Some music needs to be heard in concert to be fully appreciated. No amount of spin doctoring by journalists or peer pressure from fanatical fans can justify an act unless one catches said act live.
A Grammy Award-winning, hit-making machine, Lady Antebellum is moving full-speed ahead to deliver its next record before singer Hillary Scott delivers...
Maybe it was just the particular media I happened to watch this week, but I have been thinking about chemistry. (No, not the kind I couldn't pass in high school.) But a different kind of chemistry. And what I am finding is that coupling among 'mature' adults does not necessarily connote sedate or boring.
Don't tell Holly Williams that the road is a lonesome place. To begin 2013, there's nowhere else she'd rather be. Of course, it took a while for the...
I grew up on Huell Howser, following him from Nashville, where I watched him on the local news, to Los Angeles where he opened a whole new world for me with his reports on California's treasures.

The optimist in me believes that if you do what you love and just work hard enough, success will follow. But the realist in me knows I'd be leaving out a big piece of the equation: LUCK.

While the rising popularity of Americana music in the past decade is an encouraging sign, watching one exceptionally well-grounded roots group sprout right before your eyes is truly a thing of beauty.
You could kind of say that by being in this band, I'm married to two men. I have to trust them implicitly or this project simply will not work.

Rockabilly favorite Rosie Flores has just released Working Girl's Guitar on Bloodshot Records, and she is an important artist who should not be overlooked.
