Montevallo CD review - Montevallo
It's no secret that the genre of country music has been growing and expanding in definition over the past several years, from the bombastic arena rocking fury of early Garth Brooks to more recent days and acts like Florida Georgia Line, further blurring the lines of country and other genres. Finding traditional country themes and vibes to merge along the rivers of hip-hop, R&B and pop, the picking is ripe for rising artists like Sam Hunt and his debut recording, "Montevallo. »»»

In a well-delivered 85-minute set, Platt and The Honeycutters turned that ancient... »»»

For the second time in six weeks, Lake Street Dive was back home (the Brooklyn-based group formed at the local New England... »»»
