A Nashville country rebel in the mold of Travis Tritt -- in other words, a defanged and marketing-driven pretty boy whose punkin head David Allan Coe or Waylon Jennings would smash a beer bottle over just on general principle -- Jake Owen makes his debut with the utterly formulaic Startin' with Me. Opening tracks "Bad in Me" and "Yee Haw" try so desperately hard to establish Owen's image as a bad-ass hellraiser that they finally become comical, and not the knowingly self-mocking Big & Rich kind of comical, either. Every note on Startin' with Me is as perfectly placed as Owen's artfully mussed hair in the reg'lar joe glamour shot on the front cover. Owen and producer Jimmy Ritchey carefully check off all the country radio clichés: Drinking ballad? Check! Cry for the good Lord's deliverance? You betcha! Leering misogyny disguised as praise for the female of the species? Got yer "Something About a Woman" right here, pal! Naturally, something so perfectly contrived can't help but be at least modestly successful on a commercial level.

10 Legends of the Blues

For over a century, blues is still nourishing pop music of all kinds and producing great records. It's time to take a look back at the classics with ten historic blues musicians.

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.
