KRISTY COX, “Part of Me,”Pisgah Ridge, 11 tracks

March 7, 2016

Kristy Cox, a top Australian bluegrass musician, has been making her mark in the United States since 2013.

“Part of Me,” her new album, is her second in this country.

Jerry Salley, the Nashville singer-songwriter who produced the album, wrote or co-wrote seven of the 11 tracks.

Cox wrote or co-wrote four, including three with Salley

Chris Stapleton‘s “Daddy Doesn’t Pray Anymore,” with its surprise ending, is one of the album’s highlights.

“Another Weary Mile,” a hard-driving song about driving through a snow storm on her way home with the gas tank nearing empty, kicks off the high-energy album.

“You Walked In” is an uptempo song about a woman facing a lonely weekend until she meets a man in a restaurant.

“William Henry Johnson” is the tale of a ladies man and a woman who thought she could change him. And when she couldn’t, well, she got even.

The title track, written by Pam Tillis and Salley, is about a woman wishing the new man in her life had come along before another man hurt her bad.

“Your Love Never Grows Old” finds a couple looking back on the 30 years they’ve been together.

KRISTY COX, “Living For The Moment,” Pisgah Ridge. 10 tracks.

February 3, 2014

It’s been 18 years since Kristy Cox hit the Australian bluegrass scene as an 11-year-old prodigy.

Now, she’s in Nashville, working on a career in American bluegrass.

Cox’s new Pisgah Ridge album, “Living For The Moment,” hits stores on Feb. 18.

She co-wrote five of the 10 songs on the album, two of them with Jerry Salley, a 30-year Nashville veteran who produced the album and joins Cox for a duet on “When It Comes To You,” a song about someone who knows it’s time to leave a bad relationship but can’t seem to make the break.

Salley also co-wrote four other songs.

“Love Builds The Bridge (Pride Builds The Walls)” is a classic country sound, first recorded by Patty Loveless in 1993. Cox’s version is equally good.

“My Kind of Train Wreck” is a hard-driving song about a love affair that’s headed for trouble — “I never heard the whistle/But I felt the crash.”

“One Heartbreak Away” finds her ready to leave — “Before a teardrop hits the floor, I’ll be gone.”

“I’m Not Gonna Sing The Blues” finds her trying to figure out who she is without him. But she’s not going to waste any tears on him.

“Widow’s Whiskey” tells the story of a woman who’s drinking her life away after her husband ripped the keys from her hand and drove away.

Good album by a promising new talent.
