THEY’RE RELEASING A NEW 17 SONG HITS COLLECTION.Anyone who is still clueless about what a great singer Ronnie Dunn is need only grab this second greatest-hits package from Brooks & Dunn, a 17-song compilation that skims the commercial high points from the duo’s 1998-2004 period. Dunn, the quintessential balladeer, soars on honky-tonk laments and reminiscences like “Red Dirt Road” and “How Long Gone,” and on full-throated romantic plaints like “That’s What She Gets for Loving Me” and “It’s Getting Better All the Time.” His sidekick, the underrated guitarist, utility singer, and all-around dynamo Kix Brooks, also gets his moment to shine on a marvelous ’60s-style, 18-wheeler ditty called “Independent Trucker,” one of three new cuts included here. –Bob Allen

Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell’s new album, The Traveling Kind, will be released May 12 on Nonesuch Records, with the vinyl due June 2.
The Traveling Kind follows the longtime friends’ first duet album, 2013’s Old Yellow Moon, which won Best Americana Album at the 56th annual Grammy Awards as well as two awards at the 2013 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards Show, for Album of the Year and Duo/Group of the Year. The album also debuted at #4 on the Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
Crowell adds, “Emmy and I wrote six of the eleven songs on The Traveling Kind, which was recorded in a six-day span with our Glory Band, Steuart Smith, and Billy Payne. Joe Henry was at the helm as producer and Justin Neibank did the recording. The experience was pretty much akin to falling off a log.”

Known as The Southern Gentleman, Sonny James was one of the most popular and successful country artists of them all during the decades following WWII, racking up more than 75 hits in a chart career that lasted three decades through to 1983. He scored no less than 23 US country No. 1s, beginning with the landmark success of Young Love, which also topped the US pop chart, and including an extraordinary run of big hits in late ’60s and early ’70s beyond the scope of this collection. He was one of the first country artists to embrace the influence of rock ‘n’ roll, helping to give his work a more contemporary flavour than many of his Nashville peers, and was one of the new breed of country stylist who brought the genre into the modern era. This great value 62-track collection comprises a substantial proportion of the A and B sides of the forty or so singles he released on Capitol, NRC, RCA and Dot during the first decade or so of his career, with at least one side of most releases included, and naturally features all his country and pop chart entries from that era, including, as well as Young Love, the Top 10 country hits That’s Me Without You, For Rent, You’re The Reason I’m In Love, First Date, First Kiss, First Love and Uh-Huh-mm. Best-known as he is for his later work, this provides an enlightening and entertaining scene-setter for his later career, as his style develops from his country roots towards the new sound that would characterise Nashville in subsequent years.

On her new album, My Turn, Tanya Tucker takes classic country songs originally recorded by male country
legends and turns the tables, giving classics by George Jones, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty and Eddy Arnold a powerful spin from a woman’s point of view. One of country music’s greatest stars, few can match the emotional range of Tucker’s smoky vocals.
Working with Grammy Award-winning producer Pete Anderson (Dwight Yoakam, Michelle Shocked, Roy
Orbison, Sara Evans), Tucker completely transformed the delivery and meaning of the songs with her earthy, passionate and unflinching style. From heartbreaking to tough-as-nails, the recordings are powerful as Tucker wrings new, unexpected emotions from these classics.
Guest artists include the Grascals, Jim Lauderdale and bluegrass stars Rhonda and Darrin Vincent, with
producer Anderson playing guitar on every track.
