Brennen Leigh

Thursday, February 16, at McGonigel's Mucky Duck, 2425 Norfolk, 713-528-5999.

The new Devil's on My Trail CD by Brennen Leigh is so country it hurts. And I mean that in the best possible way. There's no bullshit here, just heartbreak, violence and Gawd-fear, the sound of tortured twang giving way to sassy swang and going back 'round the horn for more punishment. Leigh should take her place on the mantle somewhere between vintage (think "Down from Dover") Dolly Parton and Catherine Irwin, although she's more straightforward and less wordplay-drunk than that Freakwater gal. Can't get much more effusive than that.
