Over the course of her decades-spanning career, Tracy Nelson's strong and bluesy vocals have tackled, with aplomb, a variety of Americana styles: country, folk, blues, rock, Cajun, and whatever else felt right for a particular song. On this 2007 release, the singer/songwriter's diamond voice once again sparkles from a range of settings, including Western swing ("Cow Cow Boogie"), light zydeco ("Oh, Lonesome Me") and good ol' Johnny Cash country ("I Still Miss Someone").
