Consumer Guide Reviews:

Here for the Party [Epic, 2004]
If not a true redneck woman, then an incredible simulation ("The Bed," "Homewrecker"). **

All Jacked Up [Epic, 2005]
Not a good sign when the three really good ones are about booze (if you count the one that's really about stardom) ("All Jacked Up," "One Bud Wiser"). ***

One of the Boys [Sony/BMG, 2007]
Catchy enough for the job, too perky for the lifestyle ("You Don't Have to Go Home," "If You Want a Mother"). *
