NASHVILLE, Tenn. - November 21, 2005 - GRAMMY nominee and Nashville
recording artist LynnMarie will travel this week to the country of her
heritage, Slovenia, to release her first European album. The CD, a
collection of songs from her last three recordings, will be released by
Squeeze Records and distributed by Megaton Records in Slovenia.

LynnMarie "America's Polka Queen" features 16 previously recorded
tracks plus one new recording of "Squeeze Box". "We wanted the first
single to be especially geared towards the Slovenian audience," said
producer and Nashville guitarist Charlie Kelley, "Squeeze Box is one of
LynnMarie's most successful songs, and I believe the European audience
will love it's unique sound with a touch of the Slovenian language."

LynnMarie will travel this week to Slovenia for a 10 day media tour,
including television, radio and print interviews, as well as live
performances. "This has been a lifelong dream for me, and I'm thrilled
to have this opportunity. Being raised in the ethnic Slovenian
community in Cleveland, I feel like this album brings my music and my
career full circle" said LynnMarie.

LynnMarie's grandparents immigrated to Cleveland, Ohio in the early
1900's, instilling their children and grandchild with the culture and
heritage of their homeland. Her relatives still live on the family farm
in Zagradec Slovenia, property that's been in the family for over 500

   "We are excited about this joint venture with Megaton records to
take LynnMarie's music to a European audience", said Squeeze Records
owner Jim Rink. "I am confident that her unique sound will quickly
spread from Slovenia into other European countries."

LynnMarie is the first female to win multiple GRAMMY nominations for
"Best Polka Album," She and her band, The Boxhounds, tour throughout
the United States and Canada. She is recognized for expanding polka
music beyond the traditional sound by blending rock and pop with a
high-energy performance.
