Casey Donahew Band Looks to Follow Up Success of a Top 10 Album with ‘Standoff’ – CD Review

Casey Donahew has been a staple on the Texas music scene and on the regional charts for the better part of the last decade. Casey has created a solid fan base in the southwest over the years, but saw his success reach another level with the 2011 release of his fourth studio CD, 'Double-Wide Dream, which shot to #10 on the US Country charts

Luke Bryan, ‘Crash My Party’ – Song Review

Luke Bryan's new song 'Crash My Party' would fit well on his last album 'Tailgates and Tanlines.' The ballad is a continuation of themes introduced with 'I Don't Want This Night to End' and 'Drunk on You,' two No. 1 hits for the ACM Entertainer of the Year. At first listen, it's difficult to become excited about a song that's so familiar.

Scotty McCreery, ‘See You Tonight’ – Song Review

Scotty McCreery makes his songwriting debut on 'See You Tonight,' a mid-tempo love song that finds the 19-year-old not settling for a phone call or some distant "I love you" from the girl who holds his heart. It's the start of a new chapter for McCreery -- one that's much more important than his last.

Brad Paisley, ‘Wheelhouse’ – Album Review

Brad Paisley's 'Wheelhouse' delivers a familiar mix of humor, life lessons and scorching guitar solos, but it does it in a way different from any of the other eight albums the 'Beat This Summer' singer has released. He took his old formula, balled it up, lit it on fire and tossed the ashes in the garbage. The result is a meaty and ambitious project that doesn't always click, but clears new ground when it does.

Hunter Hayes New Song is ‘I Want Crazy’

Hunter Hayes newest song 'I Want Crazy' is the first song from his yet to be released album. While I was watching Hunter on the Academy of Country Music awards Sunday night, I began wondering "where is Hunter Hayes headed in his young career?" By the sounds on this lead single, Hayes clearly wants to show some maturity and restraint. By not letting his vocals wander in falsetto land, (like he's done in his last three singles.) There are a lot of lyrics that Hunter fits into 3 minutes and 57 seconds. It's a toe tapping, uptempo, begging for a good time song. Check it out.

Carrie Underwood, ‘See You Again’ – Song Review

Carrie Underwood changed directions with the release of 'See You Again' as the fourth single from 'Blown Away.' The ballad is anything but dark and stormy. Instead it's an inspirational reminder that will be especially meaningful to fans who have lost someone close recently.

‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ Reviewed By Nathan, My 13-Year Old Son

My 13-year old son, Nathan, has become quite a fan of movies lately. And as is the case with most teenagers, he has an opinion about pretty much everything. So I figured we could combine his appreciation for cinema and hearing himself speak, and have him review the movies he goes to see.

Maggie Rose, ‘Better’ – Song Review

'Better' is the finest ballad from Maggie Rose's new 'Cut to Impress' album. The singer is creative with her phrasing, and the performance is as raw as anything on the 10-song collection. She is still learning how to be a great storyteller, however, and with more experiences and a few years behind her, the single promises to only get... better.

Josh Ward’s New Single, ‘Sent Me You’ Will Move You – Song Review

Josh Ward stopped by the KEAN-105 studios and dropped off his new single recently. While Josh writes or co-writes most of his own music, he was so moved by a song written by his friend, Scott Brown (The Scooter Brown Band), that he asked permission to record it for his CD 'Promises'. Brown granted permission, the song was recorded, and now it's Ward's newest single. And one of the most heartfelt songs you might hear on the radio these days.

Will Hoge (Feat. Wade Bowen), ‘Another Song Nobody Will Hear’ – Song Review

Will Hoge may be playing to the band with his new single 'Another Song Nobody Will Hear,' but that takes nothing away from his impactful message. The singer-songwriter's ode to struggling musicians is a sharply-written statement about mainstream country music, sung with unique blue-collar spit and gravel.

Jon Pardi, ‘Up All Night’ – Song Review

Jon Pardi tosses a pinch of Bakersfield sound into his brand of country music. It came through more clearly on his debut single 'Missin' You Crazy,' but the follow-up, 'Up All Night,' still relies on a heavy guitar lick and Pardi's Dwight Yoakam-influenced singing style.

Album Spotlight: The Band Perry, ‘Pioneer’ – ToC Critic’s Pick

The Band Perry's new album 'Pioneer' is just as dramatic, yet dramatically more steady than their debut effort. The bar was raised and reached vocally, and songs like 'Done,' 'Forever Mine Nevermind' and 'Chainsaw' prove the family trio has lost nothing in terms of lyrical edge.
