Stapleton, a big-voiced howler who got his start as a Nashville songwriter, has become a star specifically by going against the Nashville grain, presenting a gruff and soulful version of country-rock. Lots of other musicians are making similar kinds of country, but none of them have been embraced by the country establishment quite like Stapleton. Last night, the Country Music Association held its annual CMA Awards in Nashville, and Stapl...

How Randy Bachman Found His Stolen Favorite Guitar After 45 Years, with the Help of Facial-Recognition Software

Facial-recognition technology has come into its own in recent decades, though its imagined large-scale uses do tend to sound troublingly dystopian. Still, some of its actual success stories have been pleasing indeed, few of them so much as the one briefly told in the video above by Bachman Turner Overdrive’s Randy Bachman. Its protagonist is not Bachman himself but one of his guitars: a 1957 Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins, a model named after the star Nashville guitarist. “This is the first re...

Filmmakers Andrew and Jon Erwin weren’t sure what to do with themselves after the COVID-19 pandemic shut things down in 2020, but then, like a voice from above, inspiration struck. “Our producing partner said, ‘You know, nobody’s ever looked at a kind of origin story of the history of Christian music,’” Andrew Erwin says recently by phone from Nashville. The Erwin brothers, whose production company specializes in faith-based films such as the 2018 drama “I Can Only Imagine” and the forthcoming “...

Premature Evaluation: Kacey Musgraves star-crossed

Kacey Musgraves knew her fairytale couldn’t last. She put it right there in the middle of the fairytale. “I’m the kind of person who starts getting kinda nervous when I’m having the time of my life,” she sang on “Happy & Sad,” one of the many sighing folk-pop gems on 2018’s Golden Hour. On most of those songs, the bliss crowded out the doubts. There were outliers — the spectacular breakup anthem “Space Cowboy,” the indignant country-disco banger “High Horse,” the tender piano ballads “Mother” an...

50 years later, these are the most influential albums of 1971

If you could only listen to the popular music of a single year in history, what would you pick? Actually, never mind. The correct answer is 1971 and no other will be accepted, because 50 years later, the music of 1971 remains as vital, as influential, as unsurpassed as ever it was. Sure, the top single of the year was Three Dog Night’s “Joy To The World,” and depending on how you feel about talking bullfrogs that may or may not be your thing. But if you were to spin the AM radio dial that year y...

How the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Prince and more became photographic icons

For Gered Mankowitz, a rock ‘n’ roll photographer in England in the ’60s, it was a constant fight to have the pictures he made of artists such as the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and the Small Faces taken seriously. “It was the packaging, it was something to knock off, it was a glossy to be given to a magazine,” Mankowitz says on a recent video call. “And yet I and dozens of my contemporaries were trying so hard to make the best of it, to try and do something special, stretch the genre, and give...
