Successfully surviving a name change from Kate and the Retreads to KATE JAMES AND LOST COUNTRY was a fairly seamless transition for this feisty outfit. Good, sweet early-morning country, James and the boys - all seasoned vets - make the livin' easy with a cowboy hat full of catchy tunes. Released in May, "HomeWrecker, HeartBreaker", the band's debut release, is a late '60s/early '70s-inspired take on genteel country music, with a modern twist. "Country doesn't pretend to say something by saying something else," says James. Sing out, Sister Kate. "www.katejames.com" less...

One of the hardest rockin' "country" bands in town, Truckadelic are always a hit with the crowd, even when their audience can't see them. While headlining outdoors on Labor Day weekend at the Starlight Drive-In, these boys proved they're as unstoppable as a runaway Freightliner by playing their entire set in total darkness! (Suck on that, all you "can-I-get-a-little-more-guitar-in-the-monitor?" wimps out there!) less...

The Star Room Boys have studied the gospel according to Hank Williams and absorbed everything he had to teach them. Their recent album, Why Do Lonely Men and Women Want to Break Each Others Hearts?, couldn't be more aptly titled. The playing is immaculate, but more importantly it's gritty, honest and gut-wrenching — three things country music should never stray far from. If there's a better album to drink alone to this year, someone please send it over. less...
