MERLE HAGGARD —THE LAND OF MANY CHURCHES (BGO Records)

 

www.bgo-records.com

 

During the history of country music, especially back in the 1960s and 1970s many country performers devoted entire albums to gospel, religious music. It became common practice. Among those that come readily to mind you have Johnny Cash, Connie Smith, Red Foley, Dolly Parton, The Louvin Brothers, The Statler Brothers, The Stanley Brothers, Marty Robbins, Vern Gosdin, Wanda Jackson etc and here we…

AMY FRANCIS —BALLADACIOUS (Cherry Ridge Records)

http://www.amyfrancis.com

Now here is an interesting country project. For such is the line-up of songs and presentation one can’t help but be attracted to Texan Amy Francis style of music. Fans of Mandy Barnett, Patsy Cline and the like will love her work! 

For here we have traditional country music of old as producer Tommy Detamore (electric, steel, acoustic and Tic-Tac guitar) Kenny Penny (electric, acoustic and Tic-Tac…

CHRIS SMITHER —HUNDRED DOLLAR VALENTINE (Signature Sounds)

 

www.signaturesounds.com  

Sometimes it can take me a little while to fully appreciate a new Chris Smither album but once I become more tuned in I find them to be keepers. Smither wrote every song but for ‘On The Edge’ —and this he shared with producer, slide guitarist David Goodrich.

 

On my initial listen I quickly gravitated to ‘What They Say’,…

KENNY ROGERS —FAITH (Humphead)

 

www.humpheadcountry.com

 

Here is a wonderful concept that turns out to be something of a roller coaster ride. For Kenny struggles with his singing voice when it comes to some of the slower ballads. His voice has never been what you would term as choirboy-like and there is nothing wrong with that and his smoky toned singing being something of an ‘acquired taste’.

 

Great though his versions of material…

JENNY O. —HOME (Manimal Vinyl Records)

JENNY O. —HOME  (Manimal Vinyl Records)

 

www.jennyo.com

 

Oh, boy hasn’t this girl talent. Admittedly, after being blown away by the sublime ‘Well Ok Honey’ the remaining four songs from the EP don’t quite match it (then what could?) but talent she most certainly has. I can’t wait to see her perform when she is over later this month (July); for one, Gateshead’s SummerTyne Americana Festival (she shares a show with Lera Lynn and…

MARY CHAPIN CARPENTER —ASHES AND ROSES (Rounder)

http://www.rounder.com 

http://www.marychapincarpenter.com 

What makes this album so special? Taken from not the happiest of times for her, Mary Chapin’s finely crafted stories of heartache and of how she has handled loss, her father and divorce. Stripped near to the bone Ashes And Roses is…
