Chris Richards of the Washington Post offers brief reviews of the new releases from Lady Antebellum (Golden), Pistol Annies (Annie Up), and Natalie Maines (Mother).
Additionally, he asserts that "country is the genre where women are delivering today’s most compelling tunes. They’re the songwriters with the most courage and vim. They’re the singers with the widest emotional breadth. They’re the risk-takers."
