Featured Interviews

Jaime Wyatt is a fantastic country singer that has just released her third album, "Feel Good," and is currently on her first headlining tour. This trek has taken her to places and venues where she's never played before and has been a heartening success.
Rodney Crowell's career is littered with butterfly-effect decisions that, in retrospect, represent life-altering milestones along the singer/songwriter's star-crossed path. If the Houston native hadn't moved to Nashville at age 22, he wouldn't have been discovered by Jerry Reed...
Steve Earle pays tribute to one of his mentors and heroes, Jerry Jeff Walker, on "Jerry Jeff," which follows his "GUY" tribute to Guy Clark and "TOWNES" tribute to Townes Van Zandt. Earle has called these projects a necessary form of therapy, as each of these great artists have passed on.
The title track to James McMurtry's "The Horses and the Hounds" plays out like one of those great running songs, namely Merle Haggard's "The Fugitive." "Lord I've been running for so long I just can't find a way back home," McMurtry sings, in that enjoyable deadpan vocal tone of his. When the Haggard song is mentioned, though, McMurtry responds, "I don't really remember.

By their own admission Track45 hails from a town that is "big enough for a WalMart and a Waffle House, but not a Target or a Starbucks." Ironically, Meridian, Miss. (population (41,148) is the birthplace of the father of country music, Jimmy Rodgers. The harmony-driven sibling trio of Track45 includes Ben Johnson and his infectiously bubbly sisters Jenna and KK.

Considering that it was the day after Tax Day in Massachusetts, add a great show by Brothers Osborne to taxes and death to life's certainties. Both TJ and John Osborne indicated during the 90-minute show before about 4,000 fans that they loved Boston (TJ was glad to catch a Red Sox matinee game ...

Better than average Ferrell becomes truly memorable

Sierra Ferrell's better than average concert became truly memorable about two-thirds of the way through: the moment she was joined by actor John C. Reilly (wearing a black with red trim outfit from "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story). Once saddled up next to Ferrell, who was also wearing a ...

Josiah and the Bonnevilles finds his stride

Life hasn't exactly been all that easy for former American Idol contestant Josiah Leming. That was a long time ago for the person behind the non-existent band Josiah and the Bonnevilles, who was in town for a sold-out show as part of The Endurance Tour. So were three record label deals that went ...

A humble Barber better get used to acclaim

Sam Barber may not be a big, ego guy jumping all over the stage. So, it's almost surprising to see his name in big red letters on a black screen behind him. After all, we knew who we were going to see. That's why the show was sold out weeks in advance. Despite his rising status or perhaps ...
