A more reserved effort makes for a solid next step for Chapel Hart.

World Records, No. 16: Reba McEntire – ‘My Kind of Country’ (1984)
Just adding to the resume, really.
Album Review: Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives – ‘Altitude’
Altitude is a companion album that gains its own ground, and a personal favorite of mine for the year.
Album Review: Brandy Clark – ‘Brandy Clark’
Brandy Clark may have just found her groove.
Clusterpluck Album Reviews: The Malpass Brothers, Stephen Wilson Jr., and Bailey Zimmerman
Defying expectations all around.
World Records, No. 15: The Judds, ‘Why Not Me’ (1984)
Another link in the neotraditional wave, in its own way.
Clusterpluck Album Reviews: Del Barber, Logan Halstead, and Megan Moroney
Two debuts and an album from an artist new to me keep me on my toes with this particular review roundup.
World Records, No. 14: George Strait – ‘Strait From the Heart’ (1982)
The oddball album of George Strait’s discography, but also one I think has aged well.
World Records, No. 13: Merle Haggard – ‘Back to the Barrooms’ (1980)
An interesting window into a short-lived but well-received time period of Merle Haggard’s career.
Album Review: Kip Moore – ‘Damn Love’
It’s likely a label swan song, but if so, Kip Moore still managed to make one of his best albums in years.
