Pride A Tribute to Charley Pride CD review - Pride A Tribute to Charley Pride
When discussions of great classic country voices and legacies come about, it's always names like Williams, Nelson, Cash and Jennings that get bandied about. And while there's good reason for those, one would be remiss to forget the influence of Charley Pride as well. A three-time Grammy winner with 29 number 1 hits under his belt, Pride's influence to the world of country music is oftentimes overlooked, but no less present. That influence hit heavy with longtime country star Neal »»»
Pride: A Tribute to Charley Pride CD review - Pride: A Tribute to Charley Pride
Today, Charley Pride may be most known for blazing a trail as an African-American country singer in the segregation era, but he deserves to be remembered as a star country singer, not just a star African-American country singer. He was, after all, one of the most successful acts of his time, with a string of hits that any singer would envy. Pride's run of hit singles listed from the mid-1960s through the '80s, and he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2000. »»»
XII CD review - XII
After seven years without a studio album, Neal McCoy has been quite busy of late. First came a collaboration with jazz orchestra leader Les Brown Jr., and now comes his first country record since 2005's "That's Life." To help make his return, McCoy has enlisted dome big time players, in the form of producers Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton and Brent Rowan. While McCoy was a reliable hitmaker in the '90s, he was most known for good-natured, novelty songs and an exciting live show. »»»
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: The Surly Gentlemen prove anything but – For about the past six months, veteran bluegrassers Clay Hess, formerly of Kentucky Thunder, and Tim Shelton of NewFound Road, along with Clay's son Brennan, have collectively been The Surly Gentlemen. The trio's sound is probably best described as stripped down bluegrass meets singer/songwriter. These Surly Gents have been playing small... »»»
Concert Review: Isbell shines – Jason Isbell was in a jubilant mood shortly after taking the stage at the Anaheim House of Blues' recently relocated new location. Now situated in a shopping strip called the GardenWalk, yet still close to the Disney theme parks, Isbell later humorously noted how the area is so clean. He even referred to it as a "tiny Toronto.... »»»

Universal Favorite CD review - Universal Favorite
Noam Pikelny is the most ingratiating musical iconoclast you're likely to come across. He has deep roots in the Americana genre, and his playing, on banjo in most contexts, is precise and brilliant. Pikelny has produced a string of outstanding solo records, most recently "Universal Favorite."  »»»
Vaquero CD review - Vaquero
Independent singer/songwriter Aaron Watson's "Vaquero" is an ambitious 16-song mix of Texas country and mainstream Nashville with mostly good results. The strongest tracks are those that embrace the Tex Mex style of the title track, which imparts some sound advice delivered by an "old Mexican cowboy" the singer meets in a bar ("don't live your life like a sad country song/ A fool on a stool still a fool right or wrong"). »»»
