'Crickets' is a fine way to describe Joe Nichols' new album. The singer aims for a relax-on-the-riverbank vibe with many of the mid-tempo cuts on this project. The album begins and ends with crickets ( literally), and in between it offers a fairly level ride.
Randy Travis' 'Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am' is a simple collection of covers from artists that inspired him. Merle Haggard is the most represented singer, with eight cuts influenced by or recorded by him at some point. Three of the first four are Haggard songs, with 'What Have You Got Planned Tonight Diana' being the one to remember.
Lady Antebellum have found a new direction for their blend of pop-flavored harmonies. 'Compass' walks into the forest of alt-bluegrass that's quickly growing in popularity. Heavy banjo and mandolin drive a foot-stomping beat as the group sings about staying true to one's heart.
'Stay' is the most important song of Florida Georgia Line's young career. The heartbreaker finds the two cocksure men bleeding and knocked down a few steps from the truck bed they confidently stood in for their first three singles. To sustain a lengthy country music career, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard need to prove they're a well-rounded duo.
Billy Currington adds a pinch of rock, two tablespoons of R&B and a heavy dose of soul to his new 'We Are Tonight' album. The result is a project that tastes different, but remains true to a sound he's cultivated over the last decade.
Little Big Town's new single 'Sober' is a sweet love song bathed in four-part harmonies reminiscent of the group's most popular cuts from the mid '00s. After three edgier singles, the quartet lightens up.
Sheryl Crow didn't need to change much to fit in with Nashville's top female vocalists, and on the best songs from her 'Feels Like Home' album, she didn't. An easy (no pun intended), direct delivery serves the "newcomer" well.
Hank Williams, Jr. and Merle Haggard collaborate for a remake of Haggard's early '80s hit, 'I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink,' and turn it into half the song it used to be -- literally. The new version is half as long, but fans will say it's every bit as rebellious.
Two artists not known for their duets come together on Keith Urban's 'We Were Us.' The second single from 'Fuse' features Miranda Lambert as co-lead vocalist. It'd be woefully inaccurate to call this simply a "guest appearance," as it's her voice that opens the song.
Mindy McCready's 7-year-old son Zander is coming home to live with his father. Billy McKnight was involved in a lengthy custody dispute that wrapped up last Friday (July 12), with a decision to let the boy live with the Florida-based singer and his new wife.
