Do You Know Me: A Tribute to George Jones CD review - Do You Know Me: A Tribute to George Jones
Every male country singer worth his salt has been influenced by George Jones who died in April 2013; if not vocally, at the very least because of respect for country traditions and love of a fine song. Few, however, have the skills to sing as much like Jones as Sammy Kershaw can. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Kershaw has that whole sincerity thing down pat. For the most part, Kershaw mainly sticks to the most familiar Jones songs. He even has the guts to cover "He Stopped »»»
A Sammy Klaus Christmas CD review - A Sammy Klaus Christmas
It's appropriate Sammy Kershaw decorated the CD cover of his new Christmas album with artwork that looks like it was created by a child. This is because the music contained within is equally simple and unpretentious. Kershaw never gets too fancy with the arrangements to these songs. They're all relatively basic country, with only essential and necessary instrumentation on each track. In between the opening reading of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas and the concluding »»»
Homecoming CD review - Homecoming
With a album titled "Homecoming," one may conjure up thoughts of days long gone behind us and the hopes of rekindling some of those old emotions and feelings as we go back to reminisce. That is exactly what Joe Diffie has done with his label debut. Diffie has long been a staple in country music, charting 12 number 1 songs and writing several other hit songs for other country artists as well. He did, however, cut his teeth in bluegrass as a young man. Diffie returns to this genre here, »»»
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. »»»

For the first time, he... »»»
