Faith Hill guests on Project Runway finale

Wednesday, April 21, 2010 – Faith Hill will join host Heidi Klum and judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia on the season finale of Project Runway this Thursday, April 22 at 10 p.m. Eastern on the Lifetime Network.

"Faith Hill stepped into the toughest Project Runway guest judging seat of the season - the finale, which made her a deciding voice in naming the winner," said 'Runway' Executive Producer Sara Rea. "She took on the task with flying colors. Faith was invested and took the job seriously. She gave constructive, relevant criticism and had a strong point of view. We really enjoyed having her."

"What I saw was truly extraordinary and it made judging very difficult," said Hill. "All of the designers were creative and imaginative. But there were some whose craftsmanship was impeccable. Designers by trade, are always capable of sewing their own clothing, but the tailoring that I saw was extremely impressive; a few in particular knocked me out. The passion that these individuals showed, and their eagerness to learn from feedback and criticism, should prove an inspiration for those that follow them."

CD reviews for Faith Hill

Joy to the World CD review - Joy to the World
Faith Hill's first Christmas album is an uptown affair, rather than any down home celebration. Making this point from the very outset, the opening title cut features a full adult choir and orchestra. Furthermore, Hill is dressed for the ball in a beautiful red gown on the disc's front cover. The first time Hill steers away from overly philharmonic-ready material, she heads straight for swing town with horns a plenty on both Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town. and Holly Jolly Christmas. »»»
The Hits CD review - The Hits
Finally, after 14 years in the recording business and more than 30 charting songs, Faith Hill released a greatest hits plus package. The songs go all the way from "Wild One" and "Piece of My Heart," her first two singles ever from 1993 and 1994 with both going number one up to "Mississippi Girl" from 2005 plus a few new songs. Hill had more of a country vibe starting out, but grew progressively pop (the new and catchy, but not very country "Red Umbrella"). »»»
Fireflies CD review - Fireflies
Faith Hill stayed so far from her country roots with 2003's "Cries" that she laid an egg on country radio. The album was so pop that there was nothing for radio to play. Hill did not make the same mistake twice as there is a significant amount of country instrumentation starting with the Dan Dugmore banjo and Stuart Duncan mandolin on the lead off "Sunshine and Summertime." The autobiographical and well delivered hit single, "Mississippi Girl," written in part by John Rich, who had a hand in 3 of »»»
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 Surly Gentlemen prove anything but – For about the past six months, veteran bluegrassers Clay Hess, formerly of Kentucky Thunder, and Tim Shelton of NewFound Road, along with Clay's son Brennan, have collectively been The Surly Gentlemen. The trio's sound is probably best described as stripped down bluegrass meets singer/songwriter. These Surly Gents have been playing small... »»»
Concert Review: Isbell shines – Jason Isbell was in a jubilant mood shortly after taking the stage at the Anaheim House of Blues' recently relocated new location. Now situated in a shopping strip called the GardenWalk, yet still close to the Disney theme parks, Isbell later humorously noted how the area is so clean. He even referred to it as a "tiny Toronto.... »»»

Gibson Brothers rise up from "In the Ground" There's no more solid live bluegrass show than the Gibson Brothers. They play with great technical skill and crispness.

The Drugstore Gypsies CD review - The Drugstore Gypsies
In a time when good old fashioned electric guitar rock has grown a bit stagnant, a fresh new quintet from Texas is stepping up to provide a jolt courtesy of a concise and confident debut that makes a case for the genre by adding touches of blues, country and southern rock to muscular classic rock riffs. »»»
Universal Favorite CD review - Universal Favorite
Noam Pikelny is the most ingratiating musical iconoclast you're likely to come across. He has deep roots in the Americana genre, and his playing, on banjo in most contexts, is precise and brilliant. Pikelny has produced a string of outstanding solo records, most recently "Universal Favorite."  »»»
Vaquero CD review - Vaquero
Independent singer/songwriter Aaron Watson's "Vaquero" is an ambitious 16-song mix of Texas country and mainstream Nashville with mostly good results. The strongest tracks are those that embrace the Tex Mex style of the title track, which imparts some sound advice delivered by an "old Mexican cowboy" the singer meets in a bar ("don't live your life like a sad country song/ A fool on a stool still a fool right or wrong"). »»»
Graveyard Whistle CD review - Graveyard Whistle
Old 97s' "Graveyard Whistling" is a slight return to form after 2014's "Most Messed Up," which was heavy on profanity, but far too light on charming country songs. "Graveyard Whistling" is a little more innocent and a lot more fun than its predecessor. "Bad Luck Charm," for instance, finds lead vocalist Rhett Miller playing a familiar role - that of lovable loser.  »»»
