The way her voice drips in like syrup when she comes into her & Porter Wagoner’s cover of “Dark End of the Street.”
How her soaring harmony line is anchored to earth by Porter Wagoner’s voice on “Always, Always.”
She crafted an epic break-up song so perfect and crafted that Whitney Houston and the rest of America thought it was just a dumb power ballad.
The song “Bargain Store,” which is inexplicably not the biggest hit song of all time.
You can not fuck with her country game.
