Big Love in a Small Town

In the tradition of her fellow Kentucky native Loretta Lynn, Sarah Johns is equal parts sweetness and sass—a red-blooded country gal with an open heart and a closed fist. Her debut album is most appealing when Sarah’s personality is showcased, as on the feisty single “The One in the Middle,” “When Do I Get to Be a Woman” and the slow-burning “If You Could Hold Your Woman.” There are a few too many slick ballads slowing things down, but Big Love remains a promising debut from a thoroughly modern gal with a classic-country heart.
