Bad As It Gets
Label: Universal Music Group International
If the songs on Sweet and Wild are any indication, the honeymoon hasn't ended for Jewel and her husband, champion bull rider Ty Murray. Jewel's sharp, introspective songwriting blossoms on "Stay Here Forever," a lilting love song that celebrates the upside of partnerships, and on "Ten," a cleverly written track about getting through the trying moments of a relationship. Sweet and Wild marks Jewel's ninth album, and the second one to venture into country territory -- a genre that fits her well.
