B is wrong, it compares the flavor of the ballads to ‘other country singers…

C uses ‘those’ incorrectly, implying that the songs of the other singers have multiple flavors.

D compares the flavor of the ballads to the other singers songs.

E does the same.

A is the only one that properly compares the flavor of Gillian Welch’s ballads to the flavor of other singers’ songs
