The Greatest Gift of All
It's the big things - and sometimes the little things - that make Rascal Flatts' Christmas album "The Greatest Gift of All" stand out. On the macro level, the country vocal trio put a little funk - well, as much funk as three Nashville guys can muster - into "Go Tell It on The Mountain." And then, the cool little bass line introducing "Let It Snow" helps differentiate this act's version from possibly millions of other versions.

Don't worry. Just because Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox sings, "Try to talk to George Strait into givin' us an encore" on the hit single and title track doesn't mean that the traditional country giant is all of a sudden a cornerstone for the trio that has been front and center of the pop country sound.

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.

Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
