Two debuts and an album from an artist new to me keep me on my toes with this particular review roundup.
Favorite Hit Country Songs of 1992
The peak of ’90s country, in my opinion.
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.
The Boom-or-Bust Jukebox – #4 (2023): (Catie Offerman, Billy Strings feat. Willie Nelson, Turnpike Troubadours, Molly Tuttle)
Been a long time gone, good to see you, my old friend.
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.
Album Review: Bella White – ‘Among Other Things’
Bella White’s Among Other Things is challenging, but, among other things, a robust next step.
World Records, No. 12: George Jones – ‘I Am What I Am’ (1980)
George Jones certainly is what he is, but at least here, it’s a better version of himself.
