Kacey Musgraves hates the genre column on iTunes. It's the label to end all labels.
Music fans who turned out to BMI's annual pre-Grammy Awards "How I Wrote That Song" discussion got a little more than they expected thanks to Snoop Dogg _ a contact high.
Tom T. Hall is a bit of a loner, so he found the red carpet at the BMI Country Awards a little overwhelming Tuesday night.
Sara Evans says she's never one to make an autobiographical album. Yet you can't blame listeners for reading between the lines on her latest single, "A Little Bit Stronger."
"I can hear her doing a record that's super traditional country but it's sounding legitimately honest," Laird said. "That's the kind of background she has. But she's got pop melodies in her. It's so diverse. This record is just barely scratching the surface. I just can't wait to see how she continues to grow and how she'll evolve artistically."
"Now I feel like more than ever you see these influences crossing genres," Laird said.
