But, as Ralph Stanley once said, musical talent "tends to run in families like a good line of dogs, and there ain't nothing you can do to change that." The gift of simplicity--the family talent for distilling a situation down to a few clear drops of pain--pops up all over Holly Williams' music, and when it does it will rivet you to your seat. Her best songs look without flinching at the family demon, alcohol:
Why are you drinkin' like the night is young?
The kids are in bed and the day is long done.
So why are you drinkin' like the night is young?
Why are you screamin' like I don't have ears?
Yeah, why are you screamin' like I don't have ears?
Baby, I can hear you loud and clear.
