Hang on to yer hat, Cowboy.

Yeeeee-hah Boynton goes Country with Frog Trouble, aterrific CD and illustrated songbook of her new and wildly original Country songs. And they re sung by a truly amazing roster of Country Music's biggest and brightest stars: Here's Brad Paisley with "Copycat," Dwight Yoakam singing"I ve Got a Dog," Alison Krauss on "End of a Summer Storm," Ben Folds rocking "Broken Piano," Darius Rucker with "Beautiful Baby." The lonesome-cowboy title track is performed by the low-voiced moody rocker Mark Lanegan (yes, of Queens of the Stone Age.) Add Josh Turner, Fountains of Wayne, Ryan Adams, Linda Eder, and quickly rising Country star Kacey Musgraves all accompanied by Nashville's finest instrumentalists and WHOA. You ve got yourself some mighty fine music, with a whole lot of gumption and heart.
