Where I Belong (2004)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Aug 10, 2004; Lead Performance: Rachel Proctor

Rachel Proctor, the cowriter of Martina McBride's ''Where Would You Be,'' steps forth on Where I Belong, her own debut, with a keen melodic gift, an assured yet vulnerable soprano, and a firm grasp of Nashville's dual love affair with country and pop. Like McBride, she hits her stride with songs of strong, independent women, particularly on the domestic-violence and child-abuse ballad ''Me and Emily.'' Think of her as Martina for the Gen-Y set, with McBride's over-the-top delivery replaced by kitchen-sink realism.
