Little Big Town live in Manchester!

Hello Well what started out as a bad night at the Albert Hall on Thursday due to the staff at the venue being unreasonable about bags and cameras - having one rule for one and a different rule for another, Seth Ennis and Little Big Town really saved the night and in fact Little Big Town was the best I’ve ever seen them! The Grammy award winning Country act have been performing together and making music for 18 years now and have countless top ten singles including number 1’s Pontoon, Girl Crush and Better Man. They are members of the Grand Ole Opry and now have a residency at The Ryman Auditorium. After performing twice at the Country 2 Country Festival Little Big Town have become a favourite

Review of Striking Matches Shameless EP!

Hello! A popular act in the UK is guitar wielding duo Striking Matches who first rose to fame after having several songs featured on the programme Nashville. In the past three years or so they have been on many visits to the UK where they consistently leave the crowd in awe with their jaw-dropping guitar skills. I’ve always said if Justin and Sarah were cricketers they would be all rounders, they can sing, they can play, they write some cracking songs and boy do they entertain when they’re on stage! But on Friday they released a brand new EP that’s flown under the radar a little bit which (pardon the pun) is a shame! Granted it’s quite different from their debut album (iTunes describes it as

Kip Moore's Slowheart Album Review!

Hello! Kip Moore has just released his third studio album. Moore shot to fame when his debut album peaked at number 3 on the US Country charts and became the best selling debut album from a male singer in 2012/13. His single Something Bout A Truck also took the number 1 spot in the Hot Country Songs Chart however he has consistently been overlooked at award shows and by Country Radio. This latest album though is perhaps Kip’s most interesting record to date. With co-writing credits on 11 out of 13 tracks it shows Moore’s consistency as a writer and sonically it captures the energy Kip displays in his live performances. The album opens with the very upbeat Plead The Fifth, the chorus features

Brandy Clark talks about getting over writers block, her upcoming UK tour and her ongoing projects!

Hello! One of my favourite songwriters as some of you will know is Brandy Clark. She has a way with words, her lyrics to each and every song are littered with witty lines and the stories she tells have either not been told before or certainly not been told in the way that she tells them. I have often said as have many other journalists on both sides of the pond that Brandy Clark is the greatest storyteller in Country music and since Country music is known for it’s storytelling, I think thats a pretty big yet well deserved compliment. Extra dates have been added to her upcoming UK tour because it is that popular. But the 41 year old has worked hard to get where she is today and doesn’t always

Marty Stuart chats about his upcoming UK tour and performing with Johnny Cash!

Hello! At this year's C2C undeniably the stand out act was Marty Stuart. The legend who began his career playing for artists such as Lester Flatt and Johnny Cash has had a long and successful career as a solo artist as well. When he was first announced for the festival which arguably focuses on more modern artists in the genre, it split opinions within the country music community in the UK with many stating they probably wouldn't enjoy his more traditional sounding set. When I first met Marty in the press conference before the show I knew that he would shut those people up the moment he walked out on stage. The man had a personality that shone from a mile away, you were compelled to listen t

Sonia Leigh returns with new single Walking in the Moonlight!

Hit Songwriter Sonia Leigh is back with a brand new single Walking in the Moonlight. The writer who wrote such hits as Sweet Annie and Goodbye in her Eyes for the Zac Brown Band and has had international success with her solo career has returned with a new single...oh and it's not Country. In fact this latest single is far from her Country roots, with its electronic instrumentation, it feels like a whole new era for Sonia all the while those distinct vocals that have impressed audiences all over the World remain prominent. Somehow Sonia always seems to channel her fun loving personality into her songs and this new song demonstrates her versatility as a Songwriter. It intensifies our thirst f
