"Unique voice. Her A material huge but scattered over many albums(true of even the best recording artists).Sometimes I wish she would enunciate lyrics more clearly. Much sought after by other artists for duets and harmonies. See my list: BEST OF EMMYLOU"

"Best cover of 'Gentle on My Mind' plus her other hits. Best-selling female singer of the 50's and the most silky soothing voice this side of Karen Carpenter. Some of heyday work too old-fashioned for me, but she found a 2nd niche later crossing into 'countrypop'."

"Newest addition to my list. Fresh young talent with 3 CDs full of light pop songs with pleasing vocals, creative melodies, lyrics and rhythms. Good duet LUCKY on a Jason Mraz CD. 4th CD 'Gypsy Hear' disappointing. One good song: Land That's Far Away."

"Her talent is only really showcased on a couple of songs per CD(usually ballads). So this is just a token representation. There is no real 'Best of' compilation yet. See my ALISON KRAUSS: Her Best So Far."

"Well, this is a start, anyway. She's one of only THREE women to have SEPARATE worthy careers as singer/actress, along with J-Lo and Cher. For the males in that dept, check my 'Male Vocalists' list."

"Though she's a great talent, I'm not a huge fan because of (till recently) the sameness of her material a la Barbara Strident. But this is a solid CD, with a pleasing, more contemporary uptempo style."

"Her career finally took off with this Grammy winner. A late bloomer. See my list: SINGERS ADDED TO MY COLLECTION THIS PAST DECADE.  This and 'Sweet Old World' are her two best CDs(both in the 90's). Since then, other than the fine song ARE YOU ALRIGHT?, she often sounds like she has awakened from a stupor, almost a caricature of her unique sleepy relaxed style."

"Add 'Blue' to this astounding hit at age 13!). She debuted as a TOPNOTCH country singer and is now only another GOOD pop singer. She should go back to her roots."

"YOU AND ME is my favorite Tammy recording. My second favorite isn't on this CD. It's called BENEATH THE PAINTED SKY. I couldn't quite fit Loretta Lynn or Reba McIntyre onto this list. Big stars who fit the stereotype of 'whine and twang' country music too closely for my liking. Sorry."

"Deserves a reputation beyond Nashville cred. Superb support vocals on Kristofferson CD 'Moment of Forever', especially on BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HERE. Saw her show in Nashville. This is her best CD so far but she needs better choices of songs."
