Vince Gill “Just Pleasing You”
from Kin (Vanguard 2012) —Professor of literature, Mary Karr co-writes ten songs with one of the best in the business. Guest artists make this a fine release.
Hank Williams III “I'm a Long Gone Daddy”
from Long Gone Daddy (Curb 2012) —Talent and taste skip a generation as Tricephus mixes up covers and originals in the honky tonk style.
The Time Jumpers “On the Outskirts of Town”
from The Time Jumpers (Rounder 2012) —Everyone misses Papa John Hughey but Paul Franklin is an able sub on pedal steel and the addition of Vince's vocals and guitar makes their Rounder debut a winner.
Iris DeMent “The Night I Learned How Not to Pray”
from Sing the Delta (Flariella Records 2012) N —The seven-year wait for new Iris DeMent material was worth it. This music touches something deep inside me.
Dwight Yoakam “Take Hold of My Hand”
from 3 Pears (Warner 2012) N —The first Dwight release in seven years finds him near the top of his game, although the songwriting isn't as strong as previous material.
Rodney Crowell “I’m a Mess”
from KIN (Vanguard 2012) —We were asked to name a song of the year--impossible task--but here's a good candidate.
