ty herndon Journey on (FUNL Music) FOR FANS OF: Mark Chesnutt, Clay Walker QQQQ Ty Herndon generated the biggest of waves in country music with his mega-hit “What Mattered Most,” but his sweet, smooth vocal delivery and lazy acoustics keep the feeling warm on inspirational tunes like “Whatever you need” and the title track. Journey On offers safe, metered country that borders on AC and keeps Herndon in his comfort zone. - Matt Conner WE LIKE: “Journey On” Jonny lang live At the Ryman (Concord) FOR FANS OF: Joe Satriani, Phil Keaggy, Kenny Wayne Shepherd QQQ After a four year break in between albums, Jonny Lang turns in his first ever live Cd, which was recorded in 2008 during a tour behind the gospel/blues barnburner Turn Around. Though he may have shifted towards an inspirational lyrical tone, his guitar playing is just as fierce as ever throughout this career spanning set, no matter if the tone is hushed or husky. Even though he nails every note, a recording just doesn’t do the live experience justice, skipping all of those painstaking facial expressions and visual playfulness of full band jam sessions. - Andy Argyrakis WE LIKE: “a Quitter Never Wins” Crossover revieWs All release dates and album titles are subject to change.
