12-16-00 Billboard.com published a review of Dolly Parton's upcoming album, "Little Sparrow," and had this to say about Sonya:
"There's also a stunning version of the Eagles' "Seven Bridges Road," which features Lyric Street artist Sonya Isaacs and her sister Becky Isaacs Bowman. "Sonya and Becky are unbelievable," enthuses Parton. "I've always loved that song and thought [it] would be great sung with women, because the only way I've ever heard it was sung with men... I thought I'd gather me up some good girls, so I did it with the Isaacses, and they did a great job. They are such great singers."
