Trixie Mattel, "The Well"
You may know Trixie Mattel as the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, but the performer is also a talented musician, having released a capable album of country songs called Two Birds in 2017. This week, Mattel returns with the appropriately titled One Stone, a follow-up to Two Birds that explores Mattel's traditional country and folk influences with wit, style and occasional humor. One standout is "The Well," a yearning acoustic track with clever lines like, "Running's just how I won the race," offering a sepia-toned counterpoint to Mattel's brightly colored day job. B.M.
