Few vocalists in any form of music can forego using their last name, electing to simply be known by their first. In the world of country, Dolly Parton is one that comes to mind along these lines, along with a woman from Oklahoma who grew up inspired by artists such as Parton and Loretta Lynn. Her name? But, great things were in store for the singer. Her first top ten hit came in — and just a few months ago, her two-disc Gospel set entered the Country Albums chart at No. When you look at great moments in her recording career, you see an artist who has been able -- at the same time -- to be both vulnerable and to still exude as much strength as any artist who has come before or after her in the format. As it turned out, that was not the only change the singer embarked on at that time. With this single, she went for more of a wide-open and organic sound, just narrowly missing the top spot with a song about the unknown future of a new relationship. Is it love, or just a good time?
