Here to Stay CD review - Here to Stay
From the opening notes of "Mountain Man," the first cut of Adam Steffey's "Here To Stay," the message is clear: here's some unapologetic mountain music, with a good dose of modern sensibility. The notes are clear, the lyrics defiant; Steffey is not only "Here To Stay," but here to play. Steffey is one of the finest mandolin players of his generation. He's played with Alison Kraus and Mountain Heart (among others). His currently performance gig is as »»»

The Boxcars underwent their first major personnel change in the summer of 2014 when founding member John Bowman departed to devote more time to his expanding ministry.

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: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener.

The name Turnpike Troubadours suggests traveling music. Strap yourself in and get ready for an exhilarating ride. This Oklahoma-based roots-rock unit soars on its fourth release. Not to diminish the strong songwriting from leader Evan Felker, it's the band's pulsating musicianship with an array of electric instruments combined with fiddle and pedal steel that makes the sound so arresting. »»»
