K.T. Oslin to release new album after 15 years 2015-03-12
Grammy, CMA and ACM award winning artist/singer/songwriter K.T. Oslin is set to release Simply, her first album in 15 years. The album has new arrangements of many of her hits including
Younger Men, Hold Me, Live Close by, Visit Often, 80ís Ladies and others.
ďWe started out putting together a little band to do some personal appearances. That was my object to spread the music out to maybe some people that didnít hear it at the time before and I got along with
Jimmy Nichols so well, my keyboard player, co-producer, arranger and poof maker and everything, and we decided why not make a record because we changed everything. I said some of these records, when I hear people that come to see me live and the music seems to become more clear to them than the records we did, that we just didnít capture it on the record. We just didnít get it, we just didnít. I thought they were too good to lay and fallow and just wilt away and so we came up with new arrangements, new ideas and very sparse playing. Just play the notes that are really key, nothing else and thatís what we did. Iím very proud of this little record. Itís a small little record, not meant to be bombastic. Itís meant to be pleasurable and I think itís an easy record to listen to and Iím happy when people like it,Ē Oslin stated.

Versatile stylist and 1988 CMA Female
Vocalist of the Year K.T. Oslin joins
the Nashville Symphony Orchestra this
weekend (Oct. 1 and 2) as they present
the season's pops series opener. To
represent different stages of her
career, Oslin will sing selections
ranging from Broadway music and Gershwin
to '60s favorites.
The outspoken Oslin, whose big hits
include "'80s Ladies," "I'll Always Come
Back" and "Come Next Monday," hasn't
recorded an album since the
critically-acclaimed 1996 release My
Roots Are Showing. Though Oslin was
satisfied with the album, the
"marketplace" and radio reception was
lukewarm at best.
"I'm not one to follow rules," Oslin
recently told The Tennessean. "To play
it safe and pick stuff that is
radio-friendly is not interesting to me.
I would always rather be radical.
There's always a chance that something
odd might work."
The normally unflappable Oslin went on
to say, "[The business] frustrates me in
as much as radio has so much control
over what we are allowed to hear and
makes up our minds as to whether we like
it or not. I resent that gauntlet you
have to run before people get to hear
