Consumer Guide Reviews:

Wide Open Spaces [Monument, 1998]
Blonds have more brains (than they get credit for) ("Wide Open Spaces," "Give It Up [Or Let Me Go]"). **

Fly [Monument, 1999]
Unlike three virgins ("Goodbye Earl," "Sin Wagon," "Ready To Run"). ***

Home [Open Wide/Monument/Columbia, 2002]
deeper proof than they intended of the deep meaning of neobluegrass--you can't go home again ("Travelin' Soldier," "White Trash Wedding") *

Taking the Long Way [Open Wide/Columbia, 2006]
"The Long Way Around," "Not Ready to Make Nice" Choice Cuts
