CD reviews for The Watson Twins

Smoke Fire CD review - Smoke Fire
Nearly two years after the release of their acclaimed collaboration with Jenny Lewis ("Rabbit Fur Coat"), the Watson Twins step out of Lewis' considerable musical shadow with this solid solo release. Leigh and Chandra Watson deliver a set of harmony-rich coffeehouse tunes that is both soulful and sweet. Fire Songs" alternates between mid-tempo strummers (Dig a Little Deeper and Bar Woman Blues) and torchy ballads (How Am I to Be and Fall). The standout track is Sky Open Up, a »»»
Southern Manners CD review - Southern Manners
"I doubt if the texture of Southern life is any more grotesque than that of the rest of the nation," Flannery O'Connor told students at Notre Dame in 1957. Probably true. But there certainly is something in the southern air that seems to push an inquisitive spirit toward haunted storytelling. Fifty years after O'Connor's speech, the Watson Twins prove on this eight-song EP that they share the famous author's gothic sensibilities and interest in the shadowed corners of lineage. »»»
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: Cantrell continues to satisfy – Laura Cantrell may never be a country star. Not at this stage of her career when she's 50, touring here and there and releasing new music every few years or so. But five albums in, Cantrell continues as a warm, enjoyable and worthy purveyor of her brand of country. That would mean going towards a more traditional side, not rushing the songs... »»»
Concert Review: Not only is Turner traditional, he's popular – Every time Josh Turner reached for some of those wonderful subterranean low notes, which he often pulled out during his enjoyable night show, it was like a superhero applying a superpower. He didn't need this extra advantage to please his audience; he has so many quality songs stockpiled in his catalogue already doing the job.... »»»

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.

"Boys from Back Home" is Scotty McCreery's amalgamation of Kenny Chesney's "I Go Back" and "Boys of Fall," which even borrows words from each hit song to create something attempting to be new. It's not new. »»»

With a group history that spans over 50 years, gospel and country music mainstays The Oak Ridge Boys are at a place when they could conceivably rest on their laurels, release a few greatest hits records and coast the rest of the way through their careers, and fans would still be pleased. »»»
Right or Wrong CD review - Right or Wrong

Dave Adkins stepped to the plate and swung for the fences. His monster swing found the sweet spot and delivered a game-winning home run. "Right or Wrong" is filled with hot picking, great vocal presentations and a risk or two that absolutely pay off. If Adkins was trying to outshine previous releases, he may have done so.  »»»

Staggered CD review - Staggered
East Nashville may be known as "the" Americana hotbed these days, but some of the talent there is very much verging on rock 'n roll. This is the case with Lynn Taylor & the BarFlies on their third release, a collection of personal tunes by the front man. »»»
