"Only Glory" mixes steamy southern flavors with a refreshing, unpretentious attitude. An upbeat country charmer like "Brand New Girl" comes from a different sector of the musical map as "Benefit of the Doubt" a ballad Billie Holliday could have worn like a necklace. Yet they both feature a clarity of style that makes them timeless and modern at once, like a dusty old record by Patsy Cline, or a shiny new one by Roseanne Cash. On others, Leeann sounds like she was tutored by Etta James.
This seanless blend of country, soul, pop and blues owes a lot to Leeann Atherton''s background. Raised in Charleston, South Carolina, away from the seductions of shopping mall culture, she put herself through college singing in a dance band at a beach club. She studeied the spirituals of the South Carolina islands, sat in with a rural black choir, and eventually joined the ranks of the professionals at work in the Nashville song factories. It was there during the mid-eighties that Leeann met a producer named Greg Humphrey, a business associate of Emmylou Harris'' producer Brian Ahearn. Both lend production influences on "Only Glory".
