    Devil in the Woodpile - Hard-country hillbilly Marty Stuart is always pickin' on Nashville.

    In Bloom - Spring has sprung with a fresh crop of recent Houston-related releases.

    Ashbury Keys, Wake Up: Keep an eye on Ashbury Keys. The Houston trio's Wake Up EP is a reminder of that odd point in rock history when straight-up-the-middle bands like Semisonic and Matchbox 20 somehow got passed off as "alternative." You can hear f...

    Ray Wylie Hubbard

    Ray Wylie Hubbard's new album, The Grifter's Hymnal, continues the Oklahoma-born songwriter's 21st-century winning streak that began with 2003's Growl. It seems the older the Texas troubadour gets, the dirtier and more decadent his material becomes. ...
