"Contemporary folk music is thriving, thanks to sparkling,
fresh releases by artists such as husband and wife Emily and Al Cantrell. Her acoustic guitar and sweet, soaring vocals are
accented perfectly by his sparse harmonies and mandolin work. Emily wrote nine of the songs ranging from thoughtful ballads
to good-time tunes; the 10th is a traditional number*. The dynamic dobro of Jerry Douglas stands out on four tracks."
-Rosenbaum, The Blade, Toledo, OH
