Spotlight Music of the Month
“Hell or High Water” – Kelcy Hyde
Country music artist “Kelcy Hyde” has been the subject of two articles at The Southland Music Line –
“Keeping Up with Kelcy Hyde: Nashville’s Next New Sensation?” (May 16, 2014) and “The Line Interviews Kelcy Hyde” (November 5, 2014). Her 2014 EP “Your Heart Amazes Me” has led her to continued success as a live performer in Nashville and across the country. Her latest single “Hell or High Water” was officially released on April 21. The recent article “Kelcy Hyde Blows Us Away with Hell or High Water” at Country Music Chat gives further proof of Kelcy’s appeal. We recommend checking out the music of Kelcy Hyde and purchasing her latest single.
Last Month’s Spotlight Music
“Silent Sea” – Christina Christian
“Silent Sea” – Christina Christian
This month we are highlighting the album “Silent Sea” by southern Alabama’s very own Christina Christian. This twelve song collection contains an engaging group of original music. Christina is known around the Deep South for her gift as a songwriter and honest delivery of a song. “Silent Sea” is testament of her earnest devotion to doing what she obviously loves. The album begins with “Around We Go”, a perfect introduction and one of my early favorites. It is followed by “Quirky Little Thing”, a song co-written with Lynn Langham whose songs have been recorded by such artists as Wynonna, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell. Another standout track is the delightful “Keepin’ You Young” accompanied by Nick Biebricher. With the passionate “Call It What You Want”, Christina pulls you in with her heartfelt lyrics paired with a pleasing instrumental accompaniment. The song has that “it factor” and is deserving of radio airplay. Christina Christian, no stranger to songwriting, has given us a well-crafted album of songs to enjoy. We will certainly be hearing from her in the coming years.
The Line would like to recognize long time music supporter Edie Ward as our Music Fan of the Month. Being a resident of L A (Lower Alabama) Edie regularly takes the opportunity to attend the ever-present great music venues in her area such as The Listening Room, Callaghan’s Irish Social Club and Manci’s Antique Club. The Frog Pond at Blue Moon Farm is also a favorite venue of Edie’s. She attended their very first show in 2009 and has been an ardent supporter since. When attending shows with Edie, her appreciation of music is evident to all around her and we look forward to seeing her at more venues in the future.
