CD reviews for Luke Combs

The Prequel EP CD review - The Prequel EP
The saying, 'Strike while the iron's hot,' applies to many situations, but especially to the music business. The scene moves so fast these days that this last year's star could be this year's 'Where are they now?' Luke Combs moved quickly up the country music popularity ladder, so he's smart to put out this five-song EP between full-lengths. First single, "Beer Never Broke My Heart," is a throwaway tune, built upon a solidly thumping, Waylon Jennings-like groove. »»»
This One's For You Too CD review - This One's For You Too
Luke Combs has gotten a lot of life out of his album "This One's for You," which includes his breakthrough hit "Hurricane," as well as the popular single "When It Rains It Pours." This deluxe edition includes five new tracks, many of which are just as strong as the original 12. "Houston, We Got a Problem" includes a smart lyric highlighting specific details about that big Texas city. Even though it has all these famous landmarks, it doesn't have »»»
This One's For You CD review - This One's For You
Five years ago, when beer-drinking, truck-driving-in-the-country country songs were en vogue, Luke Combs' full-length debut would have fit right in. In 2017, when pop music rules the country market and male singers are more likely to wear a stylish jacket instead of a flannel shirt, Combs is positively refreshing. "Hurricane," the first single and first top five hit of Combs' career, sounds like a typical Jason Aldean ballad at the onset, but then builds into something more »»»
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: Henry comes out the other end a better man – Joe Henry mentioned at the outset that this show was not only the record release celebration, but also the anniversary - to the day - of when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Although the songs from this fine new album do not address his illness directly, they many times touch upon the big issues of human existence (life, death and the meaning of it all).... »»»
Concert Review: What's in a name? Strings lives up to it – Billy Strings may not be his real name, but the bluegrass performer more than lives up to his adopted moniker. Bluegrass may not be the first style of music when one thinks of William Apostol's (yup, that's Billy's real name) home state of Michigan, but with more miles on the bus and shows like this outstanding, lengthy, lyrical night... »»»
