L.A. to Miami was Keith Whitley's breakthrough album. While it contains several chart-topping hits, including "Homecoming '63," "Hard Livin'," "Love at Ten Feet Away," and "Miami, My Amy," the album suffers as a whole from a lack of tempo change. The consistent laid-back approach becomes a bit too mellow, tending to drag the album down. Even though there was a lack of honky tonk material on the album, Whitley would adjust that on his follow-up release, Don't Close Your Eyes. By the way, the album also includes "On the Other Hand," which became Randy Travis' first minor hit, also released in 1985.

The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.

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.
