For God and Country

Is there any sentiment so corny that Dolly can't make it sound honest? Is there any done-to-death old song she can't make new? Is there any over-the-top idea that she can't make work without so much as chipping a nail?

Dolly relies on the grounding influence of acoustic instruments and her own down-home charm to keep this Technicolor sprawl of patriotic and religious songs from losing focus. On the contrary, this nervy mix of freshened-up oldies, glowing new original songs and scattered spoken-word bits will make you believe there's pretty much nothing Dolly can't pull off.
