Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (2/3/00, p.62) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...with curled-tongue abandon [Parton] re-tackles bluegrass, country and traditional songs with brio..."

Entertainment Weekly (10/29/99, p.115) - "...inspired writing and enlivened covers. Surrounded by an A team of accompanists and singers...she holds her own as a pure mountain talent." - Rating: B+

Q (1/00, p.122) - 3 stars out of 5 - " album of traditional, downhome bluegrass. The rapid-fire rhythms and dancing melodies are well-suited to Parton's vibrato....a fresh, fitting new direction."

CMJ (11/1/99, p.28) - " exciting release....displaying Parton's sweet yet powerful voice...also showcases her formidable of the best and most appealing bluegrass albums of 1999."

Dirty Linen (2-3/00, p.75) - "...[Parton] converts back to the music of her youth for a full-length bluegrass CD....[Her] self-penned compositions, among which is the moving title cut, are allowed some of the overdue spotlight."

Mojo (Publisher) (12/99, p.125) - "...Rarely has this entertainment icon sung more beautifully."
