Arriving swiftly on the heels of his 2019 debut Different 'Round Here, the 2020 EP If It Wasn't for Trucks finds Riley Green keeping things largely the same, singing a bunch of bright, chipper tunes indebted to how country used to sound back in the '90s. Green acknowledges he may be a little "Behind the Times" with the EP's closing ballad and how he invites Alabama's Randy Owen to sing the other ballad, "Better Than Me." It's a good way to excuse a collection of songs so steeped in country traditions of boots, jeans, and trucks that it verges on the hackneyed. Green is an amiable enough vocalist that these gilded tunes go down easy but the memory that lingers is how he's a singer who could never find a cliche he didn't want to embrace.

Country's Female Iconoclasts in 10 Songs

In March 2021, Loretta Lynn released her 50th solo studio album, Still Woman Enough. A god-fearing mother of six, she broke boundaries in the 1970s by singing about what women really thought—even if they weren't comfortable enough to say it in public. In honor of Lynn's 90th birthday and the important conversations she started, here is a look at 10 songs by country music's female iconoclasts who also refuse to put up with the status quo.

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.
