NBC Sounds of the Season The Julianne Hough Holiday Collection CD review - NBC Sounds of the Season The Julianne Hough Holiday Collection
At only eight songs long, this Julianne Hough CD might as well be subtitled "Julianne Hough's Abbreviated Christmas." Saying it has eight tracks is being overly generous because the opener, Sound of Christmas is a 1:09 instrumental and Christmas Memories is merely Hough talking about childhood Christmases over music. Of the six legitimate songs, It Wasn't His Child/Mary Did You Know stands out most for being a duel-song duet with Phil Vassar. Its spiritual focus also »»»
Julianne Hough CD review - Julianne Hough
Julianne Hough has spent much of her 19 years building a successful professional dancing career. If her self-titled debut is any indication, she may have a bright future moonlighting as a country singer. The Utah native's brand of country fits squarely into the young, energetic and playful mold of contemporaries like Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Kellie Pickler with light-hearted songs like the single "That Song In My Head" and "You, You, You," which features the »»»
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: LSD tour provides a lot of highs – This was not your grandkids' country, that's for sure. Even the name of the tour - the LSD Tour - was a throwback (albeit far before the principals were making music). But make no mistake about it. With the ever cool country traditionalist Dwight Yoakam, the country with some rock and blues and rabble rousing of Steve Earle thrown in and the... »»»
Concert Review: Alvin, Gilmore fortunately get together – Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore had known each other for decades, but it wasn't until last year that they toured together in a guitar pull setting. What started as a small Texas tour mushroomed into points east and west and eventually the release earlier this month of their blues-based disc, "Downey to Lubbock." And now we have the... »»»

Bigger CD review - Bigger
Sugarland is back with "Bigger," its first studio album in nearly a decade. And its arrival says more about branding, than anything else. Although his voice is heard often enough on this album to make his presence felt, it's still difficult to get away from seeing Kristian Bush in the Oates to Hall or Ridgeley to Michael role in this duo.  »»»

There may be no other CD title this year quite as apropos as this one. Things have indeed changed for American Aquarium since their previous studio album (2015's underrated "Wolves"). For one thing 80 per cent of the band quit, leaving only lead vocalist and songwriter BJ Barham. »»»
