Produced by award winning Nashville-based songwriter Jerry Salley, Part of Me, features interesting arrangements that often take unexpected turns, with a unique mixture of veteran, award-winning players, all in support of Cox’s amazing vocal performance. Kristy’s heart is Bluegrass through and through, and Part of Me shows a part of her that has quickly established her in a noteworthy place in today’s international bluegrass scene.
