Kimberly Murray – Another Day Of Lonely (2011)

From the snippets on site this is how real country should sound. Its a 21st century take on traditional honky tonk the likes of Bob Wills Ray Price Moe Bandy and hundreds more churned out back in the day and thats no bad thing when you hear the noise Nashville assaults our ears with now. Vocally Kim sounds up there with the best of ’em. Only the Becky Hobbs infectious dynamic is missing otherwise this girl could be massive with the breaks and right record deal.
