CD reviews for Sarah Buxton

Sarah Buxton CD review - 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 CD review - 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: Perhaps not country, but Urban stars – After Keith Urban scorched a version of "Days Go By," a man in his mid-50s in a Led Zeppelin T shirt said to his rhinestone clad lady friend, "This is not country music, that guy's a rock star." Indeed, the chart topping Aussie further contributes to country's multiple personality disorder, but in a category other than pop.... »»»
Concert Review: Loveless translates her sound well – Once upon a time, Lydia Loveless was part of the country, maybe alt.-country movement, but over time the Ohio-based singer has strayed further from those roots. That was made ever more clear by her rocking - with edge - performance on this evening. That's not to say that there's anything wrong with Loveless' direction - it's just... »»»

Gunslinger CD review - Gunslinger
If naming your release "Gunslinger," you'd better let it rip and go for a harder country sound, especially if donning a black cowboy hat on the cover. The reality does not exactly match that sentiment for Garth Brooks, but at times he comes mighty close. »»»
Christmas Together CD review - Christmas Together
Listening to Garth Brooks' and Trisha Yearwood's new holiday album of (mostly) duets, one is once again reminded how Yearwood is one of the most underrated country artists, whereas - if we're being honest - Brooks is a little on the overrated side. »»»
The Life and Songs of Emmylou Harris CD review - The Life and Songs of Emmylou Harris
Perhaps no artist is so ingrained in the very fibre of modern Americana more than Emmylou Harris. Her presence is everywhere - in the music she makes on her own, in the music she shares with others, in the music that feature finds her simply settled in the background sharing supporting vocals or merely lending inspiration. »»»
Mountain Voodoo CD review - Mountain Voodoo
Balsam Range has been at the heart of mainstream bluegrass music since its debut in 2007. "Mountain Voodoo" is an ambitious, and successful, summation of the first decade. Vocal harmonies provide the core of Balsam Range's music. It's mountain music, to be sure, with lots of vocal range. »»»
