Cruel Moon

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Buddy Miller

Miller, with his raw and ragged tenor, is so bona fide country he can make even a Gene Pitney cover (”I’m Gonna Be Strong”) seem mountain-born. Guests Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Joy Lynn White, and Jim Lauderdale add texture, but Miller outshines them all on tunes like ”Does My Ring Burn Your Finger.” B+
