Grammy® award winning country music singer and Grand Ole Opry member Crystal Gayle released “Ribbon Of Darkness” digitally today, kicking off the pre-sale for her forthcoming, first new album in nearly 16 years, You Don’t Know Me.

Available everywhere Sept. 6th from Southpaw Musical Productions/BFD/The Orchard, the new music finds the acclaimed stylist exploring songs written or recorded by such country legends as Dolly Parton, Marty Robbins, Willie Nelson, Buck Owens, George Jones and Hank Williams. The album was co-produced, recorded and mixed by Crystal’s son, Christos Gatzimos.

“I am so excited that my new album You Don’t Know Me is finally coming out on September 6th,” said Gayle. “You can now listen to “Ribbon Of Darkness,” one of my favorite tracks. “Ribbon Of Darkness” was written by Gordon Lightfoot and was a hit for Marty Robbins and Connie Smith. It was the first song I ever sang on the Grand Ole Opry. I hope you like it!”

Fans can preorder You Don’t Know Me here.
