Music Matters Review - One-Horse Town
by Michael Devlin
Tracy Grammer and Jim Henry seem to be trading seven-song EPs. After Henry backed Grammer on The Verdant Mile, she returnes the favor on One-Horse Town, playing violin and singing harmony. Henry is a subtle and sweet player on guitar, dobro and mandolin with an easygoing vocal style. He covers some traditional tunes including a nice adaptation of "St. James Infirmary." Although Dave Carter's "Quickdraw Southpaw's Last Hurrah" debuts on this disc, the two most memorable songs on the album are Henry's own "This Lullaby," a song that celebrates childhood as well as growing older, and "Ruby," a cheerfully loving song that must be addressed to his daughter.
