn Stewart.

Lyrics

Independent Woman

Written By: C. Cossitt

Suddenly -- somebody turned the lights up
And the man behind the bar says time to go
And suddenly -- the chairs are stacked on tables
And it’s looking like I’m going home alone

Well I may look like an independent woman
The kind who doesn’t want you hangin' round
The kind who never calls you when she’s lonely
But this independent woman needs you now.

Suddenly -- I’m hangin’ round the door
Hoping to get a little help with my coat
But suddenly -- th’eleventh hour has come and gone
And I’m seeing once again I missed the boat

Well I may look like an independent woman
But in truth I’m just a damsel in distress
Cuz there’s a bottle in my kitchen I can’t open
And I think I'm gonna need help getting outta this dress
Yeah I sure could use a hand getting outta this dress
