What's a honky-tonk babe to do when country radio ain't country no more? Well, in the case of Danni Leigh, whose 1998 debut, 29 Nights, established her as a female Dwight Yoakam, you hang tight, cowriting shuffles like "Cruel Heart" and "Longnecks, Cigarettes" that evoke a neon barroom so realistically there's almost the smell of sawdust in the air. But you also know that steel guitars and heart-on-the-sleeve vulnerability aren't going to give Faith and Shania much competition, so you compromise a bit, throwing in some lightweight rhythm numbers like Stacy Dean Campbell and Al Anderson's rockabilly toe-tapper "Honey, I Do." And for an ace in the hole, you rely on Jamie Hartford's "Back in Your Arms Again," a killer plea for real love. What if that still doesn't cut it at radio? Well, you say, "Forget it, dudes! I'm goin' back to the roadhouse," and you make the grittiest album of your life. This isn't it--the first one was closer--but it's a hint of how great Leigh can be, wedding a barfly's pain to a honky-tonk heart, armed only with a shot of whiskey and a prayer. --Alanna Nash

  • Another classic Country Album

    By DanN  Feb 7, 2001

    ### If you like real country music and are tired of the "pop" country sound, check out this release from Danni Leigh. Danni's voice is honey smooth and accented with a light coat of bourbon and smoke. It will get right to your soul. The songs range fr...om lively party tunes to soul searching ballads all with a true country sound. She is truly Country Music's diamond in the rough. Read more Less
