We gave it a C

Norah Jones’ cover of ”Why Can’t He Be You” nails Cline’s countrypolitan longing and languor — a combination that goes only half-realized by this tribute’s other femmes, including a woefully miscast Michelle Branch, Natalie Cole, and Amy Grant. Even Patsy’s ”reincarnation,” k.d. lang, sounds ready to give up the ghost. Why can’t they be her?
