The two new songs - "Follow The Lights" and "My Love For You Is Real" - will both be featured prominently in this fall's season of the ABC prime-time drama "October Road" (airing 10 p.m. on Mondays).

The complete sequence for Follow The Lights is:
1. Follow The Lights (new song)
2. My Love For You Is Real (new song)
3. Blue Hotel (first official release, recorded live in studio)
4. Dear John (live in studio)
5. This Is It (Cardinals version, live in studio)

CD reviews for Ryan Adams

Easy Tiger CD review - Easy Tiger
Ryan Adams is a freak. Every other week - it seems - there's a new Adams release, and each is different from the one before. This shows he is also getting good at making stylistic wardrobe changes, too. "Tears Of Gold" is pedal steel country, while "Pearls On A String" rolls bluegrass-y with its prominent banjo. He can be vocally gravelly and world weary one moment, then suddenly switch to a Rufus Wainwright-like falsetto as he does on "Two Hearts. »»»
29 CD review - 29
Madness, sadness, love, crime, death, hope, drugs, booze and religion. Ryan Adams wrote the songs throughout his tumultuous and confusing twenties. It's a compelling confusion - full of complex stories and recurring themes that fit a cohesive concept. A track that would have fit Adams' 2005 albums recorded with the Cardinals, "Carolina Rain" is all pedal steel and Southern Gothic storytelling. But "29" is a solo effort, with producer Ethan Johns providing most of the »»»
Jacksonville City Nights CD review - Jacksonville City Nights
You'd think an artist as prolific as Ryan Adams has been in the last few years would find it difficult to stick to a certain kind of genre over the course of an album. And indeed, his sprawling major-label debut, "Gold," included everything from a Stones-y rave up to soulful ballads tinged with Van Morrison. After spelunking into 1990s style rock on "Rock n Roll" and dirgeful melodrama on "Love Is Hell," however, Adams is making some of the most focused - and best - music of his career. »»»
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: Carlile brings thoughtfulness – Brandi Carlile returned to the GRAMMY Museum for the third time, and it's easy to see why she's always invited back. The evening began with GRAMMY Executive Scott Goldman interviewing Carlile on a pair of stuffed chairs, which was followed directly by a brief set of live songs. The interview portion was informative, while Carlile's... »»»
Concert Review: Twain thrives on eye candy visuals, music – Shania Twain TD Garden, Boston July 11, 2018 Early on during her Now Tour stop, Shania Twain uttered the oft-said lines that so many artists tell the faithful - this is a night to forget about everything else and just have a night of fun. In Twain's case, that might have been a most accurate sentiment because her show was designed with... »»»

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.

Circus of Life CD review - Circus of Life
"Circus of Life," the title of Kinky Friedman's album, is a little misleading. It conjures up images of carnival barkers and circus freaks and songs as odd as its cigar-manufacturing, politically-astute novelist author/songwriter. The album is far more sensitive than that title suggests, though. In fact, it's a welcome respite from modern day circus-like life. »»»
Outlaws 'Til The End: Vol. 1 CD review - Outlaws 'Til The End: Vol. 1
Many mainstream country artists will point to their Southern roots as proof of their country music credentials. These roots seemingly give them liberty to stray just as far from typical country music instrumentation as they like. However, how does this rule apply to Santa Barbara, Cal.'s DevilDriver, which applies its hard-rocking groove metal chops to a set of outlaw country music? »»»

Epilogue: A Tribute to John Duffey CD review - Epilogue: A Tribute to John Duffey
Not many folks are twice members of the Bluegrass Hall of Fame: John Duffey is. A legend in mandolin musicianship and lead and harmony singing, a gregarious stage personality and master of repartee and fashion sense (okay, perhaps not the latter: many remain scarred from the early '90s animal print pants)... »»»
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.  »»»
Masterpiece CD review - Masterpiece
If there's a way in which Thompson Square can partner up, they will find it. The husband/wife and singer/songwriting team has added two more badges to their collaborations: parents (a baby son was born in 2016) and independent artists (the duo parted ways with Stoney Creek Records). »»»
