Slack Key Guitar, Vol. 2

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Various Artists

Thanks to the Grammys' ever-expanding waistline, the 50th state received its own category this year. The winner is this pleasant, if somewhat sleepy, compilation of slack-key guitar music, an acoustic tradition that brings together weepy cowboy melodies and breezy island rhythms.
