One of alternative Nashville’s most potent female singer-songwriters, Kate Campbell sets her own songs aside on Twang On A Wire to pay tribute to a dozen pioneers from country music’s senior sorority. Backed by a fine band that includes Uncut favourites Jeff Finlin and Will Kimbrough, she runs through a dozen great songs made famous by the likes of Lynn Anderson (“Rose Garden”), Tanya Tucker (“Would You Lay With Me In A Field Of Stone”), Jeannie C Riley (“Harper Valley PTA”) and Dolly Parton (“Down From Dover”). The lusher Nashville pop sound of the originals is replaced by a more stripped-down, alt.country feel to make Twang On A Wire an unexpected delight.
