Kid rock has been working around the 'edges' of country music for about five or six years now and while this record isn't exclusively a 'country' album, it's heartland rock certainly can and will appeal to many fans of today's country sound.
Traditional country music may not be all that mainstream these days but that doesn't mean that there arent artists out there making it. Dallas Wayne is one such artist and he returns after a brief hiatus with his latest album.
With the release of this ambitious two-disc set, Bryan Clark has managed to cover multiple facets of Roots (or Americana) music in a unique way that shows off his vocal, songwriting and instrumental abilities.
What this album proves is that country music has a wide array of artists working in the genre. "The Stars Are Out" runs through rootsy sounds of music of yesterday and today with equal amounts of sinserity.
Probably best known as the songwriter of "Can't Let Go," Randy Weeks is nonetheless an interesting singer-songwriter with strongly written songs that are both insanely catchy and literally better than your average album of any genre.
