The Raconteurs: Old Enough [ft. Ricky Skaggs And Ashley Monroe] (Single)

Warner Bros. Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
I don't know if I would ever have imagined a pairing like this, although we all know Jack White loves to dabble in the country and bluegrass. Grabbing the sweet southern vocals of Ashley Monroe and adding in some Ricky Skaggs plus a feverish fiddle creates this bang up bluegrass rocker. "Old Enough" was catchy on Consolers Of The Lonely and it jams even harder here especially with the little improv of "Wake Up Little Suzie" right in the middle. This single just shows great musicians having a good time and making quality music!
