Annie Up CD review - Annie Up
For those who thought "Hell on Heels" was a one-off side project for Miranda Lambert (along with sidekicks Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe), think again.

Pistol Annies CD review - Pistol Annies

That album's so good, in fact, one was left wishing he'd included even more of it in his setlist. Those album tracks he did sing, though, stood up well among his many hits.... »»»
Concert Review: Lula Wiles is on the verge – Lula Wiles is on the verge. This three-piece folk-Americana band composes and performs music with skill and assurance.
