Before I get to the best news you've heard all day, let me make a statement:

Crystal Gayle deserves to be in the Country Music Hall of Fame. It's a shame she isn't. To the folks that decide such things, please get that taken care of.

Ok then, now the fantastic news.

Crystal is releasing her first new album in 16 years on September 6!

Entitled You Don't Know Me', this is going to be a 'must have' for country music fans. 14 incredible tracks (plus a bonus track: I Cried The Blue Right Out Of My Eyes), the album is filled with classics you know and love, and infused with that incredible Crystal sound.

Just to give you a hint, tracks include 'Please Help Me I'm Falling', 'Hello Walls', 'There Goes My Everything', 'That's The Way Love Goes', 'Walkin' After Midnight' and more.

Geez, I'm already singing along (poorly) just looking at those titles!

Again, the album goes on sale September 6th. Rolling Stone has more details on the album, which includes a duet with her sisters Loretta Lynn and Peggy Sue.
