Blanco Brown managed to ride the "Old Town Road" wave right to the top of the charts when his effervescent "The Git Up" became a viral sensation in the summer of 2019. Striking while the iron was hot, Brown delivered the full-length debut Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs in October, just a few months after "The Git Up" made the leap from TikTok to the Billboard charts. Such a quick turnaround is evident in the threadbare nature of the album. Lasting a shade over a half-hour, Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs nevertheless feels sluggish, due in part to the rubbery bass and electronic futzing of his vocals (i.e., all the elements that make this seem like the "trailer trap" fusion Brown purports it to be. While this means that Honeysuckle sounds more like modern hip-hop than Southern-friend hick-hop, it does give the album a heavy, dour blandness that doesn't sit well with Brown's decision to signify his country roots by ratcheting up the sentimentality. This blend of mawkishness and dank beats is pretty much the opposite of what "The Git Up" promised. The fact that Brown did hit the bullseye once just makes Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs seem like even more of a humorless slog than it actually is.

Johnny Cash

In your panoramas...
Johnny Cash Behind Bars

Two legendary live albums released at the end of the sixties gave Johnny Cash’s career a huge boost and turned him into an international star. They were two records were unlike any others: they were recorded in prison. But how did the Man in Black find himself in such an unusual concert hall?

Outlaw Country: Nashville Uprising

In the early 1970’s, a group of musicians from Nashville radically challenged the city’s musical tradition, its codes, its smooth productions and its clichés. With Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and a few other long-haired rebels who were deeply influenced by rock and roll, this new trend defied country music’s conservatism.

Americana, America Through its Roots

The title may sound like a nebulous marketing ploy, and yet for about twenty years, Americana had been summarizing this blend of rock, country, blues and rhythm ‘n’ blues. And like in every big family, you’ll find almost every type of person: the rebellious daughter, the cultivated uncle, the agitated father, the driven cousin, etc.
