Shane Barnhill 6 StarsShane Barnhill • Country Lovin’
www.shanebarnillmusic.com

Shane Barnhill’s music shines on his CD, Country Lovin’. With a couple self-penned tunes including “Take Away” plus songs like “It Don’t Hurt To Ask” by masterful songwriter, Dean Dillon, Shane delivers a solid project from start to finish. This positively country project could easily be described as Texas Redneck - which is something we don’t hear enough of these days!
 
 
Chris Rogers 6 StarsChris Rogers • Rollin’ Wheel
www.chrisrogersmusic.com

Chris Rogers’ 5-song release entitled Rollin’ Wheel is a sneak peek into the potential of this rising star. He has a powerful traditional sound edged with a slightly contemporary feel. There’s plenty of emotion in each vocal delivery from “All Over The Map” to “Rollin’ Wheel,” a song he co-wrote with Jay Brunswick and Josh Towne. Looking forward to hearing more from this Georgia native.
 
 
Abbey Hirvela 5 StarsAbbey Hirvela • The Start
www.abbeyhirvelamusic.com

Abbey Hirvela’s CD, is aptly titled, The Start. This debut 7-song EP features a contemporary country sound, opening with the uptempo “Reason To Run” and also includes the Sara Evans’ song “Needle And Thread,” the only song on the project that Abbey didn’t have a hand in writing. Her vocals show emotion beyond her years and experience. All in all, a strong career launch.
 
 
John and Judy Rodman 5 StarsJohn & Judy Rodman • Here We Are
www.johnandjudyrodman.com

Singer/songwriter Judy Rodman joins her husband, drummer/songwriter, John Rodman on this collection of self-penned tunes. With credits and accolades already bestowed on both, it’s no surprise that this CD has plenty of appealing material. The uptempo opener, “Somethin’ Like That” is one of best with the heartfelt “Here We Are” coming in at a close second. It’s great to see Judy back in the recording studio!
