The Best of SHeDAISY
Easily the biggest thing that from Magna, Utah, and the group with one of the oddest upper/lower case names ever, SHeDAISY takes a breather from a decade-long career to release a greatest hits survey. Unfortunately, there are no new tracks here, so even if you only have their debut "The Whole SHeBANG," proceed with caution - four of the first five tracks match, almost right down to the sequencing.
Although these super slick, more pop than country songs were (mostly) legitimate hits, »»»
For their seventh album, the Utah trio of SHeDAISY returns with another disc filled with heavily pop-influenced country, girl power anthems and empty lyrics. The highlight of the 12 tracks is the final cut - "She Gets What I Deserve," the only track of any substance. It's written from the perspective of a woman looking at the life of her ex-lover's new lover.
SHeDAISY exhibits excellent harmonies on songs like "23 Days" and "I'm Taking the Wheel," but »»»
Sweet Right Here
It's a little bit hard to think of this group of three sisters making a comeback, but that's exactly what this FOURTH? release from SHedAISY feels like. After "The Whole Shebang" got their career off to such a powerful start, few were prepared for the less-than-enthusiastic response from the second outing, "Knock on the Sky."
So the Sisters Osborn have come out with a sound that doesn't sound a lot like either of those albums. There is a simple live-in-the-studio feel to these 12 songs, all »»»
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: Daniels wears out bows, but music endures
After each of the first few songs Charlie Daniels played, his 'fiddle tech (?)' exchanged his bow. Is this because he was playing particularly hard? Perhaps. Whatever the case, Daniels and his five-piece band clearly appeared to be giving it their all during the act's hour-and-a-half set.
As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»
Concert Review: Rawlings easily moves out of the shadow
Every once in awhile David Rawlings moves out of the shadow of musical mate Gillian Welch to launch his own tour. While Welch, for whom Rawlings plays guitar, has the more prominent career, nights like this ably confirm that there is a reason does his own thing as well.
Rawlings, who released the very fine "Poor David's Almanack" in... »»»

Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno. Their new release, "Echoes In The Valley" features mostly songs written by Fleck and Washburn, banjos, Washburn's strong vocals and very little else.... »»»
Legends don't come any more legendary than Chris Hillman. The roll call of bands that comprises Hillman's half century in music reads like a wing exhibit at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame; Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas, the Souther Hillman Furay Band, the Desert Rose Band,... »»»
William Shakespeare noted a few centuries back that a rose by any other

Walker Hayes has a lot of Sam Hunt in his music, in that he mixes a lot of hip-hop in with his country. Traditionalists will have trouble with his unorthodox approach. Kids, though, raised on just as much Drake as Paisley, will likely eat it up. »»»
From A Room: Volume 2
There is no bigger artist in country music today, perhaps even in American music, than Chris Stapleton. His appeal reaches beyond just the commercial country fans for his gritty bluesy approach. 2015's "Traveller" set a high bar, which was met by this year's release of "From A Room: Volume 1," which won Album of the Year in the 51st CMA Awards. »»»
