CD reviews for Ruston Kelly

Dying Star CD review - Dying Star
There is a certain joy that comes from listening to a debut album and discovering, track by track, the arrival of a bright new talent. It's not a wet-behind-the-ears singer with a batch of anonymous songs, hoping to get radio airplay. Rather, it's someone with an already-established vision and a clear voice. Ruston Kelly's "Dying Star" may have a few too many cuss words to get the airplay it deserves, but it should be considered as one of the best debuts of the year. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country.

Concert Review: Turner pleases the traditionalists – Josh Turner is a hard-working citizen, a man of faith and a loyal father and husband. He also happens to be one of the youngest members inducted to the Grand Ole Opry. In short, he is the embodiment of country music's champion of the everyman. This night was special for him. He was celebrating an anniversary with his wife and his 18th with his label MCA.... »»»
Concert Review: Not much really changes for LaFarge – Just one look at the stage made it clear that this was not going to be a typical night with Pokey LaFarge. There were only a few guitars to be seen, which meant that LaFarge was going it alone. "I've been touring for years with a band," LaFarge told perhaps a few hundred people before he had even played a note.... »»»
