Jewel - The Merry Goes ’Round

Life on her Texas ranch with bull-riding champion husband Ty Murray is good, judging from the happy vibes here. Written with their baby son, Kase, in mind, Jewel’s latest CD features family-friendly originals like the swinging “Supermarket Song” and the Spanish-tinged “Bucky the Bull.” But the former Alaskan folkie also has a knack for such country-fied classics as “Oh Susanna” and “She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain.” Jewel even channels Julie Andrews on the Mary Poppins classic “My Favorite Things.”
