This Guy Is The Hottest Songwriter In Pop

Many songs on Juice WRLD's Death Race For Love, the reigning #1 album in America, made me laugh out loud. A track called "HeMotions," for instance, is already hilarious coming from an emo-informed SoundCloud sing-rapper who made his name on misogynistic self-pity, even before you even factor in lyrics like these: "Going through … More »

You're Going to Lose Your Mind (Just a Little) Now That Maren Morris Is Blond

Maren Morris is now blond - and not just a little. The country star revealed her new golden hair color while performing at her album release party on March 11 at the iHeartRadio Theater. While the "Middle" singer has been sporting a blond ombré style for a while, she chopped her hair into a chin-length bob in February and then followed up by coloring her hair blond with shadow roots this month. She looks so good as a blonde that we hope she takes the platinum plunge soon and turns even her roots...

Maren Morris Is A Little Bit Springsteen, A Little Bit Teenage Dream

Tucked near the end of Maren Morris' new album GIRL is a lovely little tune called "The Bones." Like many Morris songs, it's not about the art of songwriting but could just as easily be an allegory for her expertise in that area. In "The Bones," a busted old house that has weathered the elements … More »

Album Review: Maren Morris Is Good for Pop, but Pop Isn’t Good for Her

This country singer-songwriter showed she is not tied to country music’s rules. But her pop hit, “The Middle,” may have pushed her new album, “Girl,” onto shakier ground.

KFRG 95.1/FM’s Vicki Pepper talks women in country music, who to look out for at Stagecoach and the station’s All-Girl Power Hour

Last month’s 61st Annual Grammy Awards ceremony didn’t just end up serving mostly as a celebration of women in music, but more specifically a celebration of women in country music. Singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves was a big winner that night, taking home all four trophies for which she was nominated including best country album and album of the year for “Golden Hour.” Folk, Americana and alternative country artist Brandi Carlile also had a spectacular evening, picking up three awards for her al...

Maren Morris Takes Aim At The Invisible Walls Around Country Music On Girl

There’s a tightrope walk for any woman on country radio, an all-important format that remains a career-maker in the genre in 2019. According to recent research, women are only getting around 10% of airplay; by way of explanation, radio programmers habitually claim that listeners vote down women singers when their new songs are tested. The never-ending arguments about not sounding “country enough” is why Kacey Musgraves didn’t service singles off Golden Hour to country radio. It took a tour open...

Album Review: Maren Morris’ ‘Girl’

In another time and place, and certainly another genre, calling an album “Girl” wouldn’t seem like much of a provocation. But Maren Morris’ second release into the woman-parched field of country might make you think the title is meant at least in part as a subtle dare. The title track — and the album’s first […]

Stagecoach 2019: Grammy Award-winning DJ Diplo will headline the official after party on the Palomino Stage

Electronic dance music is so huge that even the Stagecoach Country Music Festival is getting into the mix. At first thought, having an internationally known, award-winning EDM artist such as L.A.-based producer Diplo play at a country music festival just doesn’t seem to fit. However, we’re talking about the annual Goldenvoice-produced country music festival, which has been known for blurring genre lines and in the last few years pulling together some pretty big surprises. Diplo — who snagged a G...

One Memorable Day in Gruene, Texas & the Iconic Gruene Hall

A highlight of a Texas Hill Country vacation has to be the small, historical town of Gruene, Texas. That is pronounced Green. 170 years ago, a German immigrant, Ernst Gruene, and his bride Antoinette went searching for farm land after learning that land was scarce at nearby New Braunfels. Just down the river they found land at Gruene Texas and grew a successful cotton business that brought more families to the area. It was a very profitable time and the town grew to include various homes, a mer...
