nashville based cortney tidwell releases her new album 'boys', the follow up to her debut album, 'don't let stars keep us tangled up', which was released to universal critical acclaim in 2006 and cited as one of the best ten albums of the year by the uk's sunday times newspaper. it is released by city slang records. the album contains 11 brand new tracks, including 'being crosby', a duet with jim james (my morning jacket): recorded in cortney's home and her friends' homes and co-produced by cortney, her husband todd tidwell and ryan norris, 'boys' is, like its predecessor, an astonishingly eclectic and genre-defying mix of the many musical forms that have inspired her. it owes as much to depeche mode and joy division as it does to loretta lynn and johnny cash, and as much, if not more, to great britain as to the grand ole opry. it's all held together by cortney's extraordinary voice: athletic and graceful, as capable of immaculate innocence as banshee wails, and equipped with an irrefutable ability to strike right to the heart.
