You'd be hard-pressed to find someone who can marry the Appalachians to the pop charts the way Dolly can. Along with her instantly recognizable songs, Dolly's also well known for her no-nonsense approach to life and her ability to poke fun at herself. These gifts come together on Backwoods Barbie, a dozen heartfelt songs written with a dash of humor and solid hooks. The centerpiece is "Jesus and Gravity," an unhurried gem that gradually builds until a full-blown gospel choir is helping Dolly sing praise. Amazing. Other highlights include "Made of Stone," the Celtic-kissed "Only Dreamin'" and the lighthearted "Better Get to Livin'."
