Janie Fricke
Country Side of Bluegrass
CD ($10) available at www.janiefricke.com

An award-winning country vocalist in the ’80s, Fricke topped the charts with a string of successful singles, including “He’s a Heartache,” “I’ll Need Someone to Hold Me (When I Cry)” and “Do Me With Love.” For her latest project, she returns to the familiar turf of her previous hits and adds a couple of country standards, giving them all a bright, brand-new, bluegrass-y spin with the homespun instrumental textures of fiddle, banjo, Dobro, fiddle, mandolin and acoustic guitar.
