REVIEWED BY RALPH NOVAK
Whether kicky or solemn, Vincent delivers on this down-home disc, which combines her vivacious, sweet-toned vocals with the zesty picking of her splendid band, the Rage. She boasts of both her Missouri roots and her bluegrass ones on the vigorous title song, celebrates her Christian upbringing on "Jesus Built a Bridge to Heaven" and proudly waves the American flag on "God Bless the Soldier." Vincent also gets a notable visit from Dolly Parton, the den mother of bluegrass girls everywhere, who adds ethereal backup vocals to "Heartbreaker's Alibi." [stars 3]
