On his new album, the 11th for MCA, Next Big Thing, Vince Gillreturns to the music he loves and cut his teeth on. Highlights include the barrelhouse rock & roll of the tongue-in-cheek first single, "Next Big Thing," Gill's playful self-critique at the thirst for pop stardom. Other standouts include the autobiographical talking blues of "This Old Guitar And Me," the Beatles/Beach Boys-like harmonies of "Don't Let Her Get Away," the square-dance Cajun reel of "Old Time Fiddle" and the Mexicali guitars on the elegiac "We Had It All." Not to mention a pair of understated ballads with strings in the beautiful "Someday" and the stately "These Broken Hearts." Gill, who produced himself for the first time, put together a stellar line-up of musicians, then worked them into a live band in the studio. The band included such players as NRBQ guitarist Al Anderson, drummer Chad Cromwell, fiddle player Stuart Duncan, steel guitar player John Hughey, guitarists Mac McAnallyand Dean Parks, piano-player Pete Wasner, bassist Willie Weeks, slide guitarist Tom Britt, harmonica/accordion player Jim Hokeand saxophonists Jim Hornand Kirk Whalam. Among the vocalists who guest on the record are wife Amy Grant("In These Last Few Days"), Emmylou Harris("Young Man's Town"), LeAnn Womack("Two Hearts"), Bekka Bramlett("From Where I Stand"), Dawn Sears("Without You"), Michael McDonald("These Broken Hearts") and Leslie Satcher("Old Time Fiddle").

When it came time to put together her debut holiday album, multi-platinum artist Jo Dee Messina knew exactly who she wanted sitting beside her at the control board: famed producer Brent Maher. Messina has long considered the man responsible for holiday albums by Kenny Rogers, The Judds and Kathy Mattea (for which he won a Grammy) to be the "Father Christmas" of record producers.. The end result is the co-produced A Joyful Noise. Messina put a great deal of thought into her first holiday collection knowing that above all else, she wanted the end result to be her personal holiday sentiments, delivered simply and honestly. Her hope was that the listener felt she was in their own home, singing directly to them. Listeners will be pleasantly surprised to find traces of her personality -- like Messina laughing during "Let It Snow" -- left on the tracks.And when it came time to enlist the help of a few of her favorite singers Messina knew she wanted Vince Gill and Kenny Rogers as her guests. The decision to use Rogers on "What Child Is This" was an easy one, "Kenny has always been Mr. Christmas to me," she commented. "We've had a mutual respect for each other for some time and have talked about doing something together. I've been a fan of his holiday tour since seeing it in New York a few years back," Messina continued.While she admits to adoring Vince Gill both as a singer and as a person, Messina didn't simply assume he'd agree to be a part of her album. "I was nervous about having Brent ask him," she acknowledges. Since adding his vocals to "Silver Bells," Messina simply says, "I'm honored that he is a part of my first holiday album."The New England native leaned towards the classics on A Joyful Noise,songs that were a part of her childhood holiday celebrations. In addition to "What Child Is This" and "Silver Bells," listeners will be treated to: "O Holy Night," "I'll Be Home For Christmas," "Winter Wonderland," "The Christmas Song," "Sleigh Ride," "Let It Snow," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," and "Silent Night."Two original tracks are also included: "Keep The Faith," written by Messina, Mike Reid and Maher and "A Joyful Noise," written by Tia Sillers and Mark Selby.
GOLDEN ROAD, the second solo album from Keith Urban, symbolizes the life and musical journey that has taken him from the Australian farm town of Caboolture to the top of the country music charts. It's a sojourn that has spanned nearly 9,000 miles (including the nerve-racking 10-yard trek across the famed Opry stage to receive the CMA's Horizon Award) and more than a decade of writing, picking, living, loving and growing. " Golden Roadis more of a state of mind than a place for me," Urban says. This album offers here to fore-untapped insights into the mind and soul of Urban, a somewhat complicated, yet optimistic and light-hearted man in his observations about himself and others. Urban reveals more of himself on this project than on any recording he's ever done. "Hopefully it covers the gamut of my personality, from thinking to completely non-thinking, to being in love, joyous love, love for yourself, love for a higher power and gratitude," says Urban, who wrote or co-wrote 8 of the album's 12 songs. "Some of these songs are about things that I wish I could be or I wish I could do; they are not necessarily things that I am. They are idealistic, but that's a good start. "A song like 'You're Not Alone Tonight' tells you everything I think about my spirituality. 'Song For Dad' tells you how I feel about my father. The songs like 'You Won' and 'You're Not My God' tell you how I feel about addiction and how it can really derail you. If there's a positive tone to this record, it's because I feel so grateful to still be on my journey. I haven't found what I'm looking for, but I feel really blessed to continue down the path to discovery."
