Despite the great collaborative work of Tweedy, Mavis is obviously the star here. She could surely let her resume speak for itself at this point of her career; Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award Winner, etc. But on One True Vine, she sings these songs earning every word and every note. As cliché as it sounds, she makes this songs and stories her own whether they are or not. She's a legendary voice, and One True Vine is another remarkable reminder why.
