Pride A Tribute to Charley Pride CD review - Pride A Tribute to Charley Pride
When discussions of great classic country voices and legacies come about, it's always names like Williams, Nelson, Cash and Jennings that get bandied about. And while there's good reason for those, one would be remiss to forget the influence of Charley Pride as well. A three-time Grammy winner with 29 number 1 hits under his belt, Pride's influence to the world of country music is oftentimes overlooked, but no less present. That influence hit heavy with longtime country star Neal »»»
Pride: A Tribute to Charley Pride CD review - Pride: A Tribute to Charley Pride
Today, Charley Pride may be most known for blazing a trail as an African-American country singer in the segregation era, but he deserves to be remembered as a star country singer, not just a star African-American country singer. He was, after all, one of the most successful acts of his time, with a string of hits that any singer would envy. Pride's run of hit singles listed from the mid-1960s through the '80s, and he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2000. »»»
XII CD review - XII
After seven years without a studio album, Neal McCoy has been quite busy of late. First came a collaboration with jazz orchestra leader Les Brown Jr., and now comes his first country record since 2005's "That's Life." To help make his return, McCoy has enlisted dome big time players, in the form of producers Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton and Brent Rowan. While McCoy was a reliable hitmaker in the '90s, he was most known for good-natured, novelty songs and an exciting live show. »»»
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: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

With Stanley and Watson, sound isn't elementary Those aware of the late Owsley "Bear" Stanley likely know him for one of two reasons - his pioneering work manufacturing lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in San Francisco during the mid-to-late 1960s and his role as an innovative sound engineer. Most notably, Bear worked...... »»»
First Cigarette CD review - First Cigarette
The stunning vocal of Travis Meadows on the opening track, "Sideways," brims with honesty, pain and hard-earned wisdom as he offers a blend of confession and advice, stimulated by an experience at an adolescent addiction treatment center. Meadows, like many, is one of those Nashville songwriters ("Riser" for Dierks Bentley and "What We Ain't Got" for Jake Owen), but is finding his own voice relatively late in life. »»»
The Long Awaited Album CD review - The Long Awaited Album
When last we visited a new album from Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, 2011's "Rare Bird Alert," we found a cohesive, focused collection of bluegrass; it was an expansive, artistic creation that only benefited the bluegrass community. A subsequent live album (strikingly entitled "Live") presented a continued refinement of this pairing's chemistry.  »»»
