Get a copy of this disc or download it, because it's well worth it!. I picked up my copy from Cheryl at IBMA, and listened to it several times during the long drive home. There's some very solid picking on this project, but the real treats are Cheryl's songwriting skills and her soulful, gorgeous voice. She's got the versatility to sing with a sweet poignancy on "The Old Man Next Door", and then punches it with a bluesy "Hurricane of Trouble".....these two alone are worth the price of admission! Add in some very tasteful mixing/mastering, and this project makes for a great listen.....a terrific effort from beginning to end...highly recommended!
