Johnny And June
Label: Curb Records
As the singer for country trio Trick Pony, Heidi Newfield proved she has a powerhouse voice. On her first solo effort, Newfield pulls out the stops with a diverse collection of rockin' songs. "Can't Let Go" is a chugging, frantic rocker about an ended relationship that smacks of denial and desperation, while "Love Her and Lose Me" is a hurt-dripping, heartbreaking slow song that wonders what the other woman is like. On the flipside, Newfield expresses optimism about how a relationship should be with her tribute to the ultimate "country" couple, "Johnny and June."
