Spring 2018

Rodney Crowell

In 1988, Rodney Crowell was already known as a talented sideman and an impressive songwriter. but that same year, he also released Diamonds and Dirt, an album that minted Crowell as a solo star, spawning five consecutive No. 1 singles and earning Gold certification from the RIAA. Many artists would be proud of this commercial breakthrough, but Crowell, 66, dismisses it on "I Don't Care Anymore," the manifesto that sits at the center of his bracingly reflective new album, Close Ties. Geoffrey Himes profiles the legendary artist and Third Cost Music Festival headliner."

Old-Fashioned Girl

Kat Edmonson is already well established as an old soul; she'd have that reputation even without her recent contribution to Café Society, the Woody Allen romantic comedy set in the 1930s. Her previous three albums all exude a twinkly throwback charm, whether in jazz-cabaret or folksy indie-pop mode. But as a socially observant singer-songwriter in a social media age, she pines for a respite from pop-up ads and notifications on her new release, Old Fashioned Gal.

The Rise of Khalid

Raised in a military family, Khalid lived in Germany and upstate New York before settling in El Paso. While still a teenager, he began making music, incorporating wide-ranging influences in the songs he posted online, including his bittersweet breakout single, "Location." Another single, "Hopeless," preceded Khalid's debut album, American Teen, which arrived in March 2017 and became an unexpected smash. We chronicle Khalid's rise to stardom.
