Sally Timms: Cowboy Sally [Bloodshot, 1997]
Piecing together an EP that looks (and probably is) every bit as casual as the rest of her solo noncareer, the old Mekon and new kid-TV star surveys fake authenticity at its weedlike best, from John Anderson's comeback-album title song to "Long Black Veil," which may just be the greatest phony folk song of all time--with Nashville punsters, No Depression punters, and "Tennessee Waltz" betwixt and between. Wryer than your professional country thrush. Kinder, too.
