– Little Big Town, the Killer and a few holiday CDs are out today.
Little Big Town is out with "Pain Killer." Comprised of Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook, the foursome co-wrote 8 of the 13 tracks, including the hit "Day Drinking." Jay Joyce, who produced the group's 2012 release "Tornado," also was at the helm for the new disc.
Jerry Lee Lewis may be nearing 80, but he shows no signs of slowing down on "Rock & Roll Time." The 11-song disc includes Chuck Berry's "Little Queenie" and Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues."
Darius Rucker and LeAnn Rimes both dish out music for the holiday. Rucker is out with "Home for the Holidays," a dozen songs including "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch." He wrote one of the songs, "Candy Cane Christmas."
Rimes previously released a holiday CD, and is back with a six-song release, "One Christmas, Chapter 1." The set is mainly traditional songs, but there is one entitled "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas."
