Holly Williams, 'Here With Me' (Mercury Nashville)

7
Here With Me
Critical Mass
Label: Mercury Nashville

by Jon Young

She might be Hank's granddaughter, but Holly Williams doesn't let the lovesick blues get her down on this twangy-yet-smooth sophomore effort. Between "He's Making a Fool Out of You" -- which advises, "Never lay your heart down for a lie"-and an aching cover of Neil Young's "Birds," Williams meets life's knottier challenges without flinching, her yearning voice revealing just enough cracks and scars to reflect hard-earned wisdom. If it all sounds too serious, check out the acoustic ballad "Three Days in Bed," a startling display of raw desire.
