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: Earle maintains his value – Steve Earle is always worth seeing live. He's accumulated such a treasure trove of stellar songs over the years, in fact, that he could easily rely on past accomplishments - as so many others do. However, his latest album, "So You Wannabe an Outlaw," is easily one of his best. Therefore, his choice to perform a goodly chunk of this... »»»
Concert Review: Paisley brings the magic – If you've heard many of Brad Paisley's studio records, you know at least some of what to expect - for sure, there will be a mixture of the fun and funny with the tender and teary. Then throw in some blistering guitar work, and don't forget the celebration of grown-up beverages. A Brad Paisley concert is no different.... »»»

Poor David's Almanack CD review - Poor David's Almanack
If award bling on the mantle and merit certificates on the wall are any measure, David Rawlings' place in the musical firmament is as secure as a tectonic plate. His work with Gillian Welch, the creative yin to Rawlings' yang, has been recognized with Grammy nominations and a variety of awards from various sources, but the adoration emanating from the pair's slavishly loyal fan base is the best indicator of their success over the past two decades. »»»
Weakness EP CD review - Weakness EP
Margo Price's surprise EP, "Weakness," is a pleasant surprise, indeed. It may be concise, but it's packed tightly with good stuff. The project's title cut is a bit confessional and finds Price admitting, "Sometimes my weakness is stronger than me." Price sings it like a down home cowgirl, over a toe-tapping beat. »»»
Twisted Pine CD review - Twisted Pine
After gaining a following on the acoustic scene as a band with progressive bluegrass leanings and roots, Massachusetts-based Twisted Pine's self-titled release finds they've, well, progressed quite a bit. The 11 tracks find them a bit more toward the jazz and swing side of things. Kathleen Parks is a dynamic fiddler, who has developed her own stockpile of unexpected and rewarding licks, while mandolinist Dan Bui is likewise unafraid to stray outside the conventional lines.  »»»
Music in My Heart CD review - Music in My Heart
Charley Pride shows with "Music In My Heart" that he is still in fine voice at the age of 79 with this collection of mostly obscure covers. The most recognizable are effective takes on Merle Haggard's "That's The Way It Was In '51" and the Tommy Collins penned "New Patches" most notably recorded by Mel Tillis and George Jones. »»»
Mayhayley's House CD review - Mayhayley's House
For years, Lonesome River Band was proud to be "Carrying The Tradition" of bluegrass music. Then, with last year's release they began the process of "Bridging The Tradition" of bluegrass to something a little more progressive, a little more modern. Now, "Mayhayley's House" proves that LRB is continuing across that bridge. »»»
