My Favorite Non-Country Albums Growing Up – Part 1

Okay, I realize this is a country blog and that I make a point of making sure everything I post on here is related to country, Americana or roots in some way.

Plus, much of the albums I am about to describe incorporate country and folk influences in some way, or even settle under the category of alt pop, something that some of our artists could easily fall under. This week I will take you through part one of this series, and next week I will finish it off with my other four picks to total eight non-country album recommendations from 2002 through to 2010.

After all, it is Christmas, and we accept everybody in at Christmas. Except those in-laws we so despise. Anyway.

New article (Kelly Clarkson review!)

GYI0050959322.jpg

Kelly Clarkson is controversial when involved in a discussion about her ties to country music. Should she have been nominated for Female Vocalist Of The Year at this year’s CMA Awards? That’s up to you to decide. I reviewed her new single, ‘Don’t Rush’ with Vince Gill, and discussed all these country issues.
