Back in June, NPR's Ann Powers declared 2013 to be the Year of the Woman, pointing to the runaway success of Miranda Lambert and Kacey Musgraves, among others. Yet last night, CMT apparently forgot female…Continue
Zac Brown recently ran afoul of Music City etiquette by referring to fellow Georgian Luke Bryan's "My Kinda Night" as "one of the worst songs ever." On its face, the critique, while harsh, was spot-on: Bryan is a male supermodel/Southern frat boy-quarterback archetype masquerading as a country musician, and the…Continue
Australian country man Lachlan Bryan has a day job as front man for the Wildes, but his debut solo effort sees him with a set of carefully crafted songs that have a strong feel for the mellow craft of classic country music. His richly-timbred voice fronts arrangements that recall but do not pastiche old Nashville favourites, and he is joined by some great players to bring this all to fruition. Most notable amongst these would be Kasey Chambers duetting on the lead…Continue

Yeah, yeah. It's that time of year again. Everyone is doing it, and so am I. My top albums of 2011.
This was a really tough list to gather. 2011 was crammed with amazing music, so that just made the decision making that much harder.
34 people e-mailed and messaged me with suggestions of what my final top number should be this year. Suggestions ranged from "Top 10" to "Top 53"! That wasn't going to happen anyway. But the most common number suggested was "Top 24".
