We gave it a B+

Berg wrote five No. 1 hits this year for the likes of Deana Carter (?Strawberry Wine?) and Martina McBride (?Wild Angels?), but she saved plenty of good tunes for her third album. From the randy hoedown ?Back in the Saddle? to the elegant ballad ?Back When We Were Beautiful,? Berg combines smart Southern lyricism with an emotional range that her more famous beneficiaries can only aspire to.
