”This One’s for the Girls” is one massive shout-out to country radio’s coveted female demographic. But then, every tune here is for the ladies: When an album’s opening tracks are titled ”So Magical,” ”She’s a Butterfly,” and ”City of Love,” it’s a sign you’ve stumbled on the year’s most Y-chromosome-repellent song cycle. Occasional breaks from the MOR treacle help, like ”Wearing White,” a bluegrassy reclaimed-virginity anthem, and ”How Far,” a big-lung marital-distress signal a la ”Where Would You Be.” As for the rest, give the girl props: You’ll never hear more beautifully sung sap.
