Stronger Than the Truth -- the 33rd studio album from Reba McEntire and the first of secular material since 2015's Love Somebody -- kicks off with "Swing All Night Long with You," a joyous slice of western swing that functions as a manifesto of sorts: unlike the gleaming Love Somebody, Stronger Than the Truth is a pure, unadorned country album. McEntire delivers on this promise, albeit in her own fashion. While she returns to this hardcore sound on occasion throughout the record -- witness the skipping "No U in Oklahoma," so nimble it could've been part of the Texas Playboys' repertoire -- McEntire sticks to the kind of country that made her a star back in the '80s, emphasizing nuanced ballads and well-rendered narratives. Tempos rarely quicken on Stronger Than the Truth -- apart from the two western swing numbers, there's the gilded confidence of "Storm in a Shot Glass," but not much more than that -- but the album doesn't feel soft or meandering. Thanks to the co-production of Buddy Cannon -- a Nashville stalwart who regularly recorded with Willie Nelson and Kenny Chesney in the 2010s -- the album feels flinty even when it's tender, a combination that's long been a signature of McEntire's. She channels this empathetic toughness into a series of songs that plays like short stories -- there are tales of dashed dreams, managed expectations, and earned love, along with many other manners of adult concerns -- and that deft, subtle blend of music and message gives Stronger Than the Truth a lasting emotional resonance.

Merle Haggard, the bad boy of country music

Alcohol, prison, drugs and poverty. Merle Haggard, who experienced all four, spent his life singing about America’s outcasts and dropouts. Creator of the Bakersfield sound, he stripped country music down to make its message even more striking.

The Chicks in 10 Songs

One of the most polarizing bands around, the Dixie Chicks—as of June 2020, simply The Chicks—have never toed the line so many women in country music were once expected to.

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.
