Chances are that you missed the song and artist on this one, but I didn't, so I'd like to share this group with you. Last week on American Idol, young Quaid Edwards tried out in front of the judges and revealed that his mother's group, Jolie and the Wanted had worked with Keith Urban in their early careers.
In the mid 90's, when so many new, young, male artists were coming out, it was hard to keep track of them. I think that was what sealed the fate of David Kersh, a super-talented artist, that just kind of faded into the background of too many new singers. One single that made it to number 3, but went into country music obscurity shortly after was 'Another You,' a song written by a then unknown so
Today, we delve back into the years of country music and the tunes that just didn't get the national attention I believe they deserved. This one was one of those songs, and a song that should be played not only on Mother's Day, but all the time. It's Randy Travis' ode to mom called 'Angels'.
Trent Willmon is a name you might've heard a few times in country music. Then again, you may have never heard the name. He's tried over and over to put out a big hit, but has fallen sort. You may be familiar with his song 'Beer Man' or even the fun titled 'Dixie Rose Deluxe's Honky Tonk, Feed Store, Gun Shop, Used Car, Beer, Bait, BBQ, Barber Shop, Laundromat.' But one tune should've been his
It's time again to go back to the obscure archives to songs that were good, but didn't make it as big as they should have. Here's a band that could've been the next big thing. Ryan Shupe and The Rubberband came out at a time country was really lacking in bands. Beside Rascal Flatts, there wasn't much else.
You may have never heard her name before, but chances are you're very familiar with the songs she has written. Matraca Berg was responsible for big number one hits, including her most recent, Kenny Chesney's "You and Tequila."
This family band has been through a lot of incarnations. I swear at one point The Clark Family had about 17 members. If you were at the Carrie Underwood concert at Roberts Stadium this past December, you saw the latest group, consisting of only three Clarks and a very rocked-up sound, called "Sons of Sylvia."
It was almost like this one vanished from the radio and so did its artist. Dean Brody gave us this great tune a couple of years ago, and I thought it was fitting with 4th of July around the corner. Check out the video for "Brothers"
Father's Day is this Sunday and there are a ton of songs that speak to and from dads in country music. This one from Tracy Lawrence slipped under the rug for most country listeners just a few years ago, but I understand it now more than I ever did back then. Check out the video to "Til I Was a Daddy Too."
