                Father's Table Grace [Jones- Homer]
"I Love Flatt and Scruggs" is possibly Skeeter Davis' best album up to that point in her career. She glides effortlessly through these mostly up-beat bluegrass-tinged country tunes, each one a perfect match for her voice. Standout cuts are Head Over Heels, Down the Road, God Loves His Children, and I Won't Be Hanging Around. But even songs like The California Uptight Band and Father's Table Grace, which were too corny for words when done by Flatt and Scruggs, are just fine with Skeeter on board.
