Love Letters is the debut album from American country music artist Leslie Satcher. It was released in 2000 on Warner Bros. Records. Although it produced four singles, none of them charted. Satcher wrote or co-wrote eleven of its twelve tracks, with the only outside contribution being her cover of Bobbie Gentry's "Ode to Billie Joe".

Reception[edit]

Billboard magazine said with the album, "intelligent lyrics meet powerhouse vocals and passionate performance" calling the combination "lethal".[1] Chuck Taylor agreed, calling Love Letters "an impressive collection of well-crafted songs".[2] Texas Monthly remarked that "though Satcher is occasionally guilty of trite lyrics or oversinging, her career is off to a promising start."[3] Taking into account Satcher's songwriter background, People magazine called the album "a welcome entrance from behind the scenes" but "bad news for Nashville's other singers, since Satcher...may be tempted to keep her best work for herself from now on."[4]
