CD reviews for Brett Eldredge

Brett Eldredge (self-titled)
Coming off a string of six consecutive number one hits from his first two albums, "("Bring You Back" and "Illinois"), Brett Eldredge had a choice; take deliberate aim at the chart summit or follow his heart. He opted for the latter and delivers a thread of love and love lost songs. He self-titled his fourth album saying it was his most honest collection of songs to date. The Illinois native is known for doing death-defying stunts when his songs hit the top of »»»
Glow CD review - Glow
If things ever go south for Brett Eldredge in the country music field, he should have no problem transitioning into the world of contemporary crooners like Michael Buble and Harry Connick, Jr. For on his debut holiday outing, "Glow," Eldredge takes off his hat and puts on his tuxedo as he delivers a pitch perfect, old-school dose of Christmas cheer. Across a swath of 10 (or 13 for those springing for the deluxe edition) traditional favorites and 1 original, Eldredge taps into a nostalgic »»»

They're not exactly Waylon and Willie or even Moe and Joe, but Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett are becoming quite the duo. There's the recently announced Suits and Boots tour pairing the burgeoning young country stars. Give a listen to the saucy "You Can't Stop Me" on Eldredge's sophomore release. Rhett's vocals and the memorable line "Goose is loose" helps set the tone for the rest of the 12-song title. Granted, Eldredge is from small-town farm »»»
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: 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.... »»»

Monica Rizzio's second album, "Sunshine Is Free," emblematic of its title, ushers in bright country music, with roots touches but generally gliding in melodic, uplifting country territory. Put this in your player when you need a smile or two. »»»
