Chances are good people will think they've heard an unknown Dierks Bentley song on the radio, when in fact it was actually a Craig Campbell tune. That's because Campbell sounds a whole lot like Bentley during "Never Regret." About the only chief difference between Campbell and Bentley songs, however, is how Bentley adds so much humor to his tunes. He also has a far more expressive singing voice.
One of the few places Campbell adds in some humor is during My Baby's »»»
Outta My Head
Think of Craig Campbell's "Outta My Head" EP as a batter in the on deck circle. The title track will be the lead single on his upcoming sophomore album with Bigger Picture. Coming in at just over 16 minutes, its brevity is matched only by its catchiness. Each of the five tracks has lead single potential. Styles range from the reggae tinged My Baby's Daddy to the rocking Keep Them Kisses Comin.'
Having spent time playing with Tracy Byrd, Campbell is cut from the traditionalist cloth. »»»
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: All for the Hall: thanks to Harris, Gill, no ordinary guitar pull
This all-star benefit concert for the Country Music Hall Of Fame may have been likened to a Nashville living room guitar pull, but this was certainly no ordinary guitar pull. The evening's acoustic show featured Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris Jason Mraz and Heart. It amounted to a wonderful evening of stories and songs.

To take a page from Judy Collins' notebook, Lydia Loveless has seen life from both sides now. After a childhood in tiny Coshocton, Ohio, a move to Columbus and a gig playing bass in her family's new wave/rock band as a teenager, Loveless set out on her own musical path at the age of 17. In 2010, the 20-year-old Loveless released her debut album, "The Only Man," which was critically acclaimed but just barely heard by the general public.... »»»
Mary Chapin Carpenter's songs have always transcended the mundane, whether through the introspective songs about life and death on albums like "The Age of Miracles" or "The Calling" or in the humorous ways she laughs at fate in songs such as I Feel Lucky
or The Bug
in order to show the chinks in our mortal facades. Her music has often helped us get beyond ourselves to see the places where real meaning lies, whether we decide to embrace such meaning or not.... »»»
It's the Voice. Rhonda Vincent has been wrapping her soaring, golden-throated vocals around bluegrass tunes for a couple of decades now. The International Bluegrass Association named her Female Vocalist of the Year seven years running (2000-2006), and named her IBMA Entertained of the Year in 2001. From 2002-2006, Vincent carried home the Entertainer of the Year award from The Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass (SPBGMA). Early in her career, Vincent also recorded a couple of country albums, before returning to bluegrass. Yet, it was always her voice that gave every project its power, beauty, and character.... »»»
