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 years. "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.
