Just jumping in here because I just saw Shakey's performance on Austin City Limits. Hot damn, he whipped it with a belt. Now I understand why people rave about his live set.

Also, that Ryan Adams...

That's actually a perfect summary of how I feel about it. And a perfect analogy/comparison with Mayer and Paradise Valley.

As always happens, the year flew by, too much music was released and I barely got my hands on any of it. Alas, here's the 30 albums that spoke the most to me. From living legends to fresh-faced...

I would too. That was my only problem with seeing him live. Truckers stuff is cool and all, but I like what he's tapping into on his solo stuff. Far richer. To me at least.

Have only heard "24 Frames" and "How to Forget," but like them quite a bit. Sounds to me like he wrote a Will Hoge record. Bummed to find there are only two ballads though. I love me some ballads.

I actually support much of Chris' arguments. Rucker's new single aside, he is not a bro country guy. He sings songs mostly about his wife and his Southern roots. Yes he took a left turn with...

Personally, I prefer his acoustic-based stuff, but this still gets me. I think it's his voice. Very warm and inviting. Thanks for reading, and more importantly, commenting!

Could not agree more. I just listened to the album and some of it came up a bit short. But then I remember how captivating they were live and how much they moved me. So glad to find someone else who...

Got to see the boys over the weekend on the Train/Matt Nathanson tour and have put this album back in rotation. I will say this, while it is definitely their weakest effort, it's not nearly as...
