Acclaimed alt-country singer Tift Merritt has stretched out on her new album, "Another Country," broadening her voice and repertoire in meaningful ways without abandoning her roots. Writing her newest material during several months in Paris couldn't help but inspire change in the North Carolina artist, though not everyone is happy about it. A few critics are openly alarmed. But Merritt's nearly 90 minutes at the Troubadour on Thursday suggested growth, not confusion.

The idea that she had been selected just didn't seem likely. But there the 30-year-old Texas native was, in the big leagues, with her Southern-fried "Tambourine" competing for best country album against country institution Loretta Lynn and chart-toppers Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Gretchen Wilson.
