Here's to You CD review - Here's to You
It's impossible to listen to Montgomery Gentry's "Here's to You," without also feeling sad that it's the last studio album featuring Troy Gentry, who died in a helicopter crash. When they sing, "Here's to the ones who ain't in here tonight" during "Needing a Beer" and then go on to praise fireman and cops for being elsewhere fighting crime, you may be struck by the fact that Gentry also "ain't in here tonight. »»»
Folks Like Us CD review - Folks Like Us
Where once Garth Brooks was criticized for not being country enough, today we have hip hop artists making cameos and artists like Sam Hunt topping the country charts with EDM songs. With no release since 2011's "Rebels on the Run," we see Montgomery Gentry return to a radically different country music scene than the one they were a part of at the turn of the century.

Montgomery Gentry looked like the likely candidate to take over the country duo throne when Brooks & Dunn called it quits. But they disappeared from the scene and pop stars Sugarland filled the void instead. After clearing up some label issues and dealing with the frustration of recording an album that never gets released, the guys are back to represent the rock and roll side of mainstream country.

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: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why. Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
