Jonny Houlihan Dig

Always a pleasure for me to discover such talented artist !

I did not knew him only two days ago, then a reader of the magazine gave me the information it could be good I discover this guy! So thanks Renato and thanks Jonny to be one of the new Country Music artist I add to my long list of great discoveries.


Kip Moore - Wild World

Kip Moore is back... At Last and it worse to wait so long!

Discovering Kip Moore, back ''Up All Night'' his 2012 album, was a big blast! Loved this broken voice and great words, rythm and melodies. Then I did not refind that first feeling in his two next albums... So it is great to find all the things that shake me first.


Mike And The Moonpies - The Lost Songs Of Gary Stewart

Texan Country Music at his best !...

What a pleasure to discover in my own country in 2018 at ''The Green Espace Festival'' Mike and The Moonpies! Since that, I followed these guys with a always renew pleasure! The album will not broke that circle!


 

James Robert Webb

MAY

Traditional Country Music will always still alive and well!

James Robert Web is another example that shows you can be young but decide to turn the back to new tendances to create your own style. A talented new traditionalist singer-songwriter with a beautiful voice and (I hope !) a big futur bright star under Nashville, Tennessee skies !

JAMES WEBB's INTERVIEW (2020, June 1st)


 

Ashley McBryde - Never Will

APRIL

She is not another new girl singing country music and probably will never be!

I had the pleasure to see her live on stage last september at Country Night Festival, Gstaad (Switzerland) and could, at last, understand why she received son many rewards!


 

MARCH

Unbelievable songs, sophisticated and catchy. The first time you hear this album, you only have one wish: to listen it again and again! My deepest congratulations Ingrid!!! An album I will review with a deep pleasure in my 70th printed issue. You are one of the good reason I make this job: (sometime) discover jewell like this album!!!


 

 

Ray Scott  - Nowhere Near Done EP

I had the big pleasure to meet Ray (february 2015) at Billy Bob's saloon, Disneyland Paris for a video interveiw. I was already a big fan since so many year I cannot tell ;-). Ray Scott is this kind of rare artist who do not compromise and it is just what we can confirm in the great EP he launched these last days. I rated this album four stars as ''excellent album''. A pure Country without all these actual artificial sounds (and voices ?), we heard too many time those last years... Hope to see you again on (and out) of stage Ray. One of your faithfull fan from France


 

 

A third Summer US tour in a row! What a pleasure to see them, once again, on the road!!! See the dates


 

The Cadillac Three - Country fuzz

21st Century Country!

These guys do not respect anything... And it is good like that ! Why will they propose us a gentle Country Music?... Have they the look of people doing that!?!.. So no surprise, once again they mixed it with a good proportion of Rock and Blues... So gooood!! Cheers to Country Music rebels!


 
Billy Ray Cyrus ''Singin' Hill Sessions Vol.1

What a big pleasure to see Billy Ray Cyrus's back with a great 3 songs EP: The Singin' Hills Sessions Vol.1

1992, he made me discover what Country Music was so I am from a generation who considere Miley as Billy Ray's daughter and not Billy as Miley' father ;-)

I am glad to announce I will dedicace him a full page in Country music Mag, France 69th issue

Lauren Jenkins on Bruce Springsteen's covers

Covering Bruce Springsteen can be intimidating. No one can do Bruce like Bruce can. So instead of trying to copy Bruce, I brought my own truth to these two songs. I got to record these tracks with my friends as I hear them in my head when I’m tumbling down the highway or falling asleep at night. I chose not to change any of the lyrics, but instead brought a woman’s voice to a man’s story. To me, that approach brings a different layer to the song and a different perspective. I think the stripped down recordings show just how powerful these two songs are… even when they’re bare-boned.

"Stolen Car" and "Hungry Heart" are just that. They’ve been part of the soundtrack to my life and I’m so excited to share my take on them with you.

Lauren Jenkins

As a long time Bruce Springsteen's fan (1981) I wanted to express you my deepest congratulations for the great covers you made of these 2 iconic songs! more informations on: laurenjenkins.com

Another good news: Lauren will be in Europe from january 22nd to february 7th

 

Dustin Lynch - Tullahoma

January, 17th

A little desapointed by this album that will not be his best and definitively fed up with this mettalic voice effect so many artists used (and abused) now. Go back to your roots and raw voice Dustin, it was so good then!


 

Little Big Town - Nightfall

January, 17th

The return of this great vocal harmony quartet is always a big pleasure! And, may be more than ever with this master piece album. So soft voices we only have a need: to listen to them again and again!


 

January, 10th
