“Any Day Is A Good Day” sung by Amber Hayes and written by Amber Hayes, Bill DiLuigi and JP Williams is a soft, traditional country ballad. Hayes’ strong, controlled vocals combined with the thoughtful lyrics and the scaled-back production create a very pleasing song to the listener. I especially enjoyed the infusion of the steel guitar throughout the song–sadly you don’t hear it quite enough for my taste in many country songs any more. Continue Reading →

Earning their fastest charting and seventh career No. one single this week, GRAMMY winning country trio Lady Antebellum’s “Downtown” takes the top position on both the Billboard and Mediabase charts while simultaneously selling more than 500,000 digital downloads. “Downtown” also spent the last two weeks at No. one in Canada and is the lead single off the group’s upcoming fourth studio album GOLDEN, available in stores May 7.
“Most of what the world has seen from Hillary from a radio single standpoint is this very sweet kind of style like ‘American Honey,’” said Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “But, she’s got a lot of sass and a lot of grit to her voice, too, so it’s been really fun to bring that out of her and have this kind of support from our fans and radio.” Continue Reading →

No one has to tell John Corbett that Hollywood stars moonlighting as musicians don’t always get taken seriously. He’s already faced crowds full of skeptics wearing expectant looks that silently challenge, “All right, actor boy, show us what you’ve got.”
But Corbett’s never had a problem doing just that, onstage with his band or on radio airwaves. His self-titled debut album, released in 2006, climbed to No. 42 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart, surprising even the guy who rose to fame as Cicely, Alaska’s resident radio deejay on the “Northern Exposure” TV series (and made women swoon in “Sex and the City” and “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”).
With his new album, Leaving Nothin’ Behind, on his own Funbone Records label, Corbett confirms what fans of John Corbett quickly recognized: He was never just moonlighting in the first place. Growing up in the shadow of Wheeling, W.Va.’s famed Capitol Music Hall, just a few miles from where Brad Paisley was raised, music was always Corbett’s first love. He’s been playing since he can remember.
“I never for a second dreamed that I could make a living making music, except probably when I was a freshman in high school and would daydream about what it would be like to be in Kiss or Styx or something,” he admits, laughing. “But I always had a guitar with me.”
