Luckily, all that waiting has paid off. Baby's sonic composition perfectly mirrors Miller's lyrical content, with Bosque Brown embracing the freedom to experiment while continuing to honor its roots: Miller's enduring country melodies; her sparse, moving poetry; that dusky, unforgettable voice.

If there's any justice in the world, the citizens and snake handlers of Stephenville, Whiskey Flats and all points in between should be damned proud of this Baby—even if Miller had to leave them behind to make her mark. As she puts it on one of the album's best tracks, the bouncy, girl-group inspired "This Town":

Mara Lee Miller’s sound takes a major step forward on Baby.

Mara Lee Miller’s sound takes a major step forward on Baby.

"I'm rising to something new/The lights I drove through were all that I knew/Of this town/What comes around/Don't always come back."
