Gillian Welch - Hell Among the Yearlings (1998)
When the sun is shining and you think it may hold out for more than a few hours, and you get that longing for home... There is a road all souls must take to heaven. I believe it passes through Kentucky. Though Welch herself is no native of Kentucky, she reproduces the folk and bluegrass that has bled in Kentucky for the last 200+ years. Her voice is charming and forsaking at the same time. This album is Welch's second release. It holds well to her talent, despite the exaggerated follow-up expectations to her Grammy nominated debut: Revival.
