On You, Me and a Redhead, Kerri Powers' rootsy country music combines the sultriness of Shelby Lynne (the title track), the emotion of Rosanne Cash ("What's a Lonesome Girl to Do?"), and the rocking energy of Bonnie Raitt ("Don't Tell Me"). Powers hasn't yet captured the sublime originality of a Neko Case, a Gillian Welch, or a Kasey Chambers, but she has the potential to be great. Hopscotching from bittersweet alternative country on "Four Wheel Drive" to the sad, classic sound of "Daddy Don't Fall Down" to the folky humor of "F-150" -- a love song to her truck -- Powers displays versatile songwriting that always returns to heartfelt Americana.
