Mary Gauthier, “Too Soon to Tell”

Gauthier first came onto the country music scene with her 1997 debut Dixie Kitchen, but it wasn't until her sophomore 1999 release Drag Queens in Limousines that she started to make waves. Gauthier's latest Napster exclusive is reminiscent of Merle Haggard's later work from If I Could Only Fly — her worn out vocals and sad instrumentation give "Too Soon to Tell" a tear in your beer experience. In the end, "Too Soon to Tell" is a little gem of despair or hope depending if your glass is half empty or half full. (Lost Highway Records) Rating: 3 Out Of 5 Stars
