CD reviews for Billy Ray Cyrus

Thin Line CD review - Thin Line
Originally conceived of as a project to honor his favorite songwriters and artists, Billy Ray Cyrus found his latest outing taking on a life of its own. Infused with plenty of classic country sentiments and songs written and made popular by artists like Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings, among many others, the record shimmers with the impact and influence of those same artists as Cyrus showcases the music that he loves while making it his own.

Change My Mind CD review - Change My Mind
Change My Mind Blue Cadillac Music Reviewed by Jeff Lincoln No one can accuse Billy Ray Cyrus of not working hard enough. He's put out 12 releases (beginning with 1992's massive "Some Gave All"), all while keeping a regular TV acting slate. But he shows no sign of slowing down, and one can definitely sense that tireless quality here. There's a "more is more" philosophy coloring nearly the whole first half of the proceedings.

Back To Tennessee CD review - Back To Tennessee
A lot has happened to Billy Ray Cyrus the last few years, going from the star of the family to second fiddle thanks to daughter Hannah. But the success of Miley Cyrus has also fueled more interest in what her dad is doing. This new album begins with the title track, which is rather mainstream, middle-of-the-road country pop fodder that doesn't really grab the listener. But he gets going on Thrillbilly, with far more bite and oomph to it, a rootsy roadhouse rocker that can't fail even »»»
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: Arroyo Seco brings worthwhile heat – The following is a review of the Arroyo Seco festival, held June 24-25, 2017 With the success of Coachella, Stagecoach and FYF, Southern California is quickly becoming the music festival capitol. Add Arroyo Seco Weekend to this expanding mix, which took its maiden voyage - if you will - during a summer-hot weekend. For music fans, it was well worth braving the heat.... »»»
Concert Review: Elephant Revival becomes a headscratcher – Elephant Revival is not the easiest band to sonically pinpoint. Typically grouped in the bluegrass/jam band arena, in the live setting, the Colorado band stretched its musical boundaries. Folk and jazz overtones were part of the mix as well for the veterans. No matter the style, Elephant Revival easily absorbed and mastered the music.... »»»

Mayhayley's House CD review - Mayhayley's House
For years, Lonesome River Band was proud to be "Carrying The Tradition" of bluegrass music. Then, with last year's release they began the process of "Bridging The Tradition" of bluegrass to something a little more progressive, a little more modern. Now, "Mayhayley's House" proves that LRB is continuing across that bridge. »»»
Positively Bob Willie Nile Sings Bob Dylan CD review - Positively Bob Willie Nile Sings Bob Dylan
The reasons musicians elect to record full-album tributes are as varied as the results. Willie Nile's previous album "World War Willie" was a fiery collection of roots rock that didn't delve far from the approach that served him across 35 years as a recording artist.  »»»
The Nashville Sound CD review - The Nashville Sound
Jason Isbell's "The Nashville Sound" doesn't cause the immediate buzz of the singer/songwriter's previous efforts, so you may need to give it a little time to grow on you. But because Isbell simply doesn't make bad records, this one's just good in different ways, with a longer release cycle. »»»
So You Wanna Be An Outlaw CD review - So You Wanna Be An Outlaw
If Steve Earle had never done another album after "Guitar Town" and "Copperhead Road," he'd still have cemented his place in the musical firmament for skillfully creating a ragged and beautiful tapestry from the stray threads of rootsy rock and authentic country.  »»»
