The Backyard Sessions

Trolling YouTube I discovered a few gems from none other than Miley Cyrus. I’m not going to knock her for her current stylistic choices, I haven’t been paying close enough attention to develop a solid opinion on it anyways, but I think this style is where her gruff, raspy, but strong voice shines. Plus, it’s hard to go wrong with songs this good and a talented band.

In this series they’ve named The Backyard Sessions, Miley belts out some country classics while the breeze wisps her loose hairs. It’s a nice scene that seems almost natural, though from the look of it and the clarity of the sound it must be pretty high production (where’s the breeze in the mic sounds, huh?). Either way, I like the selections Miley.
