Anita Cochran is finding serenity with her long awaited new release Serenity! Anita says, “After switching record labels, I had to do some soul searching and after several years I feel I’m in a better place, which is why I’m calling my first new album in 5 years Serenity.” Upon teaming up with longtime friend, musician and producer Mark Thompson – the two co-produced the critically acclaimed record “Where I Am” by singer Tammy Cochran (no relation) – Anita and Mark got busy on Anita’s new music. “I felt I had a lot to say, and the music just kept coming,” says Anita. She is the sole writer of all 10 songs on the album. Serenity is full of surprises according to Anita. The title track features Ty Herndon on vocals. Also included is a new solo acoustic recording of her chart-topping hit “What If I Said”. A special treat is the fan favorite and much talked about “I Wanna Hear A Cheatin’ Song”, a song that made music history as it features the voice of Conway Twitty singing a song he never recorded years after his passing. Says Anita, “It’s amazing but he sang every word that is on this song. We pieced words from his previous recordings together for this project. I grew up on Conway’s music and received his family’s blessing, so it only felt right to include this song on the new record.”
