Reba McEntire – Love Somebody

A1PE5NdQuvL._SL1500_

Reba McEntire sat out the first half of the current decade, spending time concentrating on a new television show, the sitcom Malibu Country, which lasted the 2012-2013 season, before signing with Nash Icon, an offshoot of Big Machine, for her new album Love Somebody. Stakes were relatively high for Reba. She still was one of…


Vince Gill – Down To My Last Bad Habit

vince

The last two Vince Gill albums announced their intentions within their titles: 2011’s Guitar Slinger found plenty of space for his six-string prowess, whilst his 2013 duet with Paul Franklin was a valentine to Bakersfield country. Down to My Last Bad Habit, his first solo album in a half-decade, is a slightly more complicated affair….


Maren Morris – Maren Morris EP

maren-morris-ep-600x600

There is a great deal of buzz swirling around Nashville concerning Maren Morris. From listening to her debut EP, it’s easy to hear why. The Texas native has all the intangibles that you need to make it in today’s unpredictable climate – she’s got the vocal chops, the delivery, and the looks to set herself…


Chris Young – I’m Comin’ Over

image001

He’s had hits that rock a little and he hasn’t been averse to buffing his country so it gleams like Luke Bryan, but Chris Young’s ace in the hole has always been his ballads. So relaxed he seems broken-in, not lazy, he never oversells either his heartbreak or seduction, a skill that not every singer…


Glenn Frey (6/11/48 – 18/1/16)

Glenn-Frey

Instead of featuring an album of the week, this week we pay tribute to the sad passing of Eagles legend Glenn Frey by playing a different Eagles song, that Glenn sang lead vocals for, each day. Glenn Frey, was a founding member, singer, guitarist and driving force of the Eagles, co-writing most of their biggest…


Brothers Osborne – Pawn Shop

Brothers-Osborne1-e1446048443690

Brothers Osborne feature a grungy mix of traditional country and country-rock songs on their début album Pawn Shop. The project has Jay Joyce’s fingerprints all over it, but what stands out most is singer TJ Osborne’s coarse, sandpaper vocals. His unique sound forms a foreboding, if satisfying entryway to enjoying songs like “Dirt Rich” and…


Honey Ryder – Born In A Bottle

6283734

Honey Ryder’s third album Born in a Bottle is in a very similar vein to their previous album Marley’s Chains which had previously impressed me. I would describe both as being a mix of folk/pop with contemporary country influences (their first album, Rising Up, recorded when they were a duo, had a rockier edge). Both…


Pentatonix – That’s Christmas To Me

Pentatonix_-_That's_Christmas_to_Me

Pentatonix’s fourth studio album and second holiday-themed release, That’s Christmas to Me, showcases more of the innovative a cappella group’s electronic dance music-influenced vocal sound. The album comes two years after the Yuletide EP PTXmas. Here, the former NBC Sing-Off season three champions perform a bevy of Christmas classics including “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,”…


Cam – Untamed

There’s no mistaking Cam, the stage name for singer/songwriter Camaron Ochs, as anything other than a creature of the music business. Prior to her debut, Untamed, she worked as a professional songwriter, landing credits on up-and-comer Maggie Rose’s debut album and Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz, which was enough to help her land a deal. Recognizing a…
