REVIEW

Shelby Lynne can do it all, and she proves it on "Tears, Lies and Alibis" (Everso). Even though it's the first time she's written, sung and produced all the songs - and then released them on her own label - her 11th album doesn't fall into the traps of many artists with total control. Instead, Lynne shows how well she knows herself, letting the lovely, country-soul "Alibi" unspool perfectly and slipping into a nice groove on "Why Didn't You Call Me," before unveiling the poignant "Loser Dreamer" and securing her strongest album in a decade.
