"If you have been longing to hear some genuine, acoustic country music performed the way it used to be...then, look no farther than this excellent album. True country fans around Nashville have given great conversation reviews to this product. I can see why. It is the most honest and unpretentious albums I have heard in years. Emily and Al team up on the vocals with some well-known musicians on the tracks...Fred "Too Slim" Labour (upright bass), Bela Fleck (banjo & guitar), and "Ranger Doug" Green
(Western baritone) to do some great name-dropping. Great songs, too. Remember "My Adobe Hacienda"," and "Slow Boat to China"? They're here along with other greats."
-Cash Box Magazine

"An airy, inventive, all-acoustic treat that revives such ancient pop and country hits such as 'On a Slow Boat to China,' 'In My Adobe Hacienda,' and 'I Heard the Bluebirds Sing.'"
-Billboard Magazine

"A warm, nostalgic trip that meanders through Western swing, bluegrass and spirituals. The duo -- Emily sings beautifully and plays a solid rhythm guitar, Al alternates from sweet fiddle to haunting mandolin -- prefer older songs, drawing from Sons of the Pioneers, Pee Wee King and traditional folk songs that travel from Mexico to Montana."
Music Row Magazine

"The Cantrells have come up with a varied collection of acoustic music. Emily is the main lead vocalist. She handles all styles smoothly with her strong clear voice. Al is a fine fiddler who is particularly strong when he gets the chance to swing."
-Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine

"A mighty nice little debut album".
