    She's the rarest of things in modern country: a singer who can't help but be compelling no matter what she sings.

    She can be as rugged as Miranda Lambert and Jamey Johnson, and sings better than each.

    With her second album, "Where Country Grows,'' Shepherd merges her deep-country style with a contemporary country sound, setting a modern groove to her rural Alabama persona.

    Her voice seems to bind her. What she needs are songs that unwind her instead of proving her authenticity, godliness and mother wit. Given a reprieve, her singing becomes a treat.
  5. Great tunes, decent voice, scary attitude.

    She's clearly capable of belting a worthy song out of the park, but once again she's hampered by bloop singles and the infrequent double.
