Sweet Home and Alabama

Thanksgiving is over and now it’s time to decorate trees and take that annual stroll down Michigan Ave to see the beautifully decorated windows and Christmas lights. While admiring the beauty of the lights and decorations – making those lists and checking them twice –  country music lovers have at least two additional things to look forward to in the the new year.

My only wish this year…

After the success of Brad Paisley’s recent single “Old Alabama”, the boys of Alabama recently confirmed a bit a reunion for the new year, something to the tune of 12 concerts in 2012, with the first gig at the upcoming Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

They also discussed the possibility of recording a new studio album. I must say, Paisley’s “Old Alabama” was beautifully done.  While Brad is singing, it is almost impossible to resist the inclination to sing along with him, especially when the members of Alabama join in. It’s such a comfortable tune, the feeling you get, a universal reaction to want more. Something new, but something so comfortable.

The studio album cannot come soon enough.

Speaking of home for the holidays….

Dierks Bentley’s much anticipated new CD “Home” will be released in February.  The title song, released a few weeks ago, is an extremely pretty, patriotic song with such a beautiful melody it is almost soothing. It’s very different from anything Bentley has done before and if the rest of the CD is this excellent, then Home in Feb. 2012 is destined to be a chart topper.

Back to ’tis this season…

While sugar plums are dancing in your head, whether you are hanging garland, getting surprised under mistletoe, lighting a Hanukkah menorah, lighting candles for Kwanzaa or just giving good cheer, keep in mind that in 2012 – for country music – it’s going to be awesome and full of some fantastic, much-anticipated music.

It just keeps getting better and better.
