ToC Critic’s Pick: Drake White, ‘Spark’

If Drake White's Spark album could walk and talk it'd be the most popular kid in school. Twelve feel-good tracks make up the Alabama-raised singer's debut. There's room for smiles and hurt, depth and frivolity. You'll laugh, love and feel better about yourself after an hour spent.

Album Spotlight: Jon Pardi, ‘California Sunrise’

There’s a certain tempo that Jon Pardi works best in on California Sunrise. It’s a mellow stampede that leaves room for his personal storytelling and naturally rowdy inclinations. The best songs on the singer’s sophomore album reside there.

ToC Critic’s Pick: Brandy Clark, ‘Big Day in a Small Town’

Great albums include great songs, and Brandy Clark’s Big Day in a Small Town is fat with them. The singer’s songwriting relationship with Shane McAnnally is among country’s most delightful pairings. They’re simply working on another level.
