D. Vincent Williams, ‘Down By the River’ – Song Review

D. Vincent Williams has a style country fans are already familiar with through the hits he’s penned over the last decade (James Otto’s ‘Just Got Lovin’ You’ is one of many). Now they’re sure to remember his voice, as his new single ‘Down By the River’ is a tall musical glass of iced tea after a dead-dog hot afternoon on the farm.

Gloriana, ‘A Thousand Miles Left Behind’ – Album Review

On their sophomore album, Gloriana lay down 11 tight, polished and harmonious country songs that collectively fall short of providing an identity for a group working through year four together. The trio feels like the shy kid in class who knows all the answers, but doesn’t want to raise his or her hand.

Kelleigh Bannen, ‘Sorry on the Rocks’ – Song Review

Kelleigh Bannen‘s scorn is anything but manufactured on her debut single ‘Sorry on the Rocks.’ The country newcomer — who signed to EMI Nashville barely two months ago — introduces herself to country music fans as a strong female artist willing to take no mistreatment.

Brantley Gilbert, ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ – Song Review

It’s difficult to overstate how important ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ is to Brantley Gilbert‘s career and the direction of country music. It’s a line drawn in the red Georgia clay — after two releases that held back — to allow those not previously familiar with the Jefferson-born singer to get acquainted with his pacing and style. This is his ‘Free Bird,’ in that it’s the first song fans and critics will mention in association with this talented artist.

Zac Brown Band, ‘Uncaged’ – Album Review

On paper, ‘Uncaged’ should not work as an album, let alone a country music album. The new release from Zac Brown Band redefines “something for everybody.” Country, reggae, bedroom R&B… Brown and his ever-growing motley crew stretch the Nashville sound further than any other artist. If they weren’t so talented, this project would fall apart long before the title-track.

Eric Church, ‘Creepin’ – Song Review

Eric Church has chosen what could one day be his encore song as the fourth single from ‘Chief.’ ‘Creepin” isn’t the best song on the album — it may not even be in the Top 3. However, it’s the project’s loudest, most rock and roll moment — one that would send fans home in a dizzying fit of distorted euphoria.

Sara Evans, ‘Anywhere’ – Song Review

Sara Evans returns to the sound that landed her No. 1 hits like ‘A Real Fine Place to Start’ and ‘Born to Fly’ (2005 and 2000 respectively) with her new song ‘Anywhere.’ The radio-ready single was co-written by Evans’ brother, Matt, and is included on her latest album ‘Stronger.’

Kip Moore, ‘Beer Money’ – Song Review

With ‘Beer Money,’ the new single from Kip Moore‘s ‘Up All Night’ album, the singer takes aim at the heart of country America. Those who never quite figured out what to do with ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck’ will quickly find themselves head-bobbing and mumbling along with the catchy chorus of this radio-friendly track.

Kenny Chesney, ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ – Album Review

The most striking scenes of Kenny Chesney‘s ‘Come Over’ video aren’t those of the bikini-clad beauty in the swimming pool or the panoramic shoreline. It’s the singer himself… without a hat on. As it turns out, those images are something of a metaphor for Chesney’s new ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ album.

Gretchen Wilson, ‘One Good Friend’ – Song Review

Gretchen Wilson may not be one of country music’s top female vocalists any longer. No, she’s transcended the genre, in a way Alison Krauss did hers years ago. Except Wilson’s not getting any of the recognition, until maybe now. ‘One Good Friend’ is a brilliant ballad about the meaning of friendship. However, it’s perhaps too professional to fit between the stars on modern country radio — a problem Krauss, and more recently Vince Gill, know very well.

Rascal Flatts, ‘Come Wake Me Up’ – Song Review

When he’s on, few vocalists commit to an emotion quite like Rascal Flatts‘ Gary LeVox. The singer will recklessly throw himself into love, heartbreak or desperation. ‘Come Wake Me Up,’ the new single from ‘Changed,’ is another fine example of how this trio continues to work at a level few country artists are aware of.

Check It or Chuck It — ‘The Dictator’, ‘The Occasional’ and Jessica Simpson’s Kid

There’s a lot to watch, play, read and stream out there. Some of it is good, and some of it is bad, like worse than Rosie O’Donnell playing Betty Rubble bad.
