Spark CD review - Spark
Drake White is one of those artists who hasn't found the express elevator to fame, but signs show he'll get there gradually nonetheless. Opening for Eric Church and Zac Brown has helped spread the word for the Northern Alabama native.

Lane assumes mantle of "Highway Queen" For most artists, eight years is a fair amount of time in their careers.

Until My Voice Goes Out CD review - Until My Voice Goes Out
Josh Abbott Band opens its album "Until My Voice Goes Out" with the title track, which features the unique combination of stately strings along with plucked banjo. In one respect, it's a love song about the desire for a specific woman. »»»
