Amber LucilleAll the Beauty and the Love
Amber Lucille affixes her brand of country with a heavy Americana bend that strikes the right balance of dance-floor two-steps and a touch of social commentary. The steel twang of "Dear Brother," written by Lucille for her brother serving in Afghanistan, imbues the song with a sweetness that permeates the rest of the songs. Roots rocker "That's Not Me" fuels All the Beauty with all the power it needs.
