“Show off
her storytelling skills”

“Crossbone Beach” (featuring steel guitar ace Robert Randolph) gives (Shemekia Copeland)┬áthe chance to show off her storytelling skills, spinning a tale of menace and danger. Copeland gets to do the same on the tongue-in-cheek “Drivin’ Out of Nashville,” which pronounces that “country music ain’t nothing but the blues with a twang.” It’s a delight to hear Copeland with pedal steel guitar trailing her vocal line and that chunka-chunka Johnny Cash-style driving the rhythm.
