New Releases (April 19): Ralph Stanley, Robyn Ludwick & Zoe Muth; Sunny Sweeney For Free; Hayes Carll & Amanda Shires On Daytrotter
- Sunny Sweeney‘s “Staying’s Worse Than Leaving” is the iTunes Free Single of the Week. (Check out Blake Boldt’s review here on The 9513)
- Over at Country California, CM listed his favorite tracks from albums that were for the most part released in March. I’ll get a jump on him and say I hope Zoe Muth‘s “If I Can’t Trust You With A Quarter (How Can I Trust You With My Heart)” makes his April list.

- Country California: Quotable Country – 04/17/11 Edition
- Daytrotter posted a couple of cool sessions form Amanda Shires (can’t go wrong with the “Train” song) and Hayes Carll.
- Country Universe’s Leeann Ward reviewed the self-titled debut from Craig Campbell favorably:
The combination of [Keith] Stegall’s spot on arrangements, Campbell’s commanding baritone, and the song’s sing-able melodies provides a very fulfilling sonic experience for the listener who longs to hear unapologetic country music in the mainstream again. In fact, the brightest spot on the album is a severe, though sincere, indictment on the current state of country music that simply concludes, “If you gotta tell me how country you are, you prob’ly ain’t.”
The Electric Earmuff posted a few videos from a recent Justin Townes Earle concert at The Basement in Nashville, including performances of “Ain’t Glad I’m Leavin’,” “Ain’t Waitin’,” and “I Don’t Care.” (via Nashville Cream)
