EDITORS’ NOTES

The Dollar's loudest track, "Ray Ray's Juke Joint," lights up a backwoods honky-tonk that even gentrification can't quiet, and every other song on this tradition-oriented country LP can do the same. Sure, fiddle-driven love song "It Was Me" and twangy ballad "My Saving Grace" (about coming to terms with an alcoholic dad) may have a low-key feel, but the vivid stories come through loud and clear. The characters here are both complex and familiar, and the singer’s gentle, steady voice brings dignity to their struggles and dreams.
