CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY / FOLK ROCK

A writer of many songs done by others (Dixie Chicks, Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless, others), Kim Richey is a notable performer in her own right. This is her eighth album.

No FCC issues.

1 * Mid-tempo. Pretty folk ballad. Nice vocal, rhythm guitar, a bit of pedal steel. (3:37)
2 * Mid-slow. Gentle accompaniment. Melancholy trumpet. Female/male harmony. (4:30)
3 * Mid-slow. Away from home. Banjo picking, pedal steel. Nice harmonies. (4:15)
4 ** Mid-tempo. Excellent duet singing with Jason Isabell. Love this one. (3:05)
5 Very slow, very sad. Drowning her sorrows in whiskey. A bit plodding. (4:31)
6 Mid-fast. Electric country-rock. The most mainstream-radio friendly. (3:24)
7 Very slow. Broken hearted, failed at love. Tedious. (4:39)
8 * Mid-slow. Traditional Americana-style folk ballad. Eerie instrumental mood. Male harmony vox. I can imagine Gillian Welch & David Rawlings doing this. (4:24)
9 ** Mid-tempo. Optimistic, happy song. Very well sung. Stylishly backed by guitar, banjo, pedal steel, piano, drums. (3:39)
10 * Slow, lazy 3/4. A one-night stand in a cheap motel; a guilty pleasure of a song. (3:47)
11 Mid-slow, folk-rock ballad. Nice mandolin. Maybe one *, but just barely. (4:58)
12 V-E-R-Y S-L-O-W. Things are so bad, they just gotta get better soon. (5:23)
