Todd Snider Warns Loretta Lynn 'Don't Tempt Me' On Dynamic Duet From 'The Excitement Plan' Out June 9 On Yep Roc

New York, NY. (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) - "One of roots music's slyest, smartest songwriters" (SPIN) Todd Snider teamed up with music icon Loretta Lynn for the "rollicking" (New Yorker Online 3.23.09) duet "Don't Tempt Me," off Snider's forthcoming album 'The Excitement Plan,' out June 9 and available now for pre-order from Yep Roc. Snider and Lynn co-wrote the devilishly flirty tune, produced by Eric McConnell, which chronicles one man's efforts to fend off infidelity from the comfort of his barstool.

"I love Todd, he's a great writer," raves Lynn. "You can tell that he doesn't just sit down and write but that he is always writing in his head. His style reminds me of Roger Miller, a true artist. We'd get together and have so much fun talking and the things we are saying needed to be in a song. It was a very natural process. When we wrote 'Don't Tempt Me' I didn't know we would also perform it together so when he asked I was very happy to."

'The Excitement Plan' is an album at once social commentary, gypsy recession recovery plan and soul-folk masterpiece. Todd and crack sidemen Jim Keltner and Greg Liesz teamed up with Grammy-winning producer Don Was (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones) for an album that exemplifies Snider's by-your-wits lifestyle and once-an-age lyricism.

Yep Roc's exclusive box set edition of 'The Excitement Plan' limited pressing of 500 units sold out in less than 48 hours after crashing the web store with the high traffic.
