Kyle Park, ‘The Night Is Young’ – Song Review

Kyle Park's new single, 'The Night Is Young,' is as straight forward of a country song as you'll find. Park sets off to tell a simple one-night story of a guy, a girl and a little trouble, and does so effortlessly. The Texas country singer has surrounded himself with a strong production team to make the first single from an upcoming new album easy to remember.

Lucky Ned Pepper, ‘I Remember the Music’ – Song Review

Former Smokin' Armadillos singer Rick Russell and guitarist Josh Graham have remained close enough to cut new music as Lucky Ned Pepper, a duo named after the villain in 'True Grit.' Their first single, 'I Remember the Music,' is catchy and polished, but likely not the breakthrough song they're hoping for.

Zac Brown Band Interview: John Driskell Hopkins Says Band Will Always Break the Rules and Push the Limits

Brett Eldredge, ‘Don’t Ya’ – Song Review

Brett Eldredge is a country newcomer with more talent than fame, but the latter may catch up to him after his new single ‘Don’t Ya’ finishes its radio run. The Illinois born-and-raised singer does all of the little things right on this tightly-produced cut from a long-promised debut album. We’re never blown away by his soulful voice, but we’re made aware of what he’s capable of by the end of a first or second listen.

This Week in Texas Music Tweets

Our good friend Rita Ballou takes the time to collect the wittiest, most topical and sometimes very random tweets each week from the Texas scene. Then, after she gathers them up, I steal ‘em. And that takes us to right up, to right here. Check out “This Week in Texas Music Tweets,” including a “thank you” tweet from Randy Rogers, a patriotic one from Bart Crow, and it wouldn’t be a true “T.W.I.T.M.T” without a Hayes Carll tweet from Down Under.

Craig Campbell, ‘Outta My Head’ – Song Review

Craig Campbell tries on a more contemporary sound with his new single ‘Outta My Head,’ a song about getting over a lover who won’t leave you alone even though she hasn’t called in quite some time. By leaning away from traditional, the singer aims to please more fans than his last two singles — the edgy ‘Fish’ and a middle finger to bill collectors called ‘When I Get It’ — but the result is a nondescript, mid-tempo country song that could have been recorded by anyone at any time.

Are The Damn Quails the Next Big Thing in Red Dirt? [AUDIO]

One album and two singles into a career may be a little early to go throwing around “the next best thing” but it’s not stopping me. And while there are certainly a few bands you could say that about, not many have experienced the radio play and success The Damn Quails already have. Both of their singles “Fools Gold” and “So So Long,” went Top 5 on the Texas charts. Last week the guys stopped by Radio Texas, LIVE! unannounced, but it was a welcomed surprise.
