"Ohio native Danielle Peck makes her debut on Big Machine Records, one of the independent labels associated with country superstar Toby Keith. The music here sounds like Shania Twain with the snare drums turned down and the twangy guitars cranked up. While Shania usually comes off as playful and flirty in her songs, Ms. Peck takes the "I'm sexy but don't mess with me" approach in her performances. Winners on this album include the brilliant first single "I Don't" (with great lyrics like "The difference is Jesus loves you/But I don't"), the humorous follow-up "Findin' A Good Man", the tastefully sexy "Kiss You On The Mouth", and the kiss-off song "Sucks To Be You". Although some tunes like "Honky Tonk Time", "Somebody Like You" and "Thirsty Again" drift a little too much into the Shania Twain/Faith Hill camp, DANIELLE PECK is the work of a talented artist who deserves to be in the spotlight for many years to come."

"I received Danielle Peck's self-titled CD for Father's Day. I was prepared to be disappointed but instead found myself really enjoying the CD. While Ms. Peck doesn't have the greatest voice, it is sexy and assertive AND she has it under full control (none of the "shrieking diva" approach too often found on CDs by today's country females). The songs selected are very suitable to Ms Peck's voice, and very good lyrically. I say this because,
typically, most CDs have several songs that are out and out duds, but I liked all eleven songs on the CD.
The current song being pushed to radio is "Finding A Good Man" with "I Don't" having also received airplay. Ms Peck has co-writer credits on several of the songs although not on the current hit.
"Kiss You On The Mouth" (a somewhat steamy ballad), "Honky-Tonk Time" and "A Woman Does Too" also would make good songs to promote to radio. The CD is a little heavy on ballads; one more uptempo number inserted near the end of the CD would have been good.
Apparently Big Machine Records is one of those independent labels associated with Toby Keith, but if so, he must be allowing the artists to have complete artistic independence as he wrote none of the songs on the CD and the disc doesn't seem to have any of Toby's touches to the production. Ms Peck does thank her manager, Barbara Orbison in the tray card notes - I assume this is Roy Orbison's widow.
Anyway, I highly recommend this disc and look forward to her sophomore effort. If allowed fractional ratings I would give this 4.5 stars
You may not love me, Danielle, but I love you!

"Considering you can find this album in most places for under $10, you have to admit that the price would make anyone stop twice at this new country beauty. Not to mention the voice that lures you in and slaps you on the cheek before leaving your mind bruised by her lipstick promises.
Yowza! I haven't a voice like this since...yeah: the last record that came out.
But you have to give it to Toby Keith and his record company. They certainly aren't dishing out a forgettable commodity. Danielle Peck's self-titled debut has everything a country CD could offer. There's girl anthems ("Findin' A Good Man"), breakup ballads ("I Don't", "A Woman Does Too") and even those stand out driving songs that Jo Dee Messina used to deliver ("Sucks To Be You", "Isn't That Everything"). It's all here and packaged in that sexy southern drawl.
Makes me wanna kiss her on the mouth...."
