Little Big Town – The Breaker (2017)

🌟🌟🌟   I really like Little Big Town but unfortunately only about half of the songs on The Breaker captured my interest. What I do appreciate is the more grown-up sound that seems to be fast disappearing from country/pop acts that seem to be competing with each other to capture the party vibe.Β  The closest […]

Kelsea Ballerini – The First Time (2015)

🌟🌟🌟🌟½ I wish I’d blogged about this album when I first listened to it in January of this year so I couldn’t be accused of seeing it through rose-tinted “I just saw her in concert” glasses.Β  I love every song on it and did so back on first discovery but it would be foolish not […]

Lady Antebellum @ The O2, London (10 October 2017)

Concert promoters take note – how you make concert goers happy and give them value for money is provide them with not one but two opening acts who have each put out successful debut albums and could probably, as Lady A said themselves, headline concerts in their own right. An hour after the doors opened, […]

Eli Young Band – Fingerprints (2017)

🌟🌟🌟½   I love Eli Young Band’s past two albums.Β  Looking through my iTunes I can see that I liked every single track on Life At Best and the majority of 10,000 Towns.Β  It’s a little bit of a shock to me that their discography goes back further than those two hit albums so I’ll […]

Brett Young – Brett Young (2017)

🌟🌟 I decided to check out Brett Young as soon as I saw he was going to be a support act for Lady Antebellum’s tour.Β  Whether I would have tried him out otherwise, I’m not sure. I am certainly not going to rave about how his debut album is a must-hear or the best thing […]
