The Australian country-pop singer-songwriter Kasey Chambers possesses an awesome talent, and the song "Not Pretty Enough" is direct and on the verge of being too precious. But what a pretty vocal melody.
Later in her career, she recorded "Rattlin' Bones" with her husband singer Shane Nicholson, and it was one of my favorite albums of 2008. Let's hope she comes to Utah soon — I don't believe she has been in the nearly five years I've been here.
