  • The fourth official duo album by Nashville singer-songwriters Buddy and Julie Miller (although each always appears on the other's nominally solo albums as well), WRITTEN IN CHALK is as pleasantly evanescent as its title. Like Robert Plant and Alison Krauss's RAISING SAND as re-interpreted by the Band circa MUSIC FROM BIG PINK, there is an off the cuff, loosey-goosey feel to these songs that only serves to improve them. Plant makes a guest vocal appearance on the sly shuffle "Whatcha Gonna Do, Leroy," and Emmylou Harris sings a haunting duet with Julie Miller on "The Selfishness Of Man."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.77) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he real star is Buddy, who brings a poet's knack for fresh imagery to songs of spiritual thirst and romantic strife."

Spin (p.80) - "WRITTEN IN CHALK sounds like a breakup record, with the Millers picking through an emotional boneyard of broken promises, shattered hearts, and spiritual uncertainty."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.109) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Julie wrote most of the songs, most are country ballads -- sentimental, heartfelt and tend towards the sacred."

Paste (magazine) (p.58) - "There's a soul-clasped gut intuition to the way their voices dance about one another that just breaks your heart."
