Caitlin Rose covers Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks Track "That's Alright"

Add Nashville's Caitlin Rose to the ever-expanding list of American artists finding more welcoming arms -- and critical acclaim -- across the pond in the U.K. and Europe. While her new album Own Side Now draws stellar four-star reviews in London ("more than lives up to expectations...lovely stuff" -- Q, "major star alert" -- The Guardian) and gets an opening slot on the current Deer Tick U.K. tour, we wait patiently for a U.S release. Young singer/songwriters with a twang and an appreciation for alternative and traditional country styles (and who don't fit into the Nashville star-maker machinery) too often get neglected or pigeonholed. It's a shame, too. The fine, promising Own Side Now deserves greater exposure -- even in her own backyard.

Rose's debut has the classic rural tones of a Patsy Cline but this is a distinctively contemporary album in both lyrical depth and brash defiance of any particular one-note style. There are country/pop elements of Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt along with a version of the Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks song "That's Alright".

I like this..I do... I can objectively say that it is ..nice.... but something is missing... I want to feel a little more emotion maybe.... get something more out of her.... it's a 'good' cover though.

I went to her website and listened to all the songs, and she is a winner. That album is a throwback with a modern twist. I'm going to buy it. I think it's excellent.

Absolutely lovely. I also really like the Nora O'Connor version. Both are respectful, but not slaves to Stevie's version.

This cover is OK, but what is really interesting is the Fleetwood Mac video clip interview from Denmark. Wow ! To see footage of young, beautiful Stevie is rare. Most old clips have such poor visuals, but this one is so clear, she looks lovely. Is it really from Denmark in 1976? I never knew the Mac went to Europe until the Rumours tour. And do you have any more footage like this?
