Overview

Although she's recorded five of her six albums in Nashville, Jewel's never made such an overt play for the country charts before. Recorded with John Rich of Big & Rich, Perfectly Clear debuts on the Music City independent label Valory, but sonically, it's not that much of a departure for the singer-songwriter -- the title track (and fast-rising single) has been a concert staple for years. "If I had been discovered now, living in my car in San Diego, I think I would have been signed as a country act," she told Billboard. "As a singer/songwriter and as a storyteller, I'm old fashioned. I like a beginning middle and end to my songs. That's pretty much just country radio now."

Editorial Reviews

Billboard - Chuck Taylor
Her seventh album and first full-length country project, Perfectly Clear, is not only persuasive, but down-home, old-school country.
