– Indie roots rock band Yarn has released the music video for Annie,
the newest single from "Almost Home," which came out in March.

CD reviews for Yarn
Despite three previous albums and a sound so mainstream it could cover as much turf as a trans-continental highway, Yarn have yet to create the bigger buzz necessary to bring them widespread notoriety. Granted, it could have something to do with their name; neither descriptive nor tantalizing nor specific to any particular sound or sensibility, it's a handle so lackluster, it all but ensures obscurity.

Concert Review: McGraw, Hill keep it fresh and relevant
Tim McGraw singing his emotional "Live Like You Were Dying" has been the cathartic capstone of the country singer's concerts for over a decade now. This principle held true again during the latter part of McGraw's performance with wife Faith Hill during a stop on their Soul2Soul tour.

Concert Review: Petty and the Heartbreakers get better with age
For a 40th anniversary run, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers got off to a bit of a curious start. Instead of picking one of the better known songs from the group's 1976 self-titled debut, Petty and friends opted for "Rockin' Around (With You)." A bit disjointed musically, it was almost out of place for what would transpire over the next few hours.... »»»
