With her latest release, Pam Tillis becomes only the second major female country singer to be sole producer of her own album. Of course, not a whole lot of male singers get to produce their own albums either, so it's less a matter of sexism than a "singer as hired gun" mentality. (Before you go crazy, the first female to do it was Gail Davies.). The important thing , now that she's producing her own albums, is that it doesn't seem to make much difference in the final product, which should be good news to most people. This is a typical Tillis variety pack, ranging from the robust single "Deep Down" to a lovely version of Bruce Hornsby's "Mandolin Rain" to the redneck silliness of "Betty's Got A Bass Boat." Nashville's leading Pun-dit is at it again with "Tequila Mockingbird. " This one, unlike her previous puns, is a gorgeous song that deserved a more serious title. In every other respect, tastefulness continues to be Tillis' trademark, and she's proven that she can put together a fine album on her own.
