Mac McAnally Goes Live!

A talk with the legendary Mac McAnally is like a conversation with an old friend. In my eighteen years of doing interviews, I can honestly say that I have never felt as comfortable in talking with an entertainer.

The first ever live album from McAnally, he said that the adrenaline flow from playing in front of an audience is something you can’t experience from the studios where he usually records. “That’s true,” he…

New Artist Spotlight: Margaret Durante

It seems incongruous for Margaret Durante to include “Whiskey and a Gun” on Maybe Tonight, her four-song, digital-only debut EP, co-produced by James Stroud and Stephony Smith and released in April on Emrose/R&J Records. (Her full album debut follows later this year.) Written by Lisa Carver, the song tells a tale involving murder, revenge, prison and other grim topics. It even ends on Death Row, right after the hapless protagonist’s execution has begun…

Nu-Blu – The Blu Disc

In Bluegrass, there are few names more respected than that of Pinecastle Records, so it would stand to reason that if the label believes in you to sign them to their roster, you must be good. Well, this duet is good – and a lot more. Made up of husband and wife Carolyn and Daniel Routh, banjo player Levi Austin, and mandolin player Kendall Gates, this is Bluegrass Music, make no mistake about it…

New Artist Spotlight: Thompson Square

Every vocal duo is a story still being told. And when the members have a personal as well as musical bond, it’s often about two roads starting at different places before joining as one highway of song. So it is with Keifer Thompson and Shawna Thompson, a.k.a. Thompson Square. His path began in Miami, Okla., where he grew up on Merle Haggard, Roger Miller, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen as well as heavy metal and even…
