The recording, inspired by Buckley's critically acclaimed 2011 engagement at Feinstein's at Loews Regency in New York City, features the singing actress' interpretations of classic Broadway songs that were originally made famous by men.

"A Hymn to Her" concept and lyrics are by Eric Kornfeld and Eric Stern.

Betty Buckley offered acclaimed performances in Broadway's Sunset Boulevard, Carrie, Song & Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 1776, Triumph of Love and Promises, Promises. She won a Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella in the Broadway production of Cats, and she starred on the London stage in Promises, Promises and Sunset Boulevard, earning an Olivier Award nomination for her work in the latter.
