The High Notes

The liner notes tout The High Notes as an album that presents “bluegrass renditions of Ricky’s biggest country hits,” which suggests that these will be radical reworkings—but while there are banjos and mandolins aplenty, most of the new versions stick relatively close to the originals. It hardly matters, as The High Notes is a fun, fresh romp through Ricky’s back catalogue that offers a reminder about the continued vitality of the star himself and the outstanding songs that made his name.
