McBride rides again

Friday, February 3, 2017 – Terry McBride, the former frontman for '90s country group McBride & the Ride, is back after a 20-year hiatus with a solo project, "Hotels and Highways," out via MV2 Entertainment on Feb. 24.

Born of the Texas songwriter tradition, McBride had a successful career with McBride & the Ride in the early '90s before spending his time as a songwriter. He has penned songs for Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Kenny Rogers and George Strait to artists along with Alan Jackson and Brooks & Dunn, including the duo's last chart topper "Play Something Country" and "If You See Him/If You See Her," a song they did with McEntire.

McBride, 58, co-wrote every cut on "Hotels and Highways."

Concert Review: Williams brings the joy back – It's not as if Lucinda Williams has been idle. Far from it this year, but 20 years on, Williams decided to trot out her masterpiece "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road" as the centerpiece of her tour. Music and artist have held up exceedingly well. Williams had always been a well thought of performer, although she was not too big when it came... »»»
