Jody Miller – Wayfaring Stranger [The Final Recordings]

GRAMMY winner Jody Miller had been working on a farewell album with Tracy Pitcox & friends at his Heart of Texas studios in Brady, Tx. and the talents of the folks assembled for the purpose enabled Miller’s still-vibrant voice to shine.
Passing away in October 2022 at the age of eighty, Jody Miller showed no signs of vocal deterioration as she rendered personal favorites for her project. Her producer was the renowned Justin Trevino. His keen steel & fiddle sensitivities are evident throughout. Two of the tracks are waltzes, two others specifically Western Swing. They include a sweet Swing treatment of title track “Wayfaring Stranger.” And who more appropriate to render the swinging “Your Exes,” the “answer song’ from those Exes in Texas, than the lady who answered “King Of The Road” with her own 1965 hit “Queen Of The House” (freshly re-imagined for this project)!
At six songs, this one is technically an EP, but it stands nicely in final tribute to its famous singer. Recommended.
