Few albums released in 2016 will have the lyrical integrity of Reckless, Martina McBride's first album on Nash Icon Records. Each of the 10 songs hits like red wine on an empty stomach, with the buzz growing stronger the more you sip.
“Used to Love You Sober” is a fine representative for Kane Brown’s new Chapter 1 EP. With one exception, the newcomer relies on a throaty delivery of spoken word-to-crooning lyrics to tell stories of love or love lost. He’s as advertised.

With Down to My Last Bad Habit, Vince Gill introduces himself to a younger generation of country music fans without sacrificing the lyricism, integrity and compelling blend of styles he's been known for for decades.
