Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3
There's a lot to be said for the old adage that you're known by the company you keep. So to all who think of Todd Snider as a snarky burnout with one minor '90s hit, take note of the guy's friends: Jerry Jeff Walker, John Prine, Loretta Lynn, Jason Isbell and so on. When people of a certain stature vouch for somebody, it matters. And if you study Snider's catalog from his start in 1994, you hear patterns emerge - razor-sharp wit and an x-ray vision to see through American »»»
Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker
For Todd Snider, Jerry Jeff Walker looms larger than a mere musical hero. When Snider first relocated to Austin in the early '90s, Walker was the first singer/songwriter that Snider witnessed in the city's club scene, showing Snider by example he didn't necessarily require a band to achieve his musical goals. Somewhere along the line, Snider even camped out on Walker's sofa for a few months. Given their longstanding professional and personal connection, there can be little »»»
"Some of this trouble just finds me," sings journeyman folk singer/troubadour Todd Snider on Greencastle Blues, the opening track of this career-spanning live collection, and that about sums up the kind of things that either happened directly to him or the characters that populate his songs, a distinction that's blurred more often than not.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Forbert shows himself to be more than "Romeo's Tune"
Steve Forbert may forever be known as the singer behind "Romeo's Tune," but that would be cutting him short as an artist. Forbert showed on Saturday that he has more than one worthy song from his four-decade career, even if none rose to the prominence of "Romeo's Tune."
Forbert mixed it up between folk (of course, he has... »»»
Concert Review: Combs, Gill, Harris, Crow comprise one final musical platter
Vince Gill played host to an entertaining guitar pull, a show which also featured his longtime friend, Emmylou Harris, slightly newer friend Sheryl Crow and brand-new friend Luke Combs.
Gill joked from the outset that this All for the Hall fundraising show needed Combs to sell tickets, and by the audience's response, it was clear many came only to see Combs.... »»»
