I’m a Mountain

COUNTRY

On her lovely, nature-worshipping third album, Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah Harmer proves you don’t have to come up through Nashville to get country music right. Harmer, who grew up in a rural part of Ontario, celebrates her love for the land with a down-home rootsiness on these winsome country, bluegrass and folk tunes. On songs such as the luminous first single, “I Am Aglow,” Harmer brings Dolly Parton to mind with her sweet, slightly tremulous soprano. She even covers Parton’s “Will He Be Waiting for Me” with a nimble, skipping-through-the-grass lightness that does Miss Dolly proud.
