Brice, Moore, Stuart lead news releases

Tuesday, April 24, 2012 – With Lee Brice, Kip Moore and Marty Stuart leading the way, today is a busy release day.

Brice has enjoyed a career of hits on his own and as a songwriter. His second disc, "Hard to Love," has a hit already with A Woman Like You, which went to number one. His current single is the title track. Brice has penned hits for Tim McGraw (Still) and Garth Brooks (More Than a Memory).

Moore, who has a hit on his hands with Somethin' 'Bout a Truck, releases his debut "Up All Night." Moore is a Georgia native.

Stuart and The Fabulous Superlatives are out with the 10-song "Nashville, Volume 1: Tear the Woodpile Down." Stuart continues hewing to a more traditional country sound with blues and gospel part of the mix.

Label mates Paul Burch and The Waco Brothers joined forces for "Great Chicago Fire." Both Burch and Jon Langford take lead vocals. The Wacos and Burch also co-produced the music.

Ryan Adams is out with "iTune Sessions." The disc includes eight solo pieces recorded at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, including solo and Whiskeytown material.

A compilation disc, "Mercyland: Hymns For the Rest of Us," was the brainchild of writer and producer Phil Madera. Emmylou Harris, The Civil Wars, Buddy Miller and Carolina Chocolate Drops are among those helping out.

CD review - I Don't Dance The cover of "I Don't Dance" features a glam shot of Lee Brice standing in a spotlight, looking more like a pop artist than a country singer. Listeners who prefer their country on the gritty side might be scared off by the pretty cover shot. The music matches the image: pop influenced mainstream country music, in the vein of contemporaries Jake Owen and Kip Moore. The success of his sophomore release emboldened Lee Brice. His first two albums introduced the country scene to his ...
CD review - Hard to Love Lee Brice had a dream run of success with his debut, "Love Like Crazy" - the title track became the most-played song on country radio in 2010. While that set the South Carolina native up for a doozy of a sophomore slump, he sidesteps it with ease. Brice simply has too many weapons - a songwriter's ear, soulful voice and some very able co-writer friends (Rhett Atkins, Eric Church) to veer far off course. A Woman Like You has already topped the country single charts. ...
