The legendary country diva returns with her own label (complete with a cowboy hat logo incorporating her name) and a sure-fire mix of poignant, emotionally charged tunes. Tucker's raspy voice wrings all the fire and intensity out of the opening rocker, "Old Weakness (Coming on Strong)" (originally a Delbert McClinton number), and tones down for the whimsy and reflection of "Oh What a Love." Rootsy rockers like "Over My Shoulder" work the best, but Tucker seems, as always, adept at just about any great story and steel guitar-twanged groove that comes her way.
