CD reviews for Ryan Adams and the Cardinals
The follow-up to 2007's "Easy Tiger" sees Adams and his stellar alt.-country crew picking up where they left off. From the opening notes of the warm, roots-y Born Into A Light, Adams and guitarist Neal Casal work off each other perfect while Jon Graboff adds some sweet pedal steel accents. Meanwhile, songs such as So Easy have a tad more bite to them, but Adams' knack for wearing his heart on his sleeve has never been better.

On "Cold Roses," Ryan Adams & The Cardinals channel the influences of The Band and The Grateful Dead into a work that primarily chronicles the way places and objects can mysteriously trigger specific memories.
There are plenty of locations referenced here, such as "Meadowlake Street," "Cherry Lane" and "Magnolia Mountain." Floral-centric lyrics also abound on tracks like "Rosebud," "Cold Roses" and "Blossom." These various songs are reminders that the unavoidable scent of a favorite flower, which »»»
Jacksonville City Nights
You'd think an artist as prolific as Ryan Adams has been in the last few years would find it difficult to stick to a certain kind of genre over the course of an album. And indeed, his sprawling major-label debut, "Gold," included everything from a Stones-y rave up to soulful ballads tinged with Van Morrison. After spelunking into 1990s style rock on "Rock n Roll" and dirgeful melodrama on "Love Is Hell," however, Adams is making some of the most focused - and best- music of his career. »»»
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: LSD tour provides a lot of highs
This was not your grandkids' country, that's for sure. Even the name of the tour - the LSD Tour - was a throwback (albeit far before the principals were making music). But make no mistake about it. With the ever cool country traditionalist Dwight Yoakam, the country with some rock and blues and rabble rousing of Steve Earle thrown in and the... »»»
Concert Review: Alvin, Gilmore fortunately get together
Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore had known each other for decades, but it wasn't until last year that they toured together in a guitar pull setting. What started as a small Texas tour mushroomed into points east and west and eventually the release earlier this month of their blues-based disc, "Downey to Lubbock."
And now we have the... »»»

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,... »»»
Sugarland is back with "Bigger," its first studio album in nearly a decade. And its arrival says more about branding, than anything else. Although his voice is heard often enough on this album to make his presence felt, it's still difficult to get away from seeing Kristian Bush in the Oates to Hall or Ridgeley to Michael role in this duo. »»»
This One's For You Too
Luke Combs has gotten a lot of life out of his album "This One's for You," which includes his breakthrough hit "Hurricane," as well as the popular single "When It Rains It Pours." This deluxe edition includes five new tracks, many of which are just as strong as the original 12.
There may be no other CD title this year quite as apropos as this one. Things have indeed changed for American Aquarium since their previous studio album (2015's underrated "Wolves"). For one thing 80 per cent of the band quit, leaving only lead vocalist and songwriter BJ Barham. »»»
