Country Grammarian: Nelly

Geoffrey Himes, Baltimore City Paper, 6 September 2000

THIS IS WHAT pop music is all about. A radio single with a sing-along hook so catchy and so danceable you can't resist it. A fresh sound straight from a street corner that could only have come from right there right now. A hit so ubiquitous that it seems to blast from every boombox, every car dashboard, every record-shop speaker. A new voice that somehow slipped through the industry machinery to burst upon the public untamed.
