Album Review

The marketing, the label, and the instrumentation all say "bluegrass," but everything else about this very impressive debut album says "straight-up country." It's actually a masterful marketing move — bluegrass fans who sniff that country music has been too commercial since about 1950 can let themselves be lulled into complacency by the banjo and Dobro, at which point Alecia Nugent's sweet, powerful voice will do the rest. And most country fans like bluegrass anyway, so this will sound just like an exceptionally rootsy country album to them.
