It's hard not to love the Oak Ridge Boys. They are American music icons with a history dating back to the mid part of the last century. The current foursome - Joe Bonsall, Duane Allen, Richard Sturban and William Lee Golden - have made music together, with the exception of Golden's temporary departure a few years back, for decades.
Who can forget their big hits from the '70s and '80s, including "Elvira," Bobby Sue," "The Y'all Com Back »»»
The Oak Ridge Boys are one of the longest-running bands in country music, and most amazingly, the quartet has the exact same membership today that it had back in 1973. They hit their peak popularity in 1981 with the Grammy-winning crossover hit "Elvira," but they still tour and record regularly today.
With their gospel roots, the Oaks are a natural fit to do a Christmas album, and they shine on spiritual Christmas classics like "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing" and "Away in a Manger. »»»
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: No wonder life is good for Shovels & Rope

Taking a second look at the two-album deal he had recently signed with the Rounder/Concord group, and then at his busy upcoming touring schedule, Jerry Douglas suddenly realized he didn't have a lot of time to waste. The first album, "Three Bells," a collaboration with fellow resophonic guitar (aka "Dobro") titans Rob Ickes of Blue Highway and the late Mike Auldridge was pretty much ready to go, the sessions having been completed shortly before Auldridge's passing in December 2012 following a lengthy struggle with cancer.... »»»
Trampled By Turtles is an indie folk group, an alt.-country band or a bluegrass act - depending on how you choose to look at them. Perhaps it's best to view the outfit as the ultimate combo platter consisting of just about everything that's good about American music. They play wonderfully, yet they also write intelligent songs that draw everyone from Townes Van Zandt to Nirvana to Ralph Stanley. It's all good, and some (or all) of these influences can be spotted in most of Trampled By Turtles' enjoyable sounds.... »»»
If you move in alt.-country/Americana circles, you simply cannot get away from the name Parker Millsap. He's certainly one of the biggest buzz artists of 2014. Better still, his self-titled album lives up to all the hype. He's a smart songwriter and a passionate singer and is essential listening for anybody looking for high quality contemporary music. Millsap also creates music appealing to a wide variety of musical tastes. You can make a case that he's a country guy, but you can also hear a lot of blues and folk. And if you attempt to put a label on him, he'll quickly tear it right off.... »»»
