Music
Current Status:
In Season

Sammy Kershaw

Country

We gave it a C+

He finds the heart of such songs as the good-time corker ”Little Bitty Crack in Her Heart” and the tight-lipped weeper of a title tune, Politics, Religion and Her. But then he throws it all away with tired covers of Chuck Berry’s ”Memphis, Tennessee” and Sammy Johns’ dreaded ”Chevy Van.” C+
