CD reviews for Dixie Bee-Liners

Susanville CD review - Susanville
Although they have long been a staple of rock and roll music, concept albums focused on a singular theme or narrative are a rare species in country music and virtually unheard of in the bluegrass genre. That's why "Susanville" from Virginia's The Dixie Bee-Liners is one of the most revolutionary bluegrass releases in recent memory. Based on the premise that "every car on the highway has a story," this album takes listeners on a journey through the roads of America »»»
Ripe CD review - Ripe
The Dixie Bee Liners' sophomore release provides a stellar showcase for lead singer Brandi Hart, whose ability to switch from Appalachian folk to blues and flat-out bluegrass makes each number wring with authenticity. Producer Bill VornDick has sharpened the Bee Liners instrumental focus, subtly mixing Sam Morrow's syncopated banjo runs and Rachel Renee Johnson's Celtic fiddle rides as if they were atmospheric pop interludes.

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: Combs, Gill, Harris, Crow comprise one final musical platter – Vince Gill played host to an entertaining guitar pull, a show which also featured his longtime friend, Emmylou Harris, slightly newer friend Sheryl Crow and brand-new friend Luke Combs. Gill joked from the outset that this All for the Hall fundraising show needed Combs to sell tickets, and by the audience's response, it was clear many came only to see Combs.... »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
