Single Review: Zac Brown Band – ‘Toes’

Everybody who is sick and tired of Kenny Chesney’s brand of island-themed hits should definitely take a listen to the Zac Brown Band’s latest single, ‘Toes’.  Come to think of it, it would behoove Chesney to take a few notes on this one, too.  He just might learn a thing or two about how to […]

Single Review: Zac Brown Band – ‘Homegrown’

Even though their music is not always strictly country, the Zac Brown Band has been one of the few bright spots at country radio in recent years. Much of their music to date has been a hybrid of country and the type of pop played on Top 40 radio stations back in the 70s. With […]

Single Review: Zac Brown Band – ‘Highway 20 Ride’

I confess that I hadn’t paid much attention to the Zac Brown Band all through the chart run of their three big hits to date, culminating in ‘Toes’ this past summer. I didn’t really pay them any attention at all until I saw their fiddle-heavy live cover of ‘The Devil Went Down To Georgia’ on […]

Year In Review: J.R. Journey’s Top 10 Singles

The consensus among country bloggers and critics alike seems to be that 2009 was one of the weakest years in country music history.  I admit that I didn’t have to whittle my list down as much as I did last year, but it was still easy enough to find ten top-rate songs to call my […]
