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.

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).

Concert Review: Sun shines on Miami Valley 'grass fest
The third annual Miami Valley Bluegrass Heritage Festival was unlike either of the previous two. For two years, Mother Nature picked the same Saturday in September to unleash wind and rain on the bluegrassers gathered, but this year, she was in a pleasant mood. Sunny skies and a light breeze were welcomed proving that the third time is the charm.... »»»

The Grascals woke up early, well "Before Breakfast" to serve up a generous 12-course meal of hearty bluegrass with a little bit of gospel mixed in for spice. The result is tasty, another recipe that shows why the band has been nominated for multiple Grammy awards. »»»
Right off the bat, the title of Old Dominion's album "Happy Endings" is far better than "Meat and Candy," its prior effort. ("Meat" in an album title? Really?) But also on an artistic level, OD's follow-up shows signs of growth. With that said, though, there's nothing on this new release as immediately catchy as "Snapback." »»»
