What better way to kick off a long Independence Day weekend than by setting off some fireworks with Austin’s First Couple of Country Music? Bruce and Kelly’s newly issued second effort together, Our Year, nearly accomplishes the impossible. It seems unbearably brief, yet almost tops the universally loved Cheater’s Game by mingling gratifying self-composed songs with hot covers from Walter Hyatt, Robyn Ludwick, the Zombies, and Tom T. Hall. That last one’s a fan favorite: Willis’ rendition of “Harper Valley PTA.”
