Featured Interviews

Jaime Wyatt is a fantastic country singer that has just released her third album, "Feel Good," and is currently on her first headlining tour. This trek has taken her to places and venues where she's never played before and has been a heartening success.
Rodney Crowell's career is littered with butterfly-effect decisions that, in retrospect, represent life-altering milestones along the singer/songwriter's star-crossed path. If the Houston native hadn't moved to Nashville at age 22, he wouldn't have been discovered by Jerry Reed...
Steve Earle pays tribute to one of his mentors and heroes, Jerry Jeff Walker, on "Jerry Jeff," which follows his "GUY" tribute to Guy Clark and "TOWNES" tribute to Townes Van Zandt. Earle has called these projects a necessary form of therapy, as each of these great artists have passed on.
The title track to James McMurtry's "The Horses and the Hounds" plays out like one of those great running songs, namely Merle Haggard's "The Fugitive." "Lord I've been running for so long I just can't find a way back home," McMurtry sings, in that enjoyable deadpan vocal tone of his. When the Haggard song is mentioned, though, McMurtry responds, "I don't really remember.
Back before the world retreated into makeshift fallout shelters for a year of Netflix binging, board games and what Warren Zevon referred to as splendid isolation, Nashville-based singer/songwriter Shannon McNally was invited to play a Music City benefit concert.
By their own admission Track45 hails from a town that is "big enough for a WalMart and a Waffle House, but not a Target or a Starbucks." Ironically, Meridian, Miss. (population (41,148) is the birthplace of the father of country music, Jimmy Rodgers. The harmony-driven sibling trio of Track45 includes Ben Johnson and his infectiously bubbly sisters Jenna and KK.

Booth sticks to his roots

Life as a musician could be a bit of a downer these days for Tyler Booth. Apparently, he is no longer on Sony Nashville, which put out a few EPs, yielding no sizable hits. And on a Saturday night, maybe there were 100 people in the house. No matter for Booth, who covers both traditional and Outlaw country sounds. ...

Fulks: smart, sincere about his music and, oh yes, funny, too

Robbie Fulks played an early Friday night show, starting his set at just after eight (and this was even after an opening act). Although it was a show that finished long before the late-night news even came on, Fulks was nevertheless in fine firm – even at this early hour. Accompanied by ...

The Immediate Family's time to shine

The Immediate Family is more than a rock documentary and also more than a group of famous Los Angeles studio musicians. It's also an honest to goodness semi-touring rock band, as well, and kicked off its current short tour at the tiny club in Los Angeles. These players may not be household names, ...

Turnpike Troubadours, Jinks together? Bring them on

Turnpike Troubadours and Cody Jinks are both worthy headliners on their own. But the chance to hear both country acts on the same bill? Bring them on. Jinks and the Troubadours always having released their music on their own labels, forging a dedicated following without the perceived benefit of making ...
