The crossover hit that launched a million girl-power imitators, Wide Open Spaces puts a fresh, optimist polish on its deep country roots. Opener "Can Love You Better," which struts with dobro twang, and "There’s Your Trouble" owe to the sass of The Judds and Shania Twain but Dixie Chicks' lead vocalist Natalie Maines immediately stands out as one of the most confident voices of her generation. Matched with the backing vocals and strings-playing of sisters Martie and Emily Erwin, it's lightning in a bottle. <br><br>Even before the first verse, the title single evokes wide, open spaces via banjo and fiddle and by the time it hits the staggering harmonies of the chorus, the song absolutely soars. Ballad "Loving Arms" (first made famous by Kris Kristofferson) haunts with steel guitar and an angel's chorus. Drinking song "Tonight the Heartache's on Me" is whiskey woozy, and "Let 'Er Rip" unspools a boogie-woogie straight out of Bakersfield. The album wraps up with a barnburner cover of Bonnie Raitt's "Give It Up or Let Me Go."  It’s all loose in attitude but as technically tight as they come, proving these Chicks are their own women. © Qobuz

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.

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.

10 Legends of the Blues

June 21 marked 20 years since the death of a king of the blues: John Lee Hooker. But the blues didn't follow this giant into the grave. This genre, which has been being recorded for over a century, is still nourishing pop music of all kinds and producing great records (like the latest release from The Black Keys). It's time to take a look back at the classics with ten historic blues musicians.
