Nobody has had to say "Sorry, Charly" about anything to McClain lately. She has settled into a smooth, easygoing style that is the best kind of unaffected Nashville pop; the authenticity of her sound isn't hurt by the fact that she was born and raised in Memphis. McClain, 26, and her producers have also refined their selection of material to present her to her best advantage. This album includes a graceful country waltz written by Eddie Burton and Thomas Grant, Dancing Your Memory Away, and Skeeter Davis' sweet, lilting Love This Time. There's a moody tune by Rick and Janice Carnes (no relation to Kim) and Chip Hardy's Twilight. The only off-putting part of the LP is the crass double entendre of the Becky Hobbs-Candice Parton song I'd Rather Give It A way to a Stranger (Than Throw It Away on You).
