Usually when folks give a new twist to traditional string music, it sounds like their vocals are trying to keep up with the playing. For Alecia Nugent, it's quite the opposite. She doesn't lay back -- no sir. Be it in a peppy-picked song or a slower romantic number, her sanguine singing snaps right to it, driving the meter. This is how you sing bluegrass, people.
