"The song selections are perfect, the harmonies glorious, the sentiments wonderfully maudlin (like any good old country song),
and the Nashville session players are amazing.
"

"Something 'Bout You is more like what you'd hear if you slipped out the back door of the Ryman Auditorium
into Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, or any of the other smoky joints along Nashville's Broadway"


Selected as one of the Best Albums of the Year by Norm Mast and Al Kniola, hosts of
The Back Porch, WVPE Public Radio, South Bend & Elkhart, IN, and by Ed McKeon,
Folk Director and host of FM on Toast, WWUH-FM, Hartford, CT

Something 'Bout You, recorded in Nashville with ace producer Rich Adler of Soundwave Studios, is Amy's first collaboration with resophonic guitarist Roger Williams. Amy and Roger have been performing together in Stillwaters since 2000 and share a common love of good country harmony singing. Roger's country music pedigree is impeccable; he is the son of Northeastern country singer Gerry Lee and steel guitar player Curly Williams. For this project, Amy and Roger culled from hundreds of vintage duets, some of which Roger learned at his mother's knee, everything from the Louvin Brothers to bluegrass greats Jim and Jesse to the Everly Brothers, from obscure duos like Merle Haggard and Bonnie Owens, Wilma Lee and Stoney Cooper, Delia Bell and Bill Grant, and threw into the mix a few contemporary tunes from the likes of Kevin Welch and New Hampshire songwriter Rick Lang. Add some stellar session musicians providing some classic pedal steel, fiddle, and honky-tonk piano, and the result is 14 tunes that put the "K" back in country!



   "Damn, if it isn't wonderful. I think it's the best thing that Amy has done...one of the best
albums I've heard this year. A bunch of really old, relatively obscure country songs, and a few new ones, donein that old-fashioned country duet style that is killer. Amy's vocals...with the power and tone of her voice, are tempered by Roger's baritone which has been sanded smooth by cigarettes and, shall we say, maturity. The song selections are perfect, the harmonies glorious, the sentiments wonderfully maudlin (like any good old country song), and the Nashville session players are amazing."

"...One of the great country duets; just as perfect together as Wilma Lee and Stoney Cooper,
the Louvin Brothers, George and Tammy; an absolute delight to hear.
Frankly, I don't just like it; I'm excited to listen!"

"Something 'Bout You is more like what you'd hear if you slipped out the back door of the Ryman Auditorium into Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, or any of the other smoky joints along Nashville's Broadway....cleanly and intelligently produced, and...a lot of fun to listen to."

John Lupton / Sing Out Magazine, Autumn 2008

"Put (it) in the hopper today, and it is now on its 3rd consecutive spin. Lovely indeed. What singing!
Great choice of material, and just the right touch on the fiddles and ivorys and slidy slide things."

Rik James / KGLT-FM
Bozeman, MT, Radio Host and Americana music director


The songs here are superb, as is the musicianship....harmonies here are absolutely wonderful...if you aren't familiar with the fine art of country duet singing, may I suggest this CD as a fine starting point?
Highly recommended, by the way.
