Harris/Crowell join together finally, Mavericks return

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 – Long time friends Emmylou Harris finally joined forces to release "Old Yellow Moon," their first ever CD together. Bryan Ahern produced the dozen songs. While this may be the first time that Crowell and Harris have recorded as equals, Crowell was a member of Harri's Hot Band about three decades ago.

The Mavericks are back with "In Time," the band's first disc since reuniting and putting out "The Mavericks" in 2004. The disc contains 14 songs including a Spanish version of "Ven Hacia Mi (Come Unto Me)," sung in Spanish by Raul Malo.

Wayne Hancock goes for "Ride" out today on Bloodshot. He co-produced the music with Lloyd Maines. Hancock first burst onto the scene in 1995 with "Thunderstorms and Neon Signs."

Canadian-born, American-raised singer Jaida Dryer is out with her debut, "I Am Jaida Dreyer," produced by Tim McGraw.

Hey! Merry Christmas! CD review - Hey! Merry Christmas!
Sometimes, musicians create holiday albums, and it's obvious to the listener the act is breaking character. Maybe they just want to make a buck off the seasonal experience, so they'll put on ill-fitting red clothes and play the part. With "Hey! Merry Christmas!" by The Mavericks, though, one finds another fine album by the group, which just happens to be comprised of songs that concern Christmas. For example, the title track is a piano-pumping, rockabilly Jerry Lee Lewis throwback. »»»
The Traveling Kind CD review - The Traveling Kind
Listening to Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell sing together on "The Traveling Kind," their second recent duet album together, is like visiting with old friends. Crowell is a seasoned songwriter, while Harris is relatively new - but nevertheless a quick study - to the writing game, and the songwriting is strong on this album, from start to finish. The moods range from weepy country ballads, like "No Memories Hanging Round," to more upbeat tracks, such as the chugging »»»
Mono CD review - Mono
The Mavericks returned in 2013 with an acclaimed new album and much touring after nearly a decade's absence. Here they are back again in 2015, minus one of their founding members, but with another dynamite new effort. The group announced in December 2014 that it had kicked out bassist Robert Reynolds from the band because he had developed an opiate addiction and was allegedly soliciting money from fans to support his habit. Reynolds is not listed as a contributor in the liner notes for »»»
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: Bentley brings the A-listers – Dierks Bentley's Valentine's Day "Burning Man World 2019 Tour" stop celebrated his album, "The Mountain," one of his best full-lengths to date. That album's so good, in fact, one was left wishing he'd included even more of it in his setlist. Those album tracks he did sing, though, stood up well among his many hits.... »»»
Concert Review: Lula Wiles is on the verge – Lula Wiles is on the verge. This three-piece folk-Americana band composes and performs music with skill and assurance.

Although Cassadee Pope's "Stage" album includes a few too many pop-country songs for comfort, it closes with a true winner. The ballad "I've Been Good," which turns a customary greeting response on its head, is a true show-stopper. »»»
