Live in Texas: Collin Raye at Billy Bob's

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Written by Elijah Nelms Wednesday, 07 May 2014 20:52

The album simply captures Raye doing a highly professional, high-energy set of his hits. At first it's a little too high-energy, as he really pushes "My Kind of Girl" too hard to get the set off to an energetic start, but soon the music reaches an amiable equilibrium, balancing skillfully between sentimental ballads and friendly honky tonkers. While there's nothing surprising -- Raye isn't suddenly revealed as a hardcore country purist -- it's a smooth and satisfying listen, a good first live effort, and a record that's sure to please longtime fans. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Live In Texas: Waylon Jennings, Live From Austin, TX.

Recorded on April 1, 1989 this performance by Waylon Jennings was no April Fools joke. This was the "new" Waylon, both personally and professionally. This was Waylon's second trip to the ACL stage, but the one that best captures the raw edge and driving urgency that pushed country music way past its Nashville boundaries starting in the mid-1970's. Tune in Thursday, April 24 at 7pm to hear the entire record!

Gulf Coast Cowboy: April 30

Welcome back to the Gulf Coast Cowboy! How many of you have ever been sailing? It's one of the most peaceful experiences you can ever have. If you ever have the chance to sail out away from the coast for a few hours, do it. It's one of my favorite things to do! There's nothing like letting the wind guide you and enjoying some time away from life's troubles and your responsibilities for a little while. Heck, I bet if we all went sailing on a regular basis, everyone would be happier. This weeks episode is dedicated to the power of the wind to take up away from all of our worries. Tune in Wednesday, April 30 at 7pm on KBEC!
