The follow-up to 2013's antebellum audio postcard This Side of Jordan, Such Jubilee, the fourth studio long-player from Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz, finds the North Carolina duo tilling familiar ground, offering up another timeless-sounding set of unapologetically homespun American Roots music built around the age-old foundation of heartfelt lyrics, sweet harmonies, and gentle strumming and picking. The melodious and affable This Side of Jordan connected (and rightly so) with enough people to ensure that Mandolin Orange would be engaging with relatively full houses while on tour in support of the album, and most of the ten tracks on Such Jubilee reflect the often stark contrast between life on the road and the comforts of home. Recorded live in the studio (face to face), stand-out cuts like the warm and wistful opener "Old Ties & Companions," the equally aching and cordial "Little Words," and the evocative Shenandoah-inspired "Jump Mountain Blues" are as immediate sounding as they are adamantly nostalgic. Even when the pair tackle more contemporary themes, which they do with great success on the measured but quietly devastating ballad "Blue Ruin," which wrestles with the lack of gun reform in the aftermath of the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the results are no less coated in a patina of the purest sepia. Marlin and Frantz craft songs with one foot in the now and the other in the hereafter, and while their particular blend of neo-Appalachian folk and road-weary Americana is hardly a revelation, it's certainly of a quality that deserves the pricing of a fine vintage.

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.

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.

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.
