Sing: Chapter 1

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Wynonna; Status: In Season

Wy doesn’t elevate the American songbook on Sing: Chapter 1, an album of covers, so much as knock it unconscious. The frisky New Orleans jazz of ”That’s How Rhythm Was Born” and ”Women Be Wise” may be A-OK, but once the arrangements can no longer match her vocals — beware those lugubrious strings! — everything collapses. Worse, there’s just nothing new or fresh about the way she’s flogging these favorites. And honestly, haven’t songs like ”When I Fall in Love” suffered enough? C
