CD: RODNEY MORSS - Almost Home

RODNEY MORSS

I Wish I Could Tell You - What Good Is Goodbye - Almost Home - Keep On Livin' - If You Never Tell Me Why - Headed Home, Almost There - All Hell Broke Loose - Same Old Frame Of Mind - It Might As Well Be Me - Born In America
 
There's something about Southern Gospel I really like.  Actually Rodney Morss's album might not even be labeled Southern Gospel, he lives in Galesburg, Illinois.  More accurately this CD is a tremendous testimony to Jesus Christ, our Savior.  Rodney has no problem stating what he believes, and it's up-tempo, its a little bit rock and roll, it's a whole lot sincere.  I really really like gospel music that comes from a sincere heart.  I've heard some that is simply a means to make money, and it doesn't sit well with me.  Rodney Morss on the other hand, is a 'Gospel' singer.  He admits he doesn't have all the answers, but he's certainly willing to try to find them which he so adequately tells us in the very first song. This is a fast moving and tremendously moving testimony to Christ.  The selection of songs is also very important to Rodney.  He picks songs he not only can sing well, he picks songs that he believes in, very much so.  His past is similar to many young people who have picked up the Cross of Christ.  Rodney was one of those into drugs, liquor, hard living, hard not living, and finally found his way out of it all on a hospital bed when he was visited by Jesus Christ.  Rodney has a very very good voice, a very very good voice for Jesus.  In today's world where Islamic Terrorists believe their only way to heaven is by the destruction of Christians, don't you sometimes move aside the hate that comes upon us, and feel incredible sorrow for anyone who would believe that kind of doctrine.  That's what Rodney Morss is really all about.  Getting the message out about the eternal peace and love of Jesus Christ.  Rodney establishes his ministry in one short paragraph.  "We seek to improve the well being of those around us.  We actively serve through music the Message of Hope... Mercy.... and Deliverance to those who will listen and hear the voice of the Savior."  One of my favorite musicians, Glen Duncan is on this project playing fiddle, banjo, and mandolin.  Scott Sanders on steel, Duncan Mullins on bass, Kelly Back on guitar, Ricky Free on drums, and Jonathan Brown on keyboard.  I hear an occasional reference in the guitar picking that is very reminiscent of Jerry Reed.  Super good album, just right for those who like their Gospel music a little country, a little rock, a little Southern style, a little traditional, this is it.  We'll be forwarding it to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their perusal, I'm thinking they'll like it too.

CD: PATSY & THE COUNTRY CLASSICS - Living the Dream

PATSY & THE COUNTRY CLASSICS

What an exciting experience to hear a new album from one of the best 'real' traditional country music groups going right now in America.  Patsy Godley is an amazing performer, a singer of country music that comes right to the door step of the famous Patsy Cline.  Matter of fact, one of my favorite songs on this new CD is "A Bottle of Wine and Patsy Cline."  It is so apparent today that country music radio and their charts have abandoned what country music really is.  What's fortunate for us is this band and lead vocalist from Virginia who are keeping it not only alive, but providing the 'real deal' for anyone who ever listened to or liked 'real' country music.  Patsy and the Country Classics took the Rural Roots Music Commission's "Traditional Country CD of the Year" in 2014, and very deservedly so.  Their appearance at the country music festival in Fremont, Nebraska, at the Christensen Field House, to accept the award was a phenomenal experience for every country music fan in attendance at that occasion.  We have never received so much 'positive' reaction to a country group in the 40 years we've been doing traditional and classic country music events.  Patsy Godley is the centerpiece of this group, her remarkable voice and stage presence is that of a superstar.  However she shares everything with her band.  They get tremendous respect from her, and she also shares her CD projects with other members of the band who are also great country singers., as well as players, including her husband Callis who is a super singer.  That's what makes this woman and the band, so professional, and so likeable.  And, her band is super.  They are all tremendously good players, and when we listen to them, we can tell they enjoy performing together.  The same musicians that travels with Patsy, are the same musicians that back her in the recording studio, and that too is another incredible 'positive' for this group.  Bobby Edenton is the steel player, and he sort of glues the music together so that it stays country.  He's also a very good vocalist.  Billy Rupprecht is the keyboardist, and adds the 'just right' keyboard sound when it sounds best, and also lays good background chording throughout, a tremendous musician.  Donald Hockaday is the bass player and bass singer on the harmony parts.  Michael Hockaday is the drummer that also stands out as a tremendously good lead singer on this album.  Jeff Wadford is on lead guitar, and his exciting electric sound goes all the way back to Ernest Tubb, with the same exciting riffs and runs we've heard through the years in country music, but not overdone.  A total experience to be sure.  Patsy just won the Ms. Senior America title in 2014, with beauty, poise, and without a doubt talent. She sang a song at that competition that was pure and simple and excellent country.  Patsy Godley  and the Country Classics is a winner, no matter how you look at it.  Off this one goes for the 2015 Rural Roots Music Awards.  Not sure if the group can make the trip all the way back to Nebraska, but I'm pretty sure they'll be the first ones asked.

Mary Sarah Building Bridges

How many - if any - 19 year olds can say that they've not only sung but also recorded songs with Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, Vince Gill, Tanya Tucker, Willie Nelson and other mega country music stars? Only Mary Sarah.

Mary Sarah's  latest album includes the superstars above and then some and they are not singing just any songs, but the celebreties own superhits like "Go Rest High On That Mountain", "Jolene", "Texas (When I Die)", "The Fighting Side Of Me" and so the list goes on.

The young star in the making is living in Texas, but it was because of her constant and growing presence on social media she got recognition. The Oak Ridge Boys member Joe Bonsall heard her sing and tweeted her an invitation to attend a show. Well there, the Oak Ridge Boys invited her to sing and the race was on.
 
With the album, named "Bridges", the vision is to connect the past with the present.  It will be interesting to see where she will go next.
