Jamie’s “Living For A Song, A tribute to Hank Cochran” is called by the magazine “the year’s best hootenanny”.  I hate when rock publications say things like that. I don’t know whether to take that as a compliment or not, but i guess they liked it!

I actually think that they like this album the best according to the article.   They call it a perfect balance of throwback twang and contemporary sheen.

Yes, Lionel Richie. He is always had a country influence and he’s back and stronger than ever. This album I could review because I own it. It’s called Tuskeegee and it is fabulous.  There are great duets on it, and in many cases there a new arrangements of his old classics.
