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.…
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 ex…

Greg Bates, ‘Did It for the Girl’ – Song Review
Newcomer Greg Bates makes it look much too easy in his debut song ‘Did It for the Girl.’ The tune is country music, stripped of pomp and circumstance. His sweet molasses voice doesn’t hide behind any trumped up studio tricks or vocal effects. While the sound isn…
