By radically shifting her sound, she winds up focusing attention on her songwriting and musicality: it may have mainstream songs, but The Weight of These Wings isn't produced like a country-pop album, so it demands attention and rewards close listening.

Entertainment Weekly

There’s something pleasingly organic ... in Weight’s cohesiveness; it asks for patience and rewards it, weaving true tales of regret and resilience into one fiercely honest, gloriously flawed whole. Bless this mess.

The Guardian

The Weight of These Wings has 24 beautifully crafted songs, and not a melody or word is wasted.

Rolling Stone

The Nashville star's most ambitious LP, a range-y two-disc set ditching country's mainstream playbook for the sort of Great Album rock acts used to spit out regularly back in the day.


There's a masterpiece of a divorce album hidden in here.

This is maybe her best album to date.
She never disappoints
