A rough-and-ready seven-song chronicle of a band putting down their roots, but foreshadowing realized greatness. Even in this early stage of her career, Shook's signature brand of country music-wry and irreverent, high and lonesome-sent up the smoke signals for a much-needed alternative to the middle-of-the-road, feigned-authenticity of "Americana" singer-songwriters.
