Joe Navrath, Sugartime Music

Traditional country at it's best,$16.95-What a bargain!
Heres a cd that is sharp , clear and so easy to listen to. The vocals and instrumentation blend to yield a pleasant experience for the listener. We need more quality presentations like Yvonne's.

David Squibb

Spine chilling, breathtaking, earthquaking
Ms. Devaney belongs in the Lynn / Wynette pantheon. Her record is for people who long for country music before hats and videos. This is what God intended country music to be.

Ron Whistler
