One of the big indie-folk success stories of recent years is The Head and The Heart. Signed to Sub Pop Records (yes, the label of Nirvana fame), the six musicians have come a long way from selling their CDs in handmade sleeves. They closed out the second week of Live on the Green, playing to Read More

The immensely popular summer concert series Live in the Green went into week two, after needing to make adjustments to the site map when too many people joined the party for the kick-off event.

Ray Lamontagne’s ethereal voice could never disappoint. Even if you’re not familiar with his latest album, Supernova, his performance will take your breath away. This is fact. The proof ? Last week I had the privilege of attending his concert at The Orpheum in Memphis, Tennessee. The majority of this show focuses on Supernova, but Read More

Live Review: Twin Forks – 1884 Lounge – Memphis, TN

3 years ago Brittany Fisher Comments Off on Live Review: Twin Forks – 1884 Lounge – Memphis, TN
When I was in high school, Dashboard Confessional was the greatest thing since sliced bread. Everyone who was anyone had Dashboard lyrics gracing their AOL Instant Messenger profile or “away” message. Some of the more extreme fans took it to the next level by having their lyrics tattooed someplace. Thankfully, I didn’t go that far. Read More

3 years ago Brittany Fisher Comments Off on Live Review: Tim McGraw – Verizon Wireless Amphitheater – St. Louis, MO
I remember being a nine-year-old girl, riding around in the front seat of my uncle’s car after he picked me up from school, as he did most days. He always had the radio turned up and tuned in to our local country station. We’d usually listen to Brooks & Dunn, Deana Carter, or LeAnn Rimes. Read More

3 years ago Brittany Fisher Comments Off on Impressions from My Very First Keith Urban Show
Let me preface this short-but-sweet review by saying that only celebrities or artists of a certain stature earn the honor of inserting the word “freaking” between their first and last name. You know, Michael-freaking-Jackson, Tom-freaking-Hanks or Britney-freaking-Spears. You get the idea. Well, this guy has definitely earned that name addition. When Keith Urban stepped out Read More

Brett Eldredge added some soul to the heat at Delta Country Jam 2014 last Saturday, May 24, in Southaven, MS. Bouncing onto the stage after an energetic instrumental intro readied the crowd, he worked his way through songs from his debut album, Bring You Back. ‘On and On,’ and ‘Tell Me Where to Park,’ were Read More
