If you haven't heard of Caleb Caudle, just wait. You will. The recent success of alt-country darling Jason Isbell's rock-folk-country-chart topping album, "Something More Than Free," gives similar artists like Caudle hope that they too can break out and that their genre-defying music can be heard by the masses.
Witness Candi Staton as heard on her latest album Life Happens (Beracah Records). Her overall influence on popular music is incalculable. The artist who Frank Sinatra referred to as "the only true genius in show business" once bestowed upon Ms. Staton the title of "Female Ray Charles" a few decades ago.
