Hailey Whitters – Black Sheep October 2

Her 10-track album mixes high-rock country songs with traditional ballads. She kicks it up a notch with “Long Come to Jesus,” “Heartbreaker,” and “Pocket Change.” Then she brings it back level with “Late Bloomer” and “Low All Afternoon.” The title track “Black Sheep” brings out the rebel in us all, and the record as a whole is a nice break from the pop-country format.
