Skaggs, Ricky and Sharon White - hearts like ours [2014]
Welch ein wunderschönes Country-Album. Ricky Skaggs und seine Frau Sharon White präsentieren uns mit mit ihrem gemeinsamen Werk "Hearts like ours" eine Reise in das Reich der "handgemachten", klassischen, zeitlosen, traditionellen Countrymusic, frei von jeglichen Einflüssen des Pop oder irgendwelchen modernen Strömungen des Mainstreams, dafür geprägt von Ehrlichkeit, Würde und herausragender Musikalität. Das Album, nahezu frei von Bluegrass-Elementen (lediglich die Coverversion der alten J. Geils Band-Nummer "No doubt about it" kommt in einem dynamischen, grassigen Gewand), erinnert stark an die früheren Arbeiten von Skaggs, zu Zeiten von "Waitin' for the sun to shine", "Don't cheat in our hometown" und "Highways & heartaches" in der ersten Achtziger-Hälfte, sowie an das Material von The Whites. Akustische Gitarren, Pedal Steel, Fiddle, Telecaster E-Gitarren, hier und da mal eine Mandoline, lockeres Drumming und der exzellente Gesang von Ricky und Sharon bestimmen das Geschehen in Verbindung mit einfach herrlichen Melodien. "Hearts like ours" ist purer, edler Country-Genuss!

Hier noch die offizielle Produktbeschreibung im Original-Wortlaut:
The multiple GRAMMY, CMA and Dove Award winners are married both on stage and off in this tender work that they have waited their whole professional careers to craft in perfect harmony together. Skaggs & White previously won a CMA (Country Music Assoc.) Award for Vocal Duo of the Year and are poised for lightning to strike again with this new album, Hearts Like Ours.
Country fans will rejoice in hearing Forever s Not Long Enough, co-written by Hall of Fame songwriter Bob DiPiero. In this up-tempo tune, Skaggs is back on his red telecaster electric guitar, putting down amazing licks and his signature clear, strong vocals along with tight harmony by White. In Reasons To Hang On, a new song co-written by Leslie Satcher, hit-maker for George Strait, Vince Gill and Reba McEntire, one finds a simple country faith that s really anything but simple, driven by mandolin and guitar to make a full country sound. A soothing steel intro opens When I m Good And Gone, co-written with heartfelt sincerity by country music artist Buddy Jewell after his father s passing. The tune If I Needed You special to Skaggs & White, sung to each other on their wedding day, showcases true love along with Hearts Like Ours, written by another country couple, Marty Stuart and Connie Smith. With throwback sounds for today s country audience, fans will appreciate the mix of mandolin, fiddle, steel, guitars and drums, bringing the best sounds of yesterday and today together. Hearts Like Ours captures a modern take on a classic country feel and is destined to be a highlight in country music this year.
