August 16th brings us new music from Eli Young Band and Jeff Bridges…
This week we have two albums that most casual fans would probably never hear of, let alone listen to. If you are looking to expand your listening from mainstream country music, this is your week!
Eli Young Band – Life at Best
EYB leads off “Life at Best” with the single “Crazy Girl, the perfect introduction that will lead the listener through a journey mixed with country twang, the feel of the Eagles and Tom Petty, and do I dare say… U2. There is a very different sound from track to track on this album, but like all good country music, the steel guitar is present plenty (not that you can have too much). Excellent Album.

Jeff Bridges – Jeff Bridges
Jeff Bridges new album is his first, although he was responsible for many tracks on the Crazy Heart sound track. This album is worth a listen. The man known as Rooster Cogburn (True Grit) and “The Dude” (The Big Lebowski) is now a full-fledged musician. This is an album for the serious country music fan, due to the from-the-heart lyrics and the true to life feel.
There is only one new album this week, but it is not just any album… it is Trace Adkins’ new release Proud to Be Here! You really need to check this out. It is a winner. “Just Fishin’” is the first single (watch it below). Other notable tracks are “If I Was A Woman” featuring Blake Shelton, “Poor Folks”, and “Semper Fi”, a salute to those serving in the United States Marine Corps. Continue reading →
