Heartbreaker (Music - Ryan Adams)

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Ryan Adams; Producer (group): Bloodshot

Whiskeytown’s Ryan Adams is a brash, alt-country balladeer with a rock instinct. The women in his songs steal his shirts and records; that’s why he loves them. Guests on the mostly subdued solo project Heartbreaker include the shadowy tandem of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, and the magnificent Emmylou Harris, who — harmonizing on ”Oh My Sweet Carolina” — helps cement Adams’ rep as a latter-day Gram Parsons.
