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: Evans brings the cheer – What's a country song without drinking? Morgan Evans seems to have gotten the missive loud and clear as a good chunk of his songs incorporate libations into the mix. And when the Australian-bred singer isn't confronting drinking, he's dealing with matters of the heart, but in keeping with the positive attitude he purveyed, love is most... »»»
Concert Review: Lambert smiles, dances the night away – Miranda Lambert didn't perform "Tin Man," one of her best, but also one of her saddest songs during this Wildcard tour stop. It's a song sung from the perspective of one who is sad that she has a heart that can be broken. That's not the current condition of Lambert's heart, though. She's apparently in a good... »»»
