Usually, the Blues/Country Singer Songwriter thing is a total testosterone domain even if most of the guys are pretty forward and not the prejudiced rednecks we (well, I do) imagine when we hear COUNTRY.
However, Cary Ann Hearst does kick some mean ass with her aggressive and powerful fusion of country, blues and the Rock’n Roll vibe of a PJ Harvey. It’s incredible that even the whiny country-guitar (you know what I mean when you hear it) turns into something else under her oh so American gal voice.
The only negative is, however, that she doesn’t have humungous boobs, so she definitely will destroy the great myth that all country gals have a rack to balance a whole tea set on. Dang.
