CD reviews for Shooter Jennings

Don't Wait Up (For George) CD review - Don't Wait Up (For George)
Let's get one thing straight right off the bat. This is not a tribute album. For one thing there are only five songs on it. But it's not a tribute EP either. Only three of the five were ever recorded by Jones. Whatever you call it, this is the first of two recordings celebrating two very different musical icons. The second, due in January, will fete another George - Giorgio Moroder, an influential producer who worked with Donna Summer and paved the way for electronic dance music. »»»
The Other Life CD review - The Other Life
After the first 30 seconds of "The Other Life," listeners may feel like they are in for "Black Ribbons Part 2." The reality is that like all of Jennings' previous albums, this one has a distinctive sound. He has forayed through Southern Rock, outlaw country and most recently released the straightforward country album "Family Man," which most effectively channeled his daddy's musical ghost. The bulk of "The Other Life" was recorded during those »»»
Family Man CD review - Family Man
After taking a step away from country music to create the brilliant concept album "Black Ribbons," Shooter Jennings returns to his roots. In fact, this is his most country album to date. The lead track The Real Me sounds like a lost Waylon song. Union man and guitar legend Tom Morello steps in to add some flavor to the ultra poppy The Long Road Ahead, which is reminiscent of Jennings sole hit 4th of July. Single The Deed and the Dollar is a heartfelt uptempo love ballad with a strong »»»
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: Time makes a difference for Striking Matches – What a difference four months makes. When the duo Striking Matches debuted in Boston in late May, Sarah Zimmerman and Justin Davis capably showed off their skills, but somehow it felt like a lot of songs fell just a bit short. Davis and Zimmerman tended to cut a lot of songs abruptly, never letting them breath enough or fleshing them out.... »»»
Concert Review: Home Free sings out – Home Free, the Minnesota-based a capella quintet that first caught the nation's attention by winning the fourth season of NBC's reality competition The Sing-Off in 2013, is one of the most talented and unique acts in modern country music. The question has always been whether or not the group and their all-vocal style, which includes the... »»»

No matter what you say, it's The Deslondes In the spirit of hard-hitting journalism, it seemed logical to ask Deslondes vocalist/guitarist Riley Downing the Mike-Wallace-from-60-Minutes question that has to be on everyone's mind: How the hell do you say the New Orleans-based band's name? "It's pronounced 'dez lawn,'" says Downing. "I know there's different ways that people have pronounced it over the course of history...... »»»
Watkins Family make time From their first, self-titled, major label release, the Allison Krauss-produced, "Nickel Creek," two-thirds of that trio - musical siblings Sara and Sean Watkins - have been in the musical spotlight continually since 1999.

Lost Time CD review - Lost Time
As a follow up to their Grammy nominated reunion set, "Lost Time" treads the same turf, spotlighting the Alvin brothers' take on some familiar - and a few not so familiar - blues standards of a revered heritage. While the blues comes in many hues, it's not always easy to replicate them with the same tone and tenacity that the signature artists conveyed.  »»»
Southern Drawl CD review - Southern Drawl

With all the belly aching about country music not staying true to its roots, maybe instead of a new entry into the landscape, it is time for a re-entry. Many hoped that Alabama's latest, "Southern Drawl" would be the cure to what ails the traditionalists. But the iconic band tried to walk a very fine line on its first release since 2001's "When It All Goes South." »»»

Turnpike Troubadours CD review - Turnpike Troubadours
Over the course of their career, Oklahoma sons Turnpike Troubadours have exhibited a commitment to melding country music traditions with a ragged edge which perfectly exemplifies the roots of Red Dirt Country. With less of a focus on rock sounds than those in the alt.-country movement, they have built a sound designed to invoke images of smoky barrooms and raucous crowds. After three years, it was worth the wait.  »»»
Start Here CD review - Start Here
Maddie & Tea (aka Madison Marlow and Taylor Dye) start their biggest song "Girl in a Country Song" with a warning, "No country music was hurt in the making of this song." That warning also applies to the remaining 10 songs, which is about as country sounding as music seems to get these days for most artists.  »»»
Fables CD review - Fables
Sometimes it's all too evident. You hear an artist for the first time and you know he or she is destined to etch their imprint. That's the case with David Ramirez, whose new album "Fables" is one that plucks at the heartstrings and creates an impression that continues to reverberate long after the music finally fades away. »»»
