The Cedar Creek Sessions CD review - The Cedar Creek Sessions
Picture Kris Kristofferson in your mind, and he's likely not a young man. There's probably a salt-and-pepper beard and a wizened look on a lined face that's seen its share of tavern punches. But it's hard to wrap one's head around the concept of the actor/songwriter today at 80. Slowing down has never been in the Texas troubadour's blood, though. And so we come to this 2016 double-album recording of a frantic, mostly-live recording session in Austin from 20214. »»»
Feeling Mortal CD review - Feeling Mortal
Even in his youngest days when he was starting out, Kris Kristofferson always managed to sound older than his age. His gruff vocals and his tattered tales, told from the perspective of world-weary souls travelling desolate roads in search of redemption, made songs such as The Pilgrim, Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down, Help Me Make It Through The Night and, yes, Me and Bobby McGee testament to those all the worse for the wear. It's not surprising then, at the ripe old age of 76, »»»
Closer To The Bone CD review - Closer To The Bone
There's a certain something in "Closer to the Bone" that just might make your eyes well up or put a knot in your stomach. It is in the subtlety beautiful guitar work of the late Stephen Bruton, the longtime Kristofferson band member to whom the album is dedicated. And it's also, of course, in the sad, reflective words the celebrated songwriter has penned, but it's the 73-year-old's unmistakable voice, which has aged well and become old-country-singer-enhanced through »»»
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: Combs shows he has something to offer – Luke Combs rode very high into Beantown. After all, he played a show that sold-out a 2,500-person venue super fast. And the North Carolina native appeared during the same week he scored his second consecutive chart topper, "When It Rains It Pours." But Combs didn't rest on his laurels during a satisfying show. Combs may wear a baseball... »»»
Concert Review: The Lone Bellow retain live power – The Lone Bellow did something a little different with each of their three releases - their latest, "Walk Into a Storm," was recorded in Nashville where they now live and produced by uber producer Dave Cobb - but one things remains consistent. When it comes to the live stage, The Lone Bellow put it all together. For The Lone Bellow, the... »»»

With Stanley and Watson, sound isn't elementary Those aware of the late Owsley "Bear" Stanley likely know him for one of two reasons - his pioneering work manufacturing lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in San Francisco during the mid-to-late 1960s and his role as an innovative sound engineer. Most notably, Bear worked...... »»»

Texoma Shore CD review - Texoma Shore
Blake Shelton's 11th studio album finds The Voice advisor in a contented, one might even say homey, frame of mind. The opening track and first single "I'll Name the Dogs" sets the tone. It's a rollicking ode to domesticity that manages to make household chore distribution ("You find the spot and I'll find the money / You be the pretty and I'll be the funny") both romantic and amusing.  »»»
Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts CD review - Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts
Kenny Chesney's "Live in No Shoes Nation" accurately recreates an experience of seeing the diminutive party animal live. Chesney has found an extremely lucrative niche as country music's Jimmy Buffett (although much of Buffett's island-y pop music appeals to many of today's non-discerning country music listeners). »»»
