Stephen Hunley – The Other Side of Never

More and more, it’s getting harder to fit albums or even single songs into a slot such as country, pop, rock, folk, blues and so on. (That’s probably why ‘Americana’ got invented.) That’s not a bad thing. Why should an album or a song – or a singer – get pigeonholed into a particular genre? As jazz giant Duke Ellington said, “If it sounds good, it is good.” However, radio programmers are intent on shoehorning songs…

Rhonda Vincent – Only Me

Fans of Rhonda Vincent are in for a double-decker treat with her new album titled ONLY ME. Scheduled for a national January 28 release, ONLY ME is a two-disc album with a unique twist. Remember vinyl LPs that had six songs on each side? ONLY ME echoes that concept, CD-style: Disc One is a six-song set of bluegrass songs, while Disc Two features a six-song country set. Neat, eh? But ONLY ME is definitely more than a novelty package, and these twelve cuts …

Clinton Gregory – The Roots of My Raising

Bluegrass Music defines a genre of music as truthful as the words in RED in the Good Book. This is why country artist Clinton Gregory and his first “release” as a Bluegrass artist fits this music like and a hand and a glove. Clinton, has lived life full circle; from records and albums on the chart with success in the early ’90s, (including one of my favorite songs “If It Weren’t For Country Music I’d Go Crazy”) to tours and sold out shows. Then his life went 180 degrees into a painful divorce, addiction and loss…

Jason Michael Carroll – 12-Pack of Questions

The accomplishments are impressive enough for any new artist – a chart-topping debut album nearing a half-million in sales, three hit singles from that album (all of which he wrote or co-wrote), a Gold ringtone certification, and opening spots on some of country’s hottest tours.
