When Fallen Angels Fly

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Patty Loveless

If there’s a singer in country as emotionally gripping as Patty Loveless, I’d like to hear her. Whether she’s stripping the bark off the rip-roaring ”Halfway Down” or summoning up a heartache on the majestic ”You Don’t Even Know Who I Am,” Loveless conveys an emotional range that Trisha and Reba can only dream about. Angels proves that Loveless is more than a player-she may well be this year’s MVP.
