CD reviews for Alecia Nugent

Hillbilly Goddess CD review - Hillbilly Goddess
Alecia Nugent wraps her smooth, beautiful voice on her third release around songs written by some of the best in country and bluegrass music: Buddy and Julie Miller, Carl Jackson, Jerry Salley, Larry Cordle and Connie Leigh. She even co-writes a couple of songs - the rousing title track (written with Jackson and Sonya Kally) and the autobiographical Nugent Family Band (written with the storyteller Tom T. Hall and his wife Dixie). The majority of the album (9 of the 11 songs) is ballads or mid-tempo offerings. »»»
A Little Girl...A Big Four-Lane CD review - A Little Girl...A Big Four-Lane
Alecia Nugent's second CD is a winner. She is an excellent vocalist and has a star-studded group of musicians backing her. Nugent takes off at high speed on "Too Good To Be True." Carl Jackson, Rob Ickes, Adam Steffey and Jim Van Cleve are solidly behind her, driving the song knee-deep in bluegrass. She has a good and varied collection here. "I Cried All the Way To Kentucky" is a toe-tapper, while she tugs at heartstrings with "A Dozen White Roses." Not only does she have excellent musicians »»»
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: With or without band, Isbell satisfies – Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
Concert Review: Grammy nominations aside, Yola, Kiah are the real deal – Grammy nominations do not make the artist, but Yola and opener Amythyst Kiah underscored time and again on this night that the honors were well deserved. In fact, Yola and Kiah's other group, Our Native Daughters, are nominated in the same category - Best American Roots. Yola has three other nominations as well. The clear winners... »»»
