Sarah Buxton offers new single
Tuesday, October 7, 2008
– Sarah Buxton is back with a new single, Space,
trying to gain headway at country radio. The song is available for digital download.
Written by Buxton with Lari White and Chuck Cannon, the song explores the response after a woman hears her partner say that he needs space in their relationship. Buxton also produced the track, uncommon for new artists. "I wanted the song to have a raw intimacy to it, like you're hearing a private conversation at a really emotional moment between a woman and her man," said Buxton. "We've all heard someone say 'I need some space.' I wanted the song to show the hurt you feel when someone says that, but I wanted the reaction of the woman to show strength and not just pain. It could have been an insecure, feeling sorry for myself ballad but it turned into a self-empowering anthem."
Buxton's 2007 digital EP, "Almost My Record," includes Innocence, That Kind Of Day andStupid Boy along with American Daughters and Love Is A Trip. Buxton co-wrote four of the five tracks on the project. Stupid Boy was a hit for Keith Urban. Innocence and That Kind of Day both made the top 40 of the charts.

CD reviews for Sarah Buxton
Sarah Buxton had to wait for the chance to release her own music after a few singles misfired, but she did not sit still. She wrote a hit song (Stupid Boy) for Keith Urban, chalked two ACM noms for Best New Vocalist and got personal encouragement from Stevie Nicks and John Rich.
So here is the actual record, after her digital-only 2007 release, "Almost My Record." It covers a lot of the same ground (five songs) from that introduction. But there are some key additions: the first being »»»
Almost My Record
Downloading music online is growing at a rapid pace, so it's no surprise that Lyric Street decided to release a digital-only package for new artist Sarah Buxton.
Buxton, taking the experience in stride, aptly named it "Almost My Record," and with just five generally contemporary country tunes, there's no room for filler. Buxton wrote Keith Urban's "Stupid Boy" and includes her version. It's much more convincing with a female voice narrating the story of a »»»
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: The Mavericks scorch the night
With temperatures plunging outside to single digits and the streets of downtown wallowing in piles of the omnipotent white stuff, it's a good thing that The Mavericks decided to play inside.
Only it wasn't so much the thermostat that warmed up the night. More like the opening night of The Mavericks' Mono Mundo Tour, which worked on a... »»»
Concert Review: Wy rocks the house
Although Wynonna arrived on stage 25 minutes late with no explanation, her nearly two hour set of songs and stories more than atoned for her tardiness. Billed as "Wynonna and Friends: Stories & Song," there was no shortage of stories, as Wynonna is a really talker. But there was also no shortage of fine songs either.
Wynonna opened with a... »»»

Some in the mainstream country audience may only know Angaleena Presley as one of the two other

The last time Kenny Roby assembled 6 String Drag to record a new studio album, Bill Clinton had just handily secured his second term as president.

The first album by James McMurtry in six years proves that some simply get better with age.

In the Instagram era where people use apps to turn digital snapshots into sepia-toned portraits, Steve Earle's 16th studio release finds its place with an old-school sound. It's a Polaroid of rural country, blues and bluegrass frozen in time. But instead of outdated, it plays on the nostalgia of its modern audience. »»»
