‘Bad Romantic’ is the kind of country record you wished some of your favorite women of country would cut, but never do. It’s got that denim and bell-bottom 70’s honky tonk country vibe going on strong, unabashedly twangy and country, with a dash of funky energy and attitude.

Mountain Stage’s longtime host Larry Groce is not going anywhere just yet, so there’s no call for misty eyes and career retrospectives. But after having co-founded and hosted the show since 1983, it was announced last week that Larry will be seceding weekly host duties to Kathy Mattea.
Alan Jackson didn’t want to capitalize off the tragedy, and admitted being reluctant to record and perform it at all. Jackson said that after September 11th, he immediately wanted to write a song about it, if not for the public, then maybe just for himself—to externalize his thoughts.
From when we initially heard him though his first band Union Sound Treaty, to his solo album ‘Seneca’ in 2019 that put his West Virginia experience into song, Charles Wesley Godwin has proved himself to be one of the preeminent members of the new resurgence of authentic voices.
Guitarist and high harmony singer Joe Don Rooney for the pop country trio Rascal Flatts was arrested early Thursday morning (9-9) for driving under the influence. The 45-year-old was driving near the 1200 block of Hillsboro Road, close to Fieldstone Park just north of Franklin, Tennessee.
Earlier this week, Cody Jinks finally got his plaques for the achievement, and took to social media to show them off. But this wasn’t just about him. This was a family affair. After all, Cody’s son is a co-writer on “Loud and Heavy,” meaning he gets his own Platinum record as well.
lol, wut? The 2021 CMA Award nominations were announced this morning? Did anyone have this on their calendar? No Robin Roberts pulling envelopes out of Dan + Shay’s seersucker jackets to reveal the nominees live on television? No Hoda Kotb mispronouncing names?

“Signs and Wonders” is country, and old school rock ‘n roll. It’s music from a time when folks didn’t get hung up on labels, only if something was good or not. The challenge for a record like this is making it all feel seamless, and that’s what The Burner Band accomplishes.
Reigning Saving Country Music Artist of the Year Colter Wall is about to head out on tour, and as was warned when the tour was first announced, you better scarf up tickets now and see him in smaller venues when you still can, because this won’t last for long.
As you get together with friends, family, and co-workers for the Labor Day holiday, it’s the perfect excuse to aggressively ambush them about their bad choices when it comes to country music. Instruct them to ditch the Dan + Shay, and detox with this playlist.
