I really don't know much about Tift Merritt, but she was the first song on this past month's Paste magazine sampler and I can't stop listening to it. Her song "Broken" combines her sweet voice with some country-twanging guitar, violin, and a steady drum beat that drives this song into your head and won't get out. I have debated whether or not to buy this album solely on the strength of this song, but I'm hesitant to get into an alt-country album like this without at least a little knowledge of the artist first. If you buy Another Country, let me know how it is.
