Stoney Larue: Happiness is a Warm Harley
Stoney LarueIt’s Friday afternoon, and from the sound of his voice over the phone line, it’s obvious that Stoney Larue is one happy boy.  Relaxing on his tour bus that’s currently headed for a show that evening at Schroeder Hall outside of Goliad, Texas, he enjoys a favorite soda and a pecan praline purchased moments before at an interstate convenience store.  Hey, life on the road is even better when you’ve got afternoon comfort snacks. more >

The Gougers - A Long Day For the Weathervane
The GougersThe latest installment from the group formally known as the “Sidehill Gougers,” is likely the best Americana record of 2007. At least in this music journalist's view of the Americana music world, it gets my vote. The Gougers have always been good, but this record is fantastic. It is a leap forward for a cool band that can deliver pleasure to the ears and mind. more >
Adam Fears - You Get Me
Adam FearsBefore I get into the review of Adam Fears’ You Get Me, I want to point out that Adam is originally from Texas, but he lives, writes, and records in Nashville. I mention that fact only so you can — if a connection to Music Town bothers you — get over it. This record is firmly rooted in Texan soil. To know this, all you have to do is look at the liner notes. In true Texas/Red Dirt form, all the songs were written or cowritten by Fears. more >
