Aldean, Jason - 9 [2019]
Vollgepackt mit satten 16 Songs heizt Superstar Jason Aldean mit Album Nr. "9" mal wieder mächtig ein und macht alles richtig. Kerniger, harter, ungemein rockiger Country/Countryrock, vollgepackt mit wuchtigen Riffs, Drums und Gitarren, geradeaus, ohne Kompromisse. Feinfühlige oder gar brisante Themen greift Aldean auch textlich nicht auf. Hier geht's vorwiegend um "tough guys, and the women that love them", sowie um alles weitere, was dem gemeinen Country-Raubein Spaß macht. Das ist genau das, was Jason Aldean-Fans hören wollen - und sie bekommen es zu 100% geliefert. Aldean hat seinen Stil gefunden und den zieht er gnadenlos durch. Das macht er aber auch einfach großartig. So ist auch "9" definitiv wieder ein absoluter Volltreffer!

Bryan, Luke - what makes you country [2017]
Sein unglaublicher Erfolg geht weiter. Das neue Album von Luke Bryan hat bereits kurz nach Erscheinen wieder die Top-Position der Nashville-Charts erklommen. Was er momentan anpackt, wird ein Riesenerfolg. Kaum ein anderer bringt die neue, junge New Country-Generation so rüber, wie Luke Bryan. Dazu gibt es nicht wenige "Kritiker", die "What makes you country" auch als sein bislang bestes Werk bezeichnen. Also: hier passt alles! 15 neue, ganz starke Songs von Luke Bryan.

Hier ein Original U.S.-Review:

Opening up with "What Makes You Country," the album's title track, Luke Bryan immediately showcases why he became one of the most-popular stars of the past decade in country music.: he sings songs about himself, his friends and his audience. This one, an anthem which is to likely be both a radio hit and the opener of his concerts for years to come, also speaks of becoming who you are and that you don’t have to be born and bred or even from the rural areas to be “country.” “Out Of Nowhere Girl” and “Bad Lovers” both speak of dalliances with the opposite sex while “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset” is the kind of song that stirs up memories of good summer days gone. “Hungover In A Hotel Room” (which features Emily Weisbend in a supporting vocal role) has a moody melody as it describes a couple in the midst of a morning after a night of bliss.
While there’s plenty of relationship-related music and good times to be had here, there are a couple of songs which will make you stand up and pay attention to What Makes You Country. The first of those is “Most People Are Good,” a song which is subdued in approach but is basically a song that believes in the beauty of humanity and that we all, in the end, really want the same things out of our lives. It also manages to be inspirational without feeling preachy (Though I suspect people WILL call it that when it becomes another hit single for Luke Bryan). “Land Of A Million Songs” is another special moment on the record. It’s basically how and why a musician does what they do. “Win Life” is another attention grabbing moment on What Makes You Country as it describes the need to living to work instead of working to live. Another interesting, attention-grabbing moment is “Drinking Again,” about as simple a sing-a-long song as an artist can have in their repertoire.
Because they have to and it’s part of evert fiber of their being. “Like You Say You Do” is a pleasant song with the kind of details that feel like a cousin to “Jesse’s Girl.” “Hooked On It” is about getting addicted to the music (and works as a cousin to “What Makes You Country”). Interestingly, “Light It Up,” the lead single from this project, is probably the least likable song on the record. So, in a record that is over 51 minutes long and fifteen songs deep, that’s saying something. It remains to be seen if What Makes You Country will become the best recording of his career but it certainly is something fans new and old will find more than enough to like on it.

Clark, Terri - classic [2013]
Schon bei Terri Clark's 2011er Album "Roots and wings" ist man aus dem Schwärmen kaum mehr rausgekommen. Gleiches gilt für ihr neues Werk "Classic". Was für ein wunderbares, reines Countryalbum! Seitdem Terri keinen Majorlabel-Vertrag mehr hat und damit aus den Charts völlig verschwunden ist, fühlt sie sich unabhängiger und freier als je zuvor, was ihrem künstlerischen Output ein ums andere Mal zu neuen Höhen verhilft. Sie ist besser denn je! Sie tut, was sie will, sie spielt die Musik, die sie spielen möchte - und keiner redet ihr rein. Und sie ist einfach gut - eine Countrykünstlerin von Format, voller Ausdrucksstärke, voller Herz und Seele. "This is the type of timeless project I've wanted to do my whole lfe", sagt sie voller Stolz über das neue Album und ergänzt: "It signifies so many things for me - my family roots, the Opry, my history and influences as an artist, and the songs that make up so much of the fabric of country music". Terri Clark hat ein Album aufgenomme, das ihre komplette Entwicklung widerspiegelt, die sie musikalisch genommen hat. Ein Album mit 11 legendären Countryklassikern, die sie ihr ganzes Leben beeinflusst und geprägt haben. Doch sie hat diese Songs nicht einfach gecovert, nein, sie hat ihnen ihren eigenen Stempel aufgedrückt und es gleichzeitig verstanden, die Originalität zu wahren. Die Nummern klingen ungemein frisch, knackig und sind sehr zeitgemäss produziert, wahren aber gleichzeitig auf authentichste Art und Weise das Flair ihrer Ursprünglichkeit. Zu einigen dieser Songs hat sie hochkarätige Duett-Gäste gewonnen, teilweise sogar die Leute, die damals das Original zum Klassiker gemacht haben. So bringt sie zum Beispiel eine wundervolle Version des wohl größten Hits von Tanya Tucker, "Delta Dawn", bei der sie Tanya mit herrlichem Duett-Gesang unterstützt. Entsprecehnd ist es bei dem Reba McEntire-Klassiker "How blue", den Terri Clark und Reba ebenfalls gemeinsam vortragen. Den unvergessenen George Jones/Tammy Wynette-Evergreen "Golden ring" präsentirt Terri gemeinsam mit Dierks Bentley - ebenfalls grandios gelungen. Bestens gelungen ist auch der Einstieg in das Album: Man hört zunächst die große Kittie Wells im (verrauschten) Original ihr legendäres "It wasn't God who made Honky Tonk Angels" singen, das dann nach einigen Sekunden nahtlos in Terri Clark's zeitgemässe, hinreissende Coverversion übergeht. Weitere tolle Nummern sind beispielsweise Neil Young's "Love is a rose" (auch bekannt geworden von Linda Ronstadt), Glen Campbell's "Gentle on my mind", Merle Haggard's "Swinging doors" und Hank Snow's "I'm movin' on", das die Kanadierin gemeinsam mit ihrem Landmann Dean Brody vorträgt. Es ist eine absolute Wonne, Terri Clark bei diesen vorzüglichen Interpretationen zuzuhören. Klassische Countrymusic, wie man sie heute spielt. Terri Clark's "Classic" sind ihre ganz persönlichen Countryklassiker, von Terri selbst und ihren grandiosen Begleitmusikern (u.a. Brent Mason - guitars, Michael Rhodes - bass, Chad Cromwell - drums, John Hobbs - piano, Stuart Duncan -.fiddle, Paul Franklin - pedal steel) herrlich erfrischend aufbereitet. Traditionelle Countrymusic auf absolutem Spitzenniveau!

1. It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels - 3:32
2. Love is a Rose - 3:04
3. How Blue (with Reba McEntire) - 3:01

Evans, Morgan - things that we drink to [2018]
Klasse U.S.-Debut des Australiers Morgan Evans, der drauf und dran ist in Nashville richtig Fuß zu fassen. Evans, in übrigen verheiratet mit der immens erfolgreichen Kelsea Ballerini, spielt eine überaus gefällige und voller Hitpotential steckende Mischung aus lockeren, gut zu verarbeitenden und sehr melodischen, mal dynamischen, mal langsameren Songs an der Schnittstelle zwischen New Country und Countrypop, die geradezu darauf warten die Charts zu stürmen. Enthält seinen ersten Nr.1-Hit, das flotte "Kiss somebody," und den neuen Hit "Day drunk". Natürlich darf auch ein Duett mit seiner Liebsten, Kelsea Ballerini, nicht fehlen ("Dance with me").

Hier ein Original U.K.-Review:

Morgan Evans captured the hearts of the UK when he released his lead single Kiss Somebody. With just a handful of songs out, Morgan has continued to build his UK fanbase with a couple of trips here including playing C2C Festival. Although we don’t often like to focus on an artists craft through their significant other, we can’t not mention Evan’s wife Kelsea Ballerini when she is so clearly the muse of most of his songs.
Morgan’s debut album Things That We Drink To starts with the song American, Evan’s seems to be describing his wife;
She’s got hair as gold as Kansas Wheat, her body moves like bourbon street in New Orleans, so wild and free She’s American, making my life better than it’s ever been.
American is a great start to the album and has that earlier Keith Urban style to it. This album is actually so much better than I thought it would be. With the title being Things That We Drink To I was somewhat afraid it was going to be a bunch of typical bro – country songs that sound just like all the other artists out there who sing about beer, trucks, dirt roads and women in little tight blue jeans or something. But this album has a lot more depth to it.
A lot of the songs are not just radio friendly but arena friendly and are definitely of the standard where you can imagine a huge arena concert and the music bouncing off the arena walls and everyone singing along.
Songs such as I Do are more mid tempo and in I Do’s case, is a love letter to his wife and well lets face it, us country fans are suckers for a real life country music love story.
Song for the Summer lost me a bit. I think it will prove popular amongst a lot of fans as has a great dance beat to it but it isn’t for me. It has an element of Sam Hunt in it and although I quite like Hunt, I just can’t seem to get into it.
Day Drunk which was another single is a great summer anthem song but again, neither here nor there for me sadly.
Kelsea Ballerini joins Morgan for Dance With Me for a stunning ballad. This is a gorgeous romantic country song as it should be. There is beauty in its simplicity and it isn’t over produced. The words are of course believable as they are true. Kelsea may not like love songs but Morgan clearly does and we are so glad about that or we wouldn’t have this song. I would be very surprised if this doesn’t get released as a single.
Me on You has a bit of an R&B element to it. It has a sweet guitar riff throughout and a nice beat to it. Although I am not keen on the clubby dance element to country music, this song can easily have that vibe but would also be amazing stripped back.
The title track Things That We Drink To, is thankfully not your typical drinking song but a breathtaking dedication to a friend of Morgans, his late manager who sadly passed. (More on that can be found here. ) This song has a strong anthem feel to it and its down tempo stylings are really quite infectious especially in the piano accompaniment. The emotion in Morgan’s vocals, lyrics and music is honest and quite deep. I like a song with meaning, a song where you can actually feel where the artist is coming from and what they a feeling on some level. The subject was obviously someone very dear to Morgan and the song is both happy and sad at the same time with the feeling of loss but also great memories and celebration of friendship. I think the songs music and words encompasses all of that and I would certainly drink to that.
We Dream is about those childhood dreams and childhood freedom. It is a good song but might be one that takes me a while. I sadly feel the same way about Everything Changes. Both aren’t bad tracks but may take a listen or two.
Young Again is a great song to close the album on. It has a Folk music way about it and is like an Irish drinking song and I enjoy those type of drinking songs as they feel a lot more happy and are the kind of songs that bring unity. I can see this song being one of those live songs that make people in the crowd all sway arm and arm whilst of course, raising glasses.
Overall this is a quality, celebratory album that certainly has that “Let’s raise our glasses” feel to it. Things That We Drink To has a lot of fun and thoroughly enjoyable songs.
There is a really bright future for Morgan Evans and he is definitely on his way up to being one of the big names and I am actually really excited about it. If he continues to deliver music similar to what he has now then I am more than happy for him to sit up there on the top of the charts. (Hnnah Jessica / Building Our Own Nashville)

Son Volt - honky tonk [2013]
Jay Farrar's unwiderstehliche, großartige Roots-/Alternate Country-/Americana-Formation Son Volt widmen sich, der Titel lässt es schon vermuten, auf ihrem neuen Album der klassischen Country- und Honky Tonk-Musik, und zwar vorwiegend der, die ihren Ursprung im californischen Bakersfield mit solchen Größen wie beispielsweise Buck Owens und Merle Haggard, aber auch dem unvergessenen Gram Parsons hat. Spuren dieser Musik waren schon immer Bestandteil in den Songs von Son Volt, doch nun präsentieren sie sie in einem vollkommen lupenreinen, unverfälschten Gewand und stellen dabei wie selbstverständlich eine geradezu hinreissend schöne und durch und durch authentische Balance zwischen traditioneller Old School-Ursprünglichkeit und einem zeitgemäßen Americana-Ambiente her. Das Material wirkt zeitlos lebendig. Farrar erzählt von Herzschmerz, gebrochenen Herzen, einsamen Highways, Honky Tonk Angels und verpackt die durchweg herausragenden Songs in herrliche Country-Arrangements, bei denen Instrumente wie die Pedal Steel und die Fiddle (zuweilen auch prächtige Twin-Fiddles) neben den transparenten Gitarren eine gewichtige Rolle spielen. Son Volt mit einer beeindruckenden Vorstellung, einer wundervollen Hommage an die gute, alte Honky Tonk-Musik, einem kleinen (Alternate)Country-Geniestreich.

Hier noch ein Original-U.S.Review:

Uncle Tupelo pretty much established the subgenre of alt-country in 1990 with the release of No Depression, and the band's two main songwriters and singers, Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy, seemed to fulfill the promise that Gram Parsons, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and the Sweetheart of the Rodeo-era Byrds had mapped out over two decades before, a perfect synthesis of rock and country. When Uncle Tupelo split in 1993, Tweedy, always more on the pop side of things, formed Wilco, which enjoyed commercial and critical success, while Farrar, who mapped out the moodier, more hangdog country side of things, formed Son Volt, a band with no aspirations for the charts, indie or otherwise, and while Son Volt's albums have been strong, interesting, and decidedly uncommercial ever since, they all lead, it seems, to this new one, Honky Tonk, which arrives at last squarely in country territory (more specifically, the Bakersfield country of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard), with nary an electric guitar in sight. Full of slow and midtempo waltzes and shuffles, and framed and led by pedal steel guitars and twin fiddles, along with Farrar's weary, never-in-a-big-hurry, laid-back (but somehow mysteriously intense) vocals, Honky Tonk is full of a beautiful, thoughtful, and almost Zen-like approach to life, all set against a classic old-school Bakersfield country backdrop. Songs here like "Hearts and Minds," "Wild Side," "Bakersfield," "Angel of the Blues," and "Shine On" aren't rave-ups, and aren't bitter barroom apologies, but are filled instead with a kind of stubborn hope and joy, made perhaps even more powerful for being from the 21st century while sounding like they came from the century before. The whole album accumulates in a powerful, meditative way, and its themes are less about drinking and trying to forget the past than they are about making peace with the past and trying to remember it and use it as a spark and a springboard to the future. Honky Tonk is country facing forward informed by the past.
