We gave it a B

For anyone who’s sick of pop passing for country, here’s the antidote: a trio that’s honed its high-energy sound in humble honky-tonks instead of swank Music Row offices. Thanks to Heidi Newfield’s wildcat vocals and the band’s twang-and-bang spirit (plus cameos from Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings), you can practically smell the sawdust on Trick Pony.
