Picks and Pans Review: Can't Run Away from Your Heart

Lacy J. Dalton

Dalton isn't belting as hard or honking and tonking as much as she did when she first recorded years ago. But she seems much more comfortable with and involved in the more deliberate side of country music. This mostly melancholy album, with its title tune written by Wendy Waldman, is a good example of her mellowing, which shows particularly in a Dalton-Paul Worley song, The Night Has a Heart of Its Own, and Lacy's duet with Willie Nelson on Slow Movin' Outlaw. While Dalton is so good with grittier, up tempo material that nobody should encourage her to give up that kind of thing, this new album is a most promising demonstration that she can thoroughly warm the heart as well as the ears.
