– California country singer Jon Pardi is out with his second disc, "California Sunrise." The first single is "Head Over Boots." Pardi has a cowboy feel to his song titles with "Cowboy Hat" and "Dirt on My Boots" among the dozen songs. Bart Butler and Pardi produced the disc.
Kris Kristofferson gathered in June 2014 at a studio in Austin to record for 3 days. The result is "The Cedar Creek Sessions," recordings of his favorite songs with Shawn Camp (guitar), Kevin Smith (bass), Michael Ramos (keys) and Mike Meadows (drums) aboard. Sheryl Crow sang a duet of 'The Loving Gift,' a song done by Johnny and June Carter Cash.
Sarah Jarosz's fourth release, "Undercurrent," marks a few changes for her. It's her first disc since she moved to New York and also is her first where she wrote all the material. While her previous discs had a bluegrass feel, this release is more of the confessional folk variety.
Locash, formerly LoCash Cowboys, releases its third disc, "The Fighter," on Reviver. The duo is Chris Lucas and Preston Brust. The disc contains the hit "I Love This Life" and the single "I Know Somebody." The pair co-wrote Keith Urban's 2011 single "You Gonna Fly" and Tim McGraw's 2012 single "Truck Yeah."
