Getting Dressed in the Dark CD review - Getting Dressed in the Dark
According to the press release accompanying the debut album from Jaron and The Long Road To Love, "Getting Dressed in the Dark," the front man of this group with the long name, Jaron Lowenstein, lets folks know that this album is about love "because that's where I am right now." Lowenstein continues, saying that "I'm not interested in writing stories about doors, or blue skies or whatever. It's not interesting to me right now." Indeed. Truer words were never spoken. »»»

Concert Review: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace – To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play. But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
Concert Review: LBT proves more than capable – If you have seen Little Big Town in the last decade, it could have been anywhere from a B stage at a Rib Fest to a 20,000-seat amphitheater as the opener for some of country's top acts. Their current "Nightfall" tour rightfully proves they are more than capable and well deserved being billed as a top headlining act.... »»»

Little Big Town gets billed as a country music vocal group, but "Nightfall" plays out more like a four-headed singer-songwriter effort. Many of these songs hearken back to some of the best '70s introspective songwriter efforts. »»»
