Overview

Making the leap from her family's popular bluegrass/gospel group the Isaacs, Sonya Isaacs lights out for the territory where country intersects with the music she's been singing since the age of three. With Vince Gill producing seven tracks, guest vocalists Joe Diffie, Dolly Parton, Jason Sellers and Steve Wariner, and a wealth of trad instrumentation, Isaacs' straight-shooting approach is virtually free of pop influence. The songs, five of which she co-wrote, explore love's conflicting emotions and examine family matters with a maturity uncommon in such a young artist. "I've Forgotten How You Feel," "Two Badly Broken Hearts" and "Just Go" offer unusual twists on the mating ritual, but what lingers in memory are the album-closing "Healing Hands," Isaacs' hymnlike paean to the restorative power of unconditional love; and the gospel gem "The Battlefield," with Isaacs and Gill's solemn, moving testimony framed by a stark arrangement centered on pennywhistle, acoustic guitar and accordion. A chilling moment from a remarkable debut.
