Editors’ Notes

Sarah Johns joins the growing pack of new women country artists with her 2007 debut Big Love In A Small Town, an album brimming with take-no-guff attitude (along with some softer moments). In certain ways, this record invites comparisons with Loretta Lynn’s proto-feminist anthems of the late ‘60s. “If You Could Hold Your Woman” (addressed to a boozing ex-boyfriend) and “The One In The Middle” (referring to a well-known obscene gesture) are put-downs aimed at misbehaving males, served up with twang-heavy guitars and countrified rhythms. Tracks like the pain-wracked “That’s Just Me Getting Over You” define Johns as an independent female surviving heartache and forging ahead. Big Love In A Small Town takes care to flesh out Sarah’s portrait with less confrontational songs, celebrating successful relationships in the title track and capturing the thrill of a crush in “He Hates Me.” She gets into a honky-tonk mode in “A Lot To Let Go Of” and strikes a spiritual note in “Muddy Water.” If this engaging first effort owes a debt to Gretchen Wilson and Miranda Lambert’s recent releases, there’s still enough individuality here to make Johns an artist to watch.

Customer Reviews

This One's on Fire

This young lady isn't only Charismatic she can sing like no other. Only other Debut cd for which I bought in full was Carrie Underwood and Trust me Sarah Johns is going to give that girl a run for her money and than some. I look forward to seeing her in concert. Buy this one if you don't buy any other cd this year. You won't be sorry I wasn't

Just picked it up today

Sarah does a great job with her single and the rest of the album didn't let me down. I love it from start to finish. Can't wait to see her live sometime. Thumbs up from me.

Alright!

After hearing a lot of pretentious garbage pretending to be country on I-Tunes lately it's good to hear the real deal.

Sarah Johns grew up in Pollard, KY, and spent much of her youth singing in her church choir.
