“Doing no-frills traditional country is tougher than it sounds. Many times, musicians who try come off as staid, corny, self-important or reclusive. With her indelible melodies, warm voice and spare, winningly plain-spoken lyrics, Pinto Bennett protégé Tracy Morrison gets it just right.” Ben Schultz - Boise Weekly
