Radney Foster: This World We Live In

Like both Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle, Foster's music is stripped down with a southern twang that more tightly ties it to the country camp than country-rock bands like The Eagles or alt.country poster boy Ryan Adams.

Bruce Springsteen: Devils & Dust

It is, by turns, a country record, a folk record and even a bit of a rock record. It is thick with atmosphere, awash in violence and a shadowy mythology redolent of the Old West.

Ray Charles: An American Genius

Ray Charles took nothing from no one, staking his claim to the world, thriving despite his blindness to become one of a handful of truly legendary and groundbreaking artists in the history of music. Rest in peace, Brother Ray.
