Now and Then CD review - Now and Then
Fifteen years after his debut, Tippin reintroduces himself with 3 new songs and 10 re-recordings of his own hits. Among the new tunes, "Ready to Rock (in a Country Kinda Way)" is a southern rocker that tips its hat to Hank Jr., while "Could Not Stop Myself" and "He Believed" mix strong vocals with upbeat, electric guitar-bass-and-drum and touches of fiddle and banjo. The productions sound fuller than Tippin's 1990s recordings, but with the same muscular power. »»»
Stars & Stripes
Aaron Tippin may be known as a country singer espousing blue collar, working man values, but something seems to be missing here in a big way at least musically. When working class comes to mind, one thinks of Tippin's sometimes tough sounding voice that gets to the heart of the material. But the problem time and again is the music and quality of the songs. There is far too great a generic sound produced by the typical Grade A session players. Too much drums from Lonnie Wilson and a lack of »»»
A December to Remember
A dozen new Christmas songs beckon from Aaron Tippin's first holiday album. Including "Jingle Bell Rock," this mustachioed covers five seasonal classics, best of all his bathed-in-blues rendering of the Ernest Tubb/Elvis Presley giant, "Blue Christmas." Yet Tippin strikes bold where so many choose to play it safe by striking forth with seven originals. Some are quite good. Others, well, are not. He adds to the ever-growing canon of silly Christmas songs with his rocking "It's A Good Thing Santa »»»
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: Mumford and Sons up to snuff, for the most part – Mumford and Sons have always played it smart when it has come to career moves. They have not overtoured by becoming regular fixtures on the touring circuit. Their M.O. is to tour just enough upon an album release and then disappear for a stretch. Ditto for releasing new music ("Delta" just came out last month, Mumford's first release... »»»
Concert Review: Finally back, Kodaline brings the optimism – Kodaline may have taken a long layoff in playing Beantown - a good 3 1/2 years - but in this fickle musical world, that did not mean their fans abandoned them for a brand new thing. In fact, the venue sold out weeks ago. No surprise because, once again, the Irish rock band admirably combined old and new. Kodaline was a bit of a musical potpourri of... »»»

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" 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.

Rodney Crowell's "Christmas Everywhere" is a (mostly) melancholy collection of songs, with Christmas time as its setting. It's a strong set of carefully worded tunes, set to widely varying musical backings.  »»»
