Kevin Fowler set to release new album November 12

Kevin Fowler

Press release:
Kevin Fowler, one of Texas country’s most prolific artists, is
set to release his seventh studio album How Country Are
Ya?
on November 12 via Kevin
Fowler Records/Thirty Tigers.
 
Teaming up with producer
Ken Tondre, How Country Are Ya? was recorded in Austin
and features fifteen original tracks, all written by Fowler except
“Mousturdonus,” an instrumental written with his bandmates. Beginning with a
special intro from Earl Dibbles, Jr (Granger Smith’s “country
boy” alter-ego), to the slap-happy “Guitars and Guns” and reflective
biographical ballad “Panhandle Poorboy,” Fowler delivers a potent, raucous
collection of music that blends together seamlessly. The infectious
title track is the debut single and will be available on iTunes September 22,
but you can check out a sneak-peak by watching the lyric video

Joe Nichols Answers 10 Random Questions

 
Joe Nichols

Joe Nichols has one of the most unique voices of country music. He is handsome, charming & crazy talented. Most of us remember a few of his older songs such as "The Impossible" which reached #3 on The Billboard Hot Country Singles. Most of his well known hits were released via Show Dog Universal, his very first #1 is my all time favorite, "Brokenheartsville." Shortly after that Joe released a single that would go on to become his second number one hit. "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" is a song that everyone can enjoy. In fact, I still hear it at some of the country bars I hang out in. In 2012 Joe signed with Red Bow Records, his latest single "Sunny & 75" was released to country radio in May, 2013.  It's been a very busy year for Joe but there is so much more to come. Joe's eighth studio album Crickets will be released on October, 8 2013. I figured with his busy schedule, he could use a interview that was nothing more than a little fun.

Keith Urban (feat. Miranda Lambert) ‘We Were Us’ – Single Review

Keith-Urban-Miranda-Lambert

Disclaimer: All posts written by guest writers on this website are solely that writer's opinion and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the other writers and/or site owner. I respect their opinions and so should you, even if you don't agree with it.

I am not Keith Urban’s biggest fan by any means, but I don’t
think I’m alone in noticing the significant difference in his new material.
More pop-orientated than his previous records, ‘We Were Us’ is perhaps one of
the stronger lyrical efforts on an album that overall lacks substance. That
doesn’t mean that it’s worthy of a big thumbs up from me, however.

The song begins with a really nice banjo melody that upon
first listening holds promise for what’s to come. Miranda also has the first
verse all to herself, which is rare for an artist who is the featured one,
although this delight is muted by the fact they have edited her voice to a
robotic pulp. This leads me to my overriding issue with the entire track, and
that is the production. The chorus is completely over-done, with instruments
going full-pelt, a stupid pop drum beat and “too much atmosphere” (yes, there
is such a thing). It’s followed by a few vocal hooks from Keith, shrouded in
reverb and effects, before his own verse.
