Don't Fence Me In (1996)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Lari White; Genre: Country

If Lari White's 1993 debut album, Lead Me Not, displayed her wide-ranging country-pop talent, and her second, Wishes, took the commercial route, her third, Don't Fence Me In, now attempts to marry artistic vision and mainstream success with a collection of spunky songs that send a message: Go for broke, especially in love. Stylistically she's all over the place, but convincingly, borrowing equally from Tammy Wynette, Pam Tillis, and even a bit from Michelle Shocked.
