DISClaimer Single Reviews: Americana Releases Bring Warmth To Cold Nashville Winter

Robert K Oermann

Lisa Morales and Rodney Crowell

LISA MORALES & RODNEY CROWELL / “Flyin’ and Cryin’”

Writers: Lisa Morales/Rodney Crowell; Producer: David Garza; Label: LM

–This single is a teaser for Morales’s upcoming album. With an ultra-subtle production of sighing strings, gently brushed drums and acoustic strumming, the duet achingly delineates a lost relationship. Rodney’s seasoned tones match Lisa’s resonant delivery exquisitely. She was half of Sisters Morales until sailing on as a solo with two prior CDs. Her sibling Roberta died of cancer last year. Mexican American Lisa Morales hails from Tuscon and is a cousin of the legendary Linda Ronstadt.
