Editors' Notes Austin singer/songwriter Carrie Rodriguez digs into her roots more deeply than ever before here. The album—mostly originals plus some classic ranchera covers—was inspired by the alt-country artist’s San Antonian great-aunt, Tex-Mex singer Eva Garza. Rodriguez slips back and forth between Spanish and English as she paints a powerful tale of Mexican immigrants in Texas (“Llano Estacado”), gives her all on a reverent cover of the ranchera tune “Si No Te Vas,” and offers up a sassy, autobiographical country-rocker about asserting her identity (“Z”).
