Album Review: Trisha Yearwood – Let’s Be Frank

Artist: Trisha Yearwood Album: Let’s Be Frank Label: Gwendolyn Records, LLC Genre: Big Band, Jazz Trisha Yearwood’s new album, Let’s Be Frank, technically is not country… but she’s Trisha Yearwood and she can do whatever she wants and we’re going to listen.

Album Review: Red Marlow – Country As Cornbread

Artist: Red Marlow Album: Country as Cornbread Year: 2018 Label: RM LLC Genre: Neo-Traditional Country Some of you may know Red Marlow from Season 13 of NBC’s The Voice.

Album Review: Bonnie Montgomery – Forever

Artist: Bonnie Montgomery Album: Forever Year: 2018 Label: Independent Genre: Honky Tonk, Classic Country This week’s album, Forever, is actually an unlikely review candidate.

Records like Ain’t Nothin’ To It make…

Album Review: Randy Houser – Magnolia

Artist: Randy Houser Album: Magnolia Year: 2019 Label: Broken Bow Records’ Stony Creek Imprint Genre: Country Blues Lately, I’ve been finding myself more and more hesitant to listen to all these new albums put out by artists I’ve still been calling “mainstream” due to the whole bro-country movement even if we haven’t heard anything from…

Album Review: Martha Spencer

Artist: Martha Spencer Album: Martha Spencer Year: 2018 Label: Independent Genre: Appalachian, Bluegrass, Country Folk Take one quick listen to Martha Spencer and it’s impossible to think of anything other than deep-rooted, classic Appalachian country music. This is true blue mountain music, folks, and it’s nestled between the peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains of…
