Indeed, Lionheart sounds amazing, with tasteful production and nary a note out of place. It’d probably benefit from a rough edge here or there, even. But in terms of songcraft, performance and message, it’s an impressive step into the solo spotlight by McEntire.

God Is in the TV
A fresh and forward-thinking album that manages to stay so true to its roots.

Exclaim!

Lionheart feels honest and original, despite the fact that its heartfelt, twangy gospel also sounds kind of timeless.

Pitchfork

Heather McEntire’s solo debut is a vivid travelogue of the American South penned in her native tongue of country music. Lionheart is brought to life by McEntire’s soulful voice, by a sweeping Nashville sound, but more so by a deep sense of conviction.

PopMatters
This is music with its roots in the past but its branches reaching ever-forward.

The Independent
In places, McEntire’s wordiness gets the better of her ... But the most effective songs here are those which reach out directly to her family

The Skinny

Lionheart promised much, but fails to capture the imagination in the way McEntire’s previous work has.
