Slow Dancing with the Moon features a who's who of country music circa 1993; guests including Tanya Tucker, Vince Gill, Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Chet Atkins, Kathy Mattea, and Billy Ray Cyrus are just a handful of the singers and players joining Parton on this outing. Ironically, it's the simpler, sparer songs that work best here; stripped of all the gloss and star power that sink the guest-dominated tracks, they allow Parton's emotional vocals to really shine through. ~ Jason Ankeny
