CD reviews for Jana Kramer

thirty one CD review - thirty one
Jana Kramer's sophomore effort has been a long time - more than three years since she put out her self-titled release, which contained the hit "Why Ya Wanna" - in coming. Kramer points to contemporary country sounds, while her quality singing has an urgency and comfort level with the material throughout. The fast paced, galloping "Boomerang," which leads off the disc and was penned in party Maddie & Tae, is given more of a rock treatment than M&T would likely offer. »»»

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... »»»
