There's been a lot of buzz about Nikki Lane and Margo Price as the next generation of (women's) outlaw country music but I've took a spin through their albums and...I dunno. I just don't buy it. There's a certain slavishness to making it sound old, to projecting an image of a woman who just doesn't give a shit, that makes their acts just that -- an act. Sarah Shook, on the other hand, is the real damn deal. Equal parts Lydia Loveless and Hank, Shook displays her scars with honesty and aplomb, the kind of person who has real war stories and lots of practice sharing them.
