Holly Norman • Taking Care of Bluegrass 7 StarsHolly Norman • Taking Care of Bluegrass

Holly Norman’s album, Taking Care of Bluegrass: A Tribute To Elvis is an incredible bluegrass album! It’s always difficult to remake hit songs, but to cross genres as well, is a lofty goal. Holly Norman definitely has reached that goal. This collection of Elvis songs has been magnificently redone. Her vocals are authentic and the arrangements are impeccable. It includes twelve Elvis songs plus an original entitled “Long Live The King.”
Kenny & Amanda Smith • Unbound 6 StarsKenny & Amanda Smith • Unbound

Kenny & Amanda Smith have released yet another exemplary bluegrass project entitled, Unbound. IBMA’s Emerging Artist in 2003, this husband-wife duo’s talent continues to mature with this group of well-selected songs. As always, Kenny’s extraordinary flatpickin’ style compliments Amanda’s angelic vocals. Songs of particular interest are “Hills Of Logan County” and “Every Pilgram Needs A Highway.”
