Tender ballads about floating between girl- and womanhood

The bright-eyed Tennesseean returns with a glistening sophomore album about rebounding from breakups and the uncertainty of adolescence. In pensive, plush crossover ballads, she sings—with endearing self-awareness—about her experiences navigating the bumpy road to adulthood. “Sometimes I’m my mother’s daughter/Sometimes I’m her friend,” she reveals on “In Between,” a contemplative journal entry from age 24. “Sometimes I play grown-up/And sometimes I play pretend.” Don’t miss the tender song “High School,” a final tribute to childhood before joining the real world.
