The Lucky One

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Christy McWilson

The Picketts’ vocalist, Christy McWilson, steps out with a beautifully wrought, wickedly observant solo collection, The Lucky One. These songs of unrest and discontent — about growing older, motherhood, life in the music biz — prove why producer Dave Alvin calls her ”a roots-rock Sylvia Plath.” Musicians Greg Leisz, Syd Straw, and Chris Gaffney add their own homegrown eloquence.
