Source: American Songwriter

When Chris Stapleton was approached to make a country record for a major label, he said he’d have to think about it. “It wasn’t something that was even on my brain at that point in time,” he recalls, modestly. On Music Row, Stapleton is a very familiar face, and not just because of the impressive beard. Over the last few years, he’s written No. 1 hits for Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Darius Rucker and Josh Turner. Plus he’s had more than 170 cuts ranging from Adele to George ...

Red Wanting Blue Little America (Fanatic) 3 out of 5 stars This veteran Columbus Ohio based quintet might have gone under the moniker of Red Wanting Blue for nearly the past two decades of their existence but at this point it really just sounds like frontman Scott Terry’s solo project. That’s not to negate the other band members who have kept the group alive by touring over 200 dates a year and defining a dogged work ethic that few of their American ...

Source: Splice Today
