Make Every Word Hurt has been one of my favorite Lori McKenna songs since I heard her playing it live a few years ago. The song simply blew me away that day and it still does today. I was kind of surprised when it didn't appear on 2011's Lorraine (fortunately, the record was so good that I didn't mind the "omission"). Lori's 7th album Massachusetts comes out tomorrow and to my delight I see Make Every Word Hurt is on it. As if I wasn't already excited enough to hear new music from one of my favorite singer/songwriters.
