Merry Christmas EP
Dylan Scott's star is shining bright these days, with his self-titled full debut scoring high with fans while its hit song, "My Girl," topped the chart.

And for Scott's fans, there's plenty to enjoy here. Scott's vocals are rich and homey, colored with just enough of that deep country twang to keep »»»
Dylan Scott isn't breaking any ground with "Deluxe Edition." It doesn't say anything new or unique in the genre of country. That being said, many tracks are catchy and stand out solely for being fun to listen to.
"My Girl" is an example of this dichotomy. Although the hit love song leads the album, its contents are a little shallow. You can tell the titular girl is cool because she likes Jesus and sports and looks pretty without make-up on, and she »»»
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).

Concert Review: LSD tour provides a lot of highs
This was not your grandkids' country, that's for sure. Even the name of the tour - the LSD Tour - was a throwback (albeit far before the principals were making music). But make no mistake about it.

Concert Review: Alvin, Gilmore fortunately get together
Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore had known each other for decades, but it wasn't until last year that they toured together in a guitar pull setting. What started as a small Texas tour mushroomed into points east and west and eventually the release earlier this month of their blues-based disc, "Downey to Lubbock."
And now we have the... »»»

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.

Legends don't come any more legendary than Chris Hillman. The roll call of bands that comprises Hillman's half century in music reads like a wing exhibit at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame; Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas, the Souther Hillman Furay Band, the Desert Rose Band,... »»»
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. »»»
