Michelle Branch on the end of The Wreckers, new solo album
Despite a gold-certified debut (2006’s Stand Still, Look Pretty), the Wreckers are done strummin’. “It was a lot of fun,” says Michelle Branch, who launched the country duo with friend Jessica Harp in 2005. “And it was nice to not be the person all the time, but Jessica never got to do a solo record and it was gnawing at her… so for now, it’s gone for good.” But Branch isn’t entirely through with Music Row: She’s working with Dwight Yoakam on a song for her next album, which she hopes to have out by June.
