Little Big Town, ‘Tornado’ – Song Review
'Tornado' is a bold choice for Little Big Town's next single, as it takes on another storm song from a country music superstar with more clout -- Carrie Underwood. As an album, 'Tornado' is sharp and uncompromising, so this brashness should come as no surprise. Few will argu…
Faith Hill, ‘American Heart’ – Song Review
Faith Hill has a new album finished, but it seems fans won't get to hear it until a single sticks. 'American Heart' is at least the third new song fans nationwide have heard -- including 'Come Home' and the title track, 'Illusion,' played during the 'CMA Music…
Dustin Lynch, ‘Dustin Lynch’ – Album Review

Tight harmonies, vivid lyrics and skilled instrumentalists are enough to make a decent country music album, but it takes a talented producer to make it great. ‘The FARM’ is a fun 43 minute wall of sound, but there’s a polish on the record that’s …
Was “The Amazing Spider-man” Truly Amazing? [REVIEW]
I decided the best way to beat the heat this weekend was to spend a couple of hours lost in a movie.  I took my son to see "The Amazing Spider-man".  Yes.  I was one of the people that helped this fill gross $140 million in its first six days...
