It's About Time CD review - It's About Time
After 70 million records and 100 charting singles, does Hank Jr. have anything left to prove? Nope, but it is after all, a family tradition - so here he is, at age 66, with his first release on a new label exclusive to Hall of Famer types (Reba, Martina McBride), looking to strike gold one more time. The Bocephus blueprint hasn't changed much since the late '80s. We've come to expect guest stars, loads of songwriters and a dip into the great American music catalog. »»»
Old School, New Rules CD review - Old School, New Rules
Hank Williams Jr. is one of those people who are as famous for their personality as their music. He has never been shy about expressing his particular opinion about anything. Bocephus never lets a chance to flaunt his political ideals pass, and his latest album is his most passionately right wing to date. The irony of the political focus is that Bocephus uses the image of the "working man" to serve as the choir for his sermon, much like Bruce Springsteen's magnificent »»»
127 Rose Avenue
Conjuring his trademark Southern rock and country blues sound, Hank Williams Jr. mines areas familiar to longtime fans. In the process, he delivers an album that boasts characteristic poignancy and drive, but occasionally falls flat. The most disappointing moments occur when the 60-year-old Williams proves too winded to convincingly chant the rapid-fire lyrics of Farm Song. The vigilantism implied in Sounds Like Justice plays out distastefully and his southern rocker about a sexy gold-digger, High »»»
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: Richey needn't chase any more – The opening lines of Kim Richey's "Chase Wild Horses," one of the best tracks on her excellent new CD, "Edgeland," starts with the lines: "I don't chase wild horses any more/I'm all done running from the way I was before Things I've done that I ain't proud of / I can't even stand the sound of I... »»»
Concert Review: Johnson, Mike & the Moonpies show traditional country is alive and well – Cody Johnson is not your typical mainstream country artist. He self-releases his albums, and instead of putting out rock and pop songs (disguised to look country), he records real, diehard Texas country music. And it was heartening to see and hear his loyal Los Angeles fanbase sing along with nearly ever song. His show tonight transformed this former... »»»

Tyminski goes dark Dan Tyminski (known simply as "Tyminski" on his 2017 release "Southern Gothic") has traditional music roots and unassailable bluegrass street cred especially given his membership in Alison Krauss' Union Station.

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno.

Apparently someone to forgot to tell Joshua Hedley that country music has passed him by. Where does Hedley, aka apparently known as the Mayor of Lower Broad, come off to incorporating honky tonk, Texas swing, western swing and countrypolitan all in the first three songs of his debut?  »»»

Dave Cobb produced "Volunteer" for Old Crow Medicine Show, and while word on the street was that this promised to be a more rocking, less roots music effort, such talk shouldn't dissuade fans of the group's established sound from checking it out.  »»»
The Tree of Forgiveness CD review - The Tree of Forgiveness
Mortality is very much on the mind of John Prine on this, his first album of all-new songs in 13 years. Understandably. After all, this is a man who has survived lung cancer and squamous cell cancer, the latter of which took a toll on his vocal cords. He's also had two knee replacements and a hip replacement. »»»

Paco is the name of Tim Easton's Gibson J-45, which he bought for $100 and a couple of trade-ins 30 years ago. The name was bestowed on the guitar in Paris by a Deadhead. It's been Easton's best traveling companion and songwriting aid. »»»
Find a Light CD review - Find a Light
Blackberry Smoke will never fit the mold of a mainstream country act the way, say, Midland has done. They love to rock way too much to ever tamp it down permanently. And the aptly named "The Crooked Kind" follows a rollicking, rock & roll path that feels like just the right road. »»»
