CD reviews for Scotty McCreery

Seasons Change CD review - Seasons Change
"Boys from Back Home" is Scotty McCreery's amalgamation of Kenny Chesney's "I Go Back" and "Boys of Fall," which even borrows words from each hit song to create something attempting to be new. It's not new. Instead, it sounds more like songwriting by committee, relying upon radio listener demographics. Many of these songs were created to sound immediately familiar to mainstream ears. They will. This doesn't mean they're good, though, let alone meaningful. »»»
See You Tonight CD review - See You Tonight
Scotty McCreery's third release, "See You Tonight" is designed to market the season 10 American Idol champ as a more mature artist. Armed with songwriting heavies along with a guest vocal from Allison Krauss, it might work on paper. But in the end, he proves that his wheelhouse remains fun contemporary songs driven by his boy next door charm. Ironically, for a fall release, the album is heavy on summertime themed tracks and upbeat party anthems. From Feel Good Summer Song to »»»
Christmas with Scotty McCreery CD review - Christmas with Scotty McCreery
Hearing Scotty McCreery go into a spontaneous, Elvis-y C.C. Rider, right after a guitar-rocking, piano-pounding Santa Claus Is Back In Town makes "Christmas with Scotty McCreery" worthwhile. It's such a treat to have the boy wonder let loose and rock just a bit, rockabilly style. McCreery also rocks a touch during his version of Jingle Bells, which leaves him sounding more like Dwight Yoakam than Josh Turner, which is usually the comparative case. Rockabilly must have been on »»»
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: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them – Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be. And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove – Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues. Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
