Jason Aldean (Featuring Luke Bryan and Eric Church), ‘The Only Way I Know’ – Song Review

Jason Aldean's new single 'The Only Way I Know' weaves from the same spool as his biggest hits. Themes of hard work, loyalty and small town values have been at the core of hits like 'Fly Over States,' 'Tattoos on This Town,' and most recently, 'Take a Little Ride,' even if you need to look beyond the cutie in the passenger seat to find them. On the new single from 'Night Train,' Aldean's message is more direct. but no less effective.

Lady Antebellum, ‘On This Winter’s Night’ – Album Review

Lady Antebellum are practically built for Christmas albums. There's a Captain and Tennille quality to their partnership that's made hip by youth and intriguing subject matter. The trio's take on standards like 'I'll Be Home for Christmas' and 'Silent Night' are timeless, in that they could really be transported to any decade of country music. For them, covering yuletide hits is as easy as looking good.

Kacey Musgraves, ‘Merry Go Round’ – Song Review

The story goes like this: Texas teen auditions for 'Nashville Star,' doesn't win but uses the experience as motivation to sharpen her pen so that she can release her own melodic country music years later. The result strikes deep; right to the bone. It's uncomfortably close to reality for millions of Americans without offering much hope. Sound familiar?

Gloriana, ‘A Thousand Miles Left Behind’ – Album Review

On their sophomore album, Gloriana lay down 11 tight, polished and harmonious country songs that collectively fall short of providing an identity for a group working through year four together. The trio feels like the shy kid in class who knows all the answers, but doesn’t want to raise his or her hand.

Lady Antebellum, ‘Wanted You More’ – Song Review

The power behind the punch of Lady Antebellum‘s sophomore album has withered away to little more than a slap to the cheek with the group’s fourth single ‘Wanted You More.’ The best songs from ‘Own the Night’ have already been issued as singles, and while hope remains for a late surge (‘Cold as Stone’ or ‘Friday Night’ perhaps), this new offering is more style than substance.

Carrie Underwood, ‘Blown Away’ – Album Review

As expected, the cover of Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Blown Away’ album foreshadows the mood of the project’s 14 songs (eight co-written by Underwood). It stops short of tempestuous, but she spends more time looking back at the darkness than she does forward to sunny days.

Josh Abbott Band, ‘Small Town Family Dream’ – Album Review

If there was any question about Josh Abbott’s intention as a Texas country artist, he answers it on ‘Small Town Family Dream,’ his third studio album. Actually, he doesn’t just answer the question, he pulls a hot poker out of the fire and brands his love for the Lone Star state across his chest, back and arms. There’s no doubt where the Josh Abbbott Band frontman’s loyalty lies.

Lee Brice, ‘Hard 2 Love’ – Album Review

Lee Brice‘s new album ‘Hard 2 Love’ feels like a half thank you note, half apology to his soon-to-be wife and their son. Not all of the 13 cuts were written by the ‘A Woman Like You’ singer, but put into the context of what is going on in his life, many come across as extremely personal love letters.

Willie Nelson, ‘Just Breathe’ – Song Review

Much like Johnny Cash on ‘Hurt,’ Willie Nelson makes fans aware of his fragile mortality with an evocative cover of Pearl Jam‘s ‘Just Breathe.’ The famous country singer is joined by his son Lukas on this first listen of music from the upcoming ‘Heroes’ album. Together, they silence the room. Only a stone will keep from fighting tears after a few listens.

Montgomery Gentry, ‘So Called Life’ – Song Review

“And the ACM Award for Guitar Lick of the Year goes to …” OK, so they don’t reward loud, nasty guitar riffs that upset the neighbors when you open the windows and crank the stereo to 10. But if they did, Montgomery Gentry‘s ‘So Called Life’ would earn the duo their first major award in over a decade.
