Review: Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer Reimagine Dylan and Nirvana on Profound Covers LP
Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer are Alabamasisters who survived stints in mainstream country and then built admirablecareers on its outskirts. This long-gestating duet LP shows a shared sensibilityand two perfectly matched voices. Their reading of Nirvana’s “Lithium”connects Kurt Cobain’s “Sunday Morning” to Johnny Cash’s, and totheir own history. But the title track is the crown jewel, showing theriver-deep musicality of a latter-day Dylan croaker when it’s parsed byimmaculate, blood-kin harmony.
