Tradition Lives
To say that Mark Chestnutt walks the walk is an understatement. Long before the rise of bro country, Chestnutt's 1998 cover of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want To Miss Thing" hit number 1, but after that, his career stalled. More than a decade later, "Tradition Lives" is an aptly titled 13-song effort that never veers from the old school path. There is no title track, which underscores the idea that the collection is a cohesive theme and not lead single driven. »»»
Savin' the Honky Tonk
Theme albums never really caught on in C&W, but Mark Chesnutt might just change that with his label debut. After all, just about every track here concerns alcohol consumption and the joy of gin joints. Oh sure, there's a couple love songs here ("Would These Arms Be In Your Way" wherein Lee Ann Womack lends her vocal talents) and a cheatin' song or two ("A Hard Secret to Keep"), but for the most part it's all aqua vitae all the time. Whether it's praise for the plethora of products available at »»»
Mark Chesnutt
Self-titled albums are usually the sign of a new, emerging artist on the scene, but Mark Chesnutt is anything but a new face. Although some would say he came in on the back end of the late-'80s wave that crested with Clint Black, Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson, the fact is that Chesnutt has spent the last decade being one of the most consistently good - and most consistently successful - pure singers in the country music business. Like his fellow Texans George Strait and George Jones (who also »»»
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: In crazy times, a little Williams joy endures – Nearly a week before the inauguration President-elect Donald Trump, Lucinda Williams served notice she's set on counting her blessings (opening her concert with "Blessed"), and determined not to let her joy be stolen by troubled times (closing with "Joy"). With a nearly two-hour set, Williams drew from all points her recording... »»»
Concert Review: Things change for McKenna, but not everything – The more things change - and in the case of Lori McKenna, that's a really good thing - the more they remain the same. Not only is that also a really good thing for McKenna, but also her fans. This was the annual rite of December for McKenna in coming to her home area of Massachusetts and playing a run of shows at the venerable club where she has... »»»

Laws of Gravity
The Infamous Stringdusters have always been difficult to categorize. That's part of their charm. Part traditional bluegrass (leaning on sound bluegrass instrumentation, namely guitar, Dobro, banjo, fiddle and standup bass), part jam band (extended sets of songs in their live shows in which one song triggers another), and wholly original with a signature sound and energy that goes on without cease. »»»
Rented Room on Broadway CD review - Rented Room on Broadway
Emerging from a latter version of The New South, over the past 16 years, Wildfire has quietly established itself as a consistent bluegrass outfit. With original members Robert Hale (guitar) and Curtis Chapman (bass) leading the way, Wildfire returns with "Rented Room on Broadway," their fifth album. John Lewis remains on banjo while bluegrass vagabonds Greg Luck (fiddle and guitar, and another J. D. Crowe alumnus) and Chris Davis (mandolin) make their recording debut. »»»
