How did A Thousand Horses get so good so quickly? They're already using the executive washroom everyone thought belonged to Florida Georgia Line and are a band with a monster debut country single ("Smoke" from 2015) and a spate of award nominations.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
