The most impressive thing about Alecia Elliott is not that she was born on Christmas Day 1982 -- which makes her all of 17 right now, folks -- but that she is a product of the sacred ground of Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Her debut album may have been recorded in Nashville, but her husky, seductive voice, gritty beyond its tender years, betrays those roots. Of all the teen phenoms suddenly emerging in country music, Elliott may well have the best shot at building a Trisha Yearwood-like portfolio of style informed by substance. The edgy, blues-tinged title cut and the soaring power ballad that precedes it, "Every Heart," may be polar opposites, the former demanding attitude and sultriness, the latter open-hearted pop belting, but Elliott knocks both of them out of the park like Mark McGwire sitting on a fastball. While not every song here is a gem, the performances demand attention. This could be the start of something big. And memo to Alecia: Lose those clunky shoes.
