When the Roses Bloom Again

type:
Music
Current Status:
In Season
performer:
Laura Cantrell
genre:
Country

We gave it an A

Cantrell’s second CD straddles the alt-country divide between Kitty Wells and Iris DeMent, with a nod to bluegrass and ’60s rock. She keeps the pedal steel prominent on many of the melancholy songs by underexposed writers like Amy Rigby and Joe Flood. Cantrell updates vintage country with a voice as sweet as clover.
