Song of the Day – “New Music” Wednesday – “Young in All the Wrong Ways” – Sara Watkins

I love Nickel Creek, but now that they’ve broken up, I realize the artists have to change as they go their separate ways. I did not really expect this, though.

Sara Watkins always had a sweet voice and was a sublime fiddle player. There’s not much of either in evidence here. It’s not that this title song from her new album is bad – it just doesn’t make her any different from many other female “new country” artists. It’s got the hard edge on the chorus, the softer verses – just more of the same.
