A debut album called 'Hope & Glory' will be released on September 11 featuring guests like Elton John, Wynonna, Gretchen Wilson, k.d. Lang, Alison Krauss, and many more.

Other familiar tracks are covers of Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Neil Young hits among many. “Each of these songs holds a special place in my soul," said Ann. "At one time or another every one of them has kept me up at night to the point of exasperation and will not be banished, as I lay sleepless on my pillow. Such songs as these carry me through my life, and they are a standard to which all new music I hear and write must compare.”

In the Zoe/ Rounder Records album, Ann also receives collaboration from Shawn Colivin, Rufus Wainwright, Deana Carter, and her sister Nancy Wilson. On the production panel is Ben Mink who had previously worked with Lang and Feist.
