My Kind of Christmas
Upon initial listens, Reba's new Christmas album comes off a little overwhelming. Upon closer inspection, though, it's revealed to be much better. This is because the album is so darn simple. These songs feature only Reba (listed in the credits as the 'girl singer') and a piano accompaniment. Such stripped-down arrangements offer a stark contrast to many of Reba's usual ornately produced non-holiday albums.
First and foremost, these basic recordings highlight »»»
It's been five years since her last album - 2010's "All the Women That I Am" - but the Queen of Country Music's crown hasn't lost its luster. On her 27th album, Oklahoma native McEntire adds another jewel to her tiara - she's already garnered 35 number singles and sold 56 million albums worldwide - with her new album that covers familiar territory: strong women, the heartbreak of breakup, the determination of a broken lover starting over and the destructive and »»»
All The Women I Am
The hope of any budding artist is to be able to cut a record that justifies having the chance to do it again let alone be launching their 34th release yet, but that's just what Reba McEntire's up to with "All The Women I Am." Continuing to tap into her girl power within, the redhead delivers more of her signature sass and sound, consistently peppered with power and poignancy.

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: The Lumineers energize
The Lumineers continued their Cleopatra World Tour with an energetic performance.
For some attendees, the only wet-blanket moment were the political references. Some were more subtle, like in middle act Andrew Bird's "Table and Chairs," but others were more overt. The Lumineers singer Wesley Schultz switched up the lyrics in the... »»»
Concert Review: On Inauguration Day, Alvin unites all
On this night of the presidential inauguration, Dave Alvin could have easily and conveniently filled his between song patter with snarky remarks about the new president, who is not a big favorite among artists. But Alvin is smarter than that. Instead, he mostly kept his personal feelings to himself. He also did something completely wonderful and unexpected.... »»»

I Sang the Song
Mac Wiseman's album is one of the most unique collaborative efforts in recent memory. While many music figures have released late-career albums made in partnership with producers and musicians best-known for their work in other genres in an effort to either reinvent themselves or to bring their music to a new audience, bluegrass great Wiseman opted to partner with songwriters in order to turn stories from his life into new songs. »»»
Laws of Gravity
The Infamous Stringdusters have always been difficult to categorize. That's part of their charm. Part traditional bluegrass (leaning on sound bluegrass instrumentation, namely guitar, Dobro, banjo, fiddle and standup bass), part jam band (extended sets of songs in their live shows in which one song triggers another), and wholly original with a signature sound and energy that goes on without cease. »»»
Rented Room on Broadway
Emerging from a latter version of The New South, over the past 16 years, Wildfire has quietly established itself as a consistent bluegrass outfit. With original members Robert Hale (guitar) and Curtis Chapman (bass) leading the way, Wildfire returns with "Rented Room on Broadway," their fifth album. John Lewis remains on banjo while bluegrass vagabonds Greg Luck (fiddle and guitar, and another J. D. Crowe alumnus) and Chris Davis (mandolin) make their recording debut. »»»
If naming your release "Gunslinger," you'd better let it rip and go for a harder country sound, especially if donning a black cowboy hat on the cover. The reality does not exactly match that sentiment for Garth Brooks, but at times he comes mighty close. »»»
There's a scene in the movie "Bull Durham" where Kevin Costner tells Tim Robbins how holding the record for most home runs in the minor leagues is kind of a dubious honor - it shows a lot of years that you didn't make it to the majors. Is that what being the biggest country band in Canada is like? High Valley, who've scored an impressive run of Great White North charting singles and awards, would disagree. »»»
Live Dinner Reunion
Talk about déja vu all over again, Robert Earl Keen's 'new' live album is a two-disc re-living, if you will, of the Texas singer-songwriter's "No. 2 Live Dinner," which was originally recorded in 1990. Performed again in front of an audience at John T. Floore Country Store in Helotes, Texas, "Live Dinner Reunion" includes many of Keen's best songs. »»»
