Alecia Nugent: Alecia Nugent
Buy! - (Rounder)
This bluegrass vocalist from Louisiana combines bluegrass with traditional country to exhilarating effect on her debut album. She's a powerful, expressive vocalist, accompanied here by some stellar pickers, including Aubrey Haynie on the fiddle, Ronnie McCoury on mandolin, Carl Jackson on guitar and banjo, Randy Kohrs on dobro and Ben Isaacs on bass. The diverse material is first-rate, and she nails it all, from old Flatt & Scruggs and Stanley Brothers numbers to country heartache ballads. 4/8/2004 - Don Slack
