Florida Georgia Line – “Dirt”

Florida Georgia line putting some country in their country. Nothing special but still pretty nice. Next step would be to add some fiddle to that steel and see what happens.

Brantley Gilbert – “Just as I Am” album release

BGFour years since his last release, BG came out with a new album today. Sounds pretty good. Nothing too new, but with his tried and true style it should do really well.

Lady Antebellum – “Golden”

Lady Antebellum’s “Golden” from earlier this year offers up some good cuts. The trio had drifted into such mainstream pop territory I wondered if they’d ever find their way back to heartfelt country that has that sometimes intangible difference of authenticity over the schmaltz and glam of pop. My favourites from Golden are “Long Teenage Goodbye,” “Golden,” and “Compass” (the first single). Don’t get me wrong, this is still straight-down-the-middle pop country, it’s just of a slightly catchier and better variety than their past couple of offerings, with a good energy throughout and some solid writing and vocals.

Alan Jackson – “Blue Ridge Mountain Song”

AlanJacksonWhat a great song from Alan Jackson, written, composed and sung by him off of September’s Bluegrass Album. This bluegrass country old-time song is exactly in line with the best stuff Jackson’s ever done and the style that made him a household name in country music.
