Known for her faith ("Jesus, Take the Wheel," 2021's My Savior), fire ("Before He Cheats"), and fearlessness ("Two Black Cadillacs"), Carrie Underwood has said her ninth album is her "fun" record . . . and she delivers. Denim & Rhinestones is pure country pop—for the most part, the country here is Underwood's twang—that you can imagine an arena full of people singing along to. Since her American Idol win in 2005, Underwood has always been polished, no raw edge showing. Her talents are almost inhuman; so big and perfect is her voice, it can sometimes overwhelm. But that belting is put to delightful effect here for the title track, which is kissed with smooth '80s R&B flavor. "Crazy Angels," meanwhile, embraces that era's pop-rock radio hits: It's super-sized and catchy, with slick guitar and anthemic lyrics meant for hollering along: "Yes, I'm one of those crazy angels/ Tilted halo with a neon shine/ Call me one of those crazy angels/ Even good girls wanna have a good time/ Heaven knows I'm flying low tonight." Underwood borrows a classic-rock guitar line and unleashes the full power of her soprano on "Poor Everybody Else," and goes for  Miranda Lambert-style mischievous playfulness on "Velvet Heartbreak." She haunts an ex-love on the sweeping grand drama of "Ghost Story" ("There ain't enough whiskey for you not to miss me/ I'll be waiting at the bottom of the bottle in the dark"), and it's easy to imagine it being a pop crossover hit with a little production trickery. "Wanted Woman," though, doesn't even need that; it's ready to be a summer pop hit with the right airplay. "Hate My Heart"—one of the album's nine co-writes with Hillary Lindsey, who easily ranks among Nashville's best contemporary songwriters (Keith Urban's "Blue Ain't Your Color," Little Big Town's "Girl Crush")—meanwhile, is ready for an arena stage. It also shows that, while Underwood may worship Dolly, her vocal power is the spiritual descendent of Shania. Shameless slow-burn guitar and the sweeping chimes of Top 40 R&B dress up the soulful love ballad "Faster," and a doo-wop beat drives "Pink Champagne." And traditional country gets its due near the end of the album with "She Don't Know"—although even that turns the classic cheating song on its head: "Joke's on her and that bed she's lying in," Underwood sasses. "What she don't know is, she can have him!" © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz

The Past, Present and Future of Black Country Artists

For decades, country music has been largely shut off to Black artists. There have been notable, even iconic, exceptions throughout history, of course. But there are too few of those, to the point that their success was often treated as novelty. There were also too many performers who should have made it big but were forced into stereotypes that didn't comfortably fit. Fortunately, there have been signs of hope in the past few years—hope that feels like a lot more than just good intentions and lip service. This tribute explores the history, and promising future, of Black artists in country music.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.

The Resilience and Rebellion of Lucinda Williams

If you're looking for Lucinda Williams' worldview in her music, it can be found somewhere between "Drunken Angel," and "Get Right With God." Coupled with genuine empathy for the foibles of humanity—and respect for the allure, urgency and wreck 'n' ruin of relationships—Williams has always had a healthy awe for the powers of good and evil, a looming sense of the vigilant almighty. From the album's title to the worried cover photo, a sense of misgiving hangs over the songs on her compelling new album, Good Souls Better Angels.
