Fall Into Me CD review - Fall Into Me
Katie Armiger Fall Into Me- 2013 (Cold River) Reviewed by Michael Rampa With the release of her fourth album, "Fall into Me,"21 year-old Katie Armiger faces the unenviable task of being taken seriously as an artist. It is the classic peril of a teen starlet coming of age in the spotlight. To that end, she's released a 14- song collective thread about love in its many forms. She co-wrote all of the tracks alongside some of Nashville's premier songwriters including Blair »»»
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.

Nightfall CD review - Nightfall
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. »»»
