RRB, Pillbox Patti, Bailey Zimmerman top new releases

Friday, October 14, 2022 – Randy Rogers Band his out with "Homecoming," which serves as a 20th anniversary celebration for the band. The disc was produced by Radney Foster, who worked on early albums like "Rollercoaster." Rogers co-wrote 10 of 11 songs on "Homecoming," working with writers including Jack Ingram, Parker McCollum, Randy Montana and Jon Randall. Themes tackled on this poignant project include lost love, the passage of time and childhood memories.

Nicole Hayford has gained acclaim as a songwriter, penning songs including "A Little Dive Bar In Dahlonega" and "One Night Standards," both hits for Ashley McBryde. She also had a hand in writing 11 songs on McBryde's new concept disc, "Lindeville" and "God Fearin' Gypsies" on Little Big Town's "Mr. Sun." She even sang on "Lindeville," but you won't find her name. That's because she sang under the moniker Pillbox Patti. And now Pillbox Patti is out with "Florida," a 10-song release. She writes about her upbringing on several songs.

"Leave The Light On" is the debut EP from breakout country artist Bailey Zimmerman. The lead single, "Fall In Love," is also now within the Top 10 at country radio, making it the fastest debut song to reach the Top 10 in five years. The track listing also features "Rock And A Hard Place" and "Where It Ends." Zimmerman, 22, is a native of Louisville, Ill.

Sam Williams releases "Glasshouse Children: Tilted Crown," a deluxe version of his debut, "Glasshouse Children." The expanded edition features six new tracks, including the previously released "Ragdoll" as well as new song "Tilted Crown." Williams is the grandson of Hank Williams and the son of outlaw legend Hank Jr.

Callista Clark, 19, is out with her 10-song debut CD, "Real To Me: The Way I Feel." Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Lionel Richie, Keith Urban, Mickey Guyton), produced Clark's debut album.

CD reviews for Randy Rogers Band

CD review - Hellbent Randy Rogers makes a big, bold statement with his title track, but it's the smaller insightful moment expressed through "Wine In A Coffee Cup" that stands out most. Rogers sings it empathetically over a swaying groove, one highlighted by equally empathetic fiddle. And it's an unusual drinking song. It's not about someone going out to a club and noisily ordering round after round to conspicuously drink away a heartache. Instead, it's a woman applying an ...
CD review - Nothing Shines Like Neon Randy Rogers Band's latest album cover provides insight into the music contained within. The brightly lit neon sign is a familiar sight to those who frequent honky tonks and smoky barrooms. The Texas country band plays music that is designed specifically for these locations and crowds within. Almost every song on this album has alcohol as one of the main characters. Fresh on the heels of Rogers' excellent twang filled collaboration with Wade Bowen, he returns with his full band with a ...
With "Trouble" the Randy Rogers Band seems to be attempting to straddle the line between hard-edged Texas alternative country and slick Nashville mainstream. Rogers is at his best when he sticks to alt.-country, as with the rocker Fuzzy in which he vaguely recalls the alcohol influenced events from the previous evening ("Who the hell is Heather/And when were we together/Cause I've got every letter of her name on my chest"). Similarly the bluesy Shotgun ...
