She’s filed firmly under "country," but Lacy grew up on folk and always loved blues (it’s no wonder she’s drawn those Bonnie Raitt comparisons). Dig that wonderfully smoky voice as you hear her 1989 and 1990 LPs: the hits The Heart; I’m a Survivor; Hard Luck Ace, and Black Coffee; her take on Still Crazy After All These Years; the Glen Campbell duet Shaky Ground, and more! Morello Records.
Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums from the Country vocalist. Lacy J. Dalton is one of the most under-rated singers in Country music. With a voice closer to Bonnie Raitt than any other Country vocalist, Lacy could be described as the female version of Waylon Jennings. Survivor, originally released in 1989, produced three hit singles. The album's best-known song is Paul Simon's 'Still Crazy After All These Years'. The Lacy J. album from 1990 produced three singles, 'Black Coffee' (which would become a line dance favorite), 'Where Did We Go Right' and 'Lonesome (As the Night Is Long)'. The album features a duet with Glen Campbell on the track 'Shaky Ground'. Amazingly, Lacy only won one major award (Academy of Country Music's Top New Female Vocalist in 1980) but awards mean nothing as those with ears know, here is one of the greatest, smoky-voiced Honky Tonk singers of all time.
