If You’re Tryin’ You Ain’t

By

Toby Keith

 

About the artist

With most contemporary country artists, you could guarantee that a song called “American Ride” would be a slice of jingoism, but Toby Keith isn’t like most country singers. His “American Ride” casts a cynical eye at desperate housewives and wannabe pop stars, not celebrating down-home values but wondering where we’re all headed on this American Ride at the end of the 2000s, a sentiment not all that far removed form some of Keith’s previous social commentary, which makes it a mild surprise that it is the only song here that doesn’t come from his own pen. As superb and striking as it is, it’s not necessarily a good keystone for the rest of the record, which does have a few tougher numbers that pick up on the lean, mean vibe of 2008’s That Don’t Make Me a Bad Guy — “Every Dog Has Its Day,” the sly “If I Had One,” and the heavy blues stomp “Loaded” — but spends more time on the softer side, even when he kicks up a bit of dust on the dancefloor on “You Can’t Read My Mind” or does a funny, respectful salute to military life on “Ballad of Balad.” In other words, the “real” touchstone for the rest of the record is “Tender as I Wanna Be,” where he lets his guard down and lets the romance flow. This doesn’t turn American Ride into a schizophrenic jumble, as Keith has always balanced these two extremes, but after spending a little bit more time swaggering than wooing, he’s back to crooning and it’s amiable and appealing, if not overwhelming.

Blowin’ Smoke

By

Kacey Musgraves

 

About the artist

Kacey Musgraves could easily be contemporary country’s next big thing. She’s a sharp, detailed songwriter with a little bit of an edge, and while it’s tempting to think of her as another coming of Taylor Swift, say, she’s got the kind of relaxed sureness about what she’s doing as a songwriter and performer that puts her closer to a Miranda Lambert. On her first nationally distributed album, Same Trailer Different Park, she definitely sounds more on the Lambert side of things, with a sparse, airy sound that lets her lyrics shine, and she’d as soon use a banjo in her arrangements as a snarling Stratocaster. From her debut single, the marvelous “Merry Go ‘Round” (which is included here as the third track), Musgraves showed an intelligent, careful writing style that is as pointed as it is poignant, and even though the song seems to skewer small-town country life, it does it without malice or agenda, and is really more just telling it true than anything else, a trait that ought to be treasured in Nashville but usually isn’t. Nashville wants one to tell it true as long as that telling conforms to the template, which Musgraves isn’t likely to do. “Merry Go ‘Round” might be the best song here, but there are others that are nearly as good, like the lilting, wise opener, “Silver Lining,” the implausible “Dandelion” (one wonders how she manages to make such a winning song out of such a metaphor, but she does), and the gutsy (and again, wise) “Follow Your Arrow,” all of which feature clear-eyed observations, unintrusive but appropriate arrangements, and a certain flair for telling it like it is and making it sound like bedrock, obvious wisdom. Musgraves has a sense of humor, too, and all of these traits add up to make Same Trailer Different Park more than a collection of songs just aiming for the country charts.

Thanks A Lot

By

Randy Travis

About the artist

Like the Beatles in rock, Randy Travis marks a generational shift in country music. When his Storms of Life came out in 1986, country music was still wallowing in the post-urban cowboy recession, chasing elusive crossover dreams. Travis brought the music back to its basics, sounding like nothing so much as a perfect blend of George Jones and Merle Haggard. He became the dominant male voice in country until the rise of “hat acts” like Garth Brooks and Clint Black, releasing seven consecutive number one singles during one stretch. He won the CMA’s Horizon Award in 1986 and was the association’s Male Vocalist of the Year in 1987 and 1988.
Travis (born Randy Bruce Traywick in 1959) was born and raised in North Carolina, in a small town outside of Charlotte. His father encouraged his children to pursue their musical inclinations, as he was a fan of honky tonkers like Hank Williams, Jones, and Lefty Frizzell. Randy began playing guitar at the age of eight, and within two years, he and his brother Ricky formed a duo called the Traywick Brothers. The duo played in local clubs and talent contests. Both of the brothers had a wild streak, which resulted in Ricky going to jail after a car chase and Randy running away to Charlotte at the age of 16. While he was in Charlotte, he won a talent contest at Country City U.S.A., a bar owned by Lib Hatcher. Hatcher was impressed by Travis and offered him a regular gig at her bar, as well as a job as a cook.
For several years, he sang and worked at Country City. He still had trouble with the law in his late teens. At his last run-in with the police, the judge told him if he saw Travis again he should be prepared to go to jail for a long time. Travis was released into the care of Hatcher. In a short time, Hatcher became Travis’ manager, and the pair began to concentrate on his career. Joe Stampley helped Travis land a contract with Paula Records in 1978. The following year, Travis released two singles under his given name; one of them, “She’s My Woman,” scraped the bottom of the country charts. In 1982, Travis and Hatcher moved to Nashville, where she managed the Nashville Palace nightclub while he sang and cooked. Within a couple of years, the pair independently released his debut album under the name Randy Ray; the record was called Randy Ray Live and sold primarily in the Nashville Palace.
Thanks to Hatcher’s persistent efforts and the Randy Ray Live album, Warner Bros. signed Travis in 1985 and suggested that he change his performing name to Randy Travis. “On the Other Hand,” his first single for the label, was released in the summer of that year and climbed to number 67. Despite its lackluster performance, radio programmers were enthusiastic for Travis, as evidenced by the number six placing of “1982,” which was released late in the year. “1982” was followed by a re-release of “On the Other Hand” in the spring of 1986. This time, the song hit number one.
Storms of Life, Travis’ full-fledged debut album, was released in the summer of 1986 and became a huge success, eventually selling over three million copies. Travis was the first country artist to go multi-platinum; before his success, most country artists had difficulty achieving gold status. With his mass appeal, he set the stage for country music’s crossover success in the early ’90s. However, Travis dominated the late ’80s. The last two singles from Storms of Life, “Diggin’ Up Bones” and “No Place Like Home,” hit number one and two, respectively. “Forever and Ever, Amen” — the first single from his second album, 1987’s Always & Forever — began a streak of seven straight number one singles that ran through 1989. Always & Forever was more successful than his debut, reaching number 19 on the pop charts and going quadruple platinum; it also earned him the CMA’s award for Male Vocalist of the Year. Old 8×10 (1988) and No Holdin’ Back (1989) weren’t quite as successful as their predecessors, but they still spawned number one singles and both went platinum.
Travis was still at the top of his form in the beginning of the ’90s, starting the decade with his biggest hit, “Hard Rock Bottom of Your Heart.” However, his hold at the top of the charts began to slip after Clint Black and, in particular, Garth Brooks. Nevertheless, Travis never fell away completely — his albums continued to gold and he usually could crack the Top Ten. Wind in the Wire, a soundtrack to his television special released in 1992, marked his first unsuccessful album — none of the singles broke the Top 40. This Is Me, released in 1994, was a successful comeback to the top of the charts, featuring “Whisper My Name,” his first number one hit in two years. In August 1996, Travis released Full Circle, his last album for Warner Bros.. He left the label in 1997, signing with the fledgling “super” label DreamWorks. His first album for the label, You and You Alone, was released in the spring of 1998; Man Ain’t Made of Stone followed a year later.
Traveling the familiar country route, he released an album of traditional and contemporary religious songs, Inspirational Journey, which hit the stores in late 2000. The album went on to win two awards at the Gospel Music Association’s 32nd Annual Dove Awards in 2001; Inspirational Journey took home honors for Country/Bluegrass Album of the Year and Country Recorded Song of the Year for “Baptism.” Selected songs from the album also made their way into the two-part finale for “Touched by an Angel”, which featured Travis in character. Two years later, Travis continued with his gospel fare with the release of Rise and Shine, followed by the similarly reverent Worship & Faith, Passing Through, and Glory Train. Around the Bend appeared in 2008. In 2011, he released Anniversary Celebration, which featured Travis performing duets with Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Don Henley, Alan Jackson, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Carrie Underwood, and others, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his recording career.
