Rob Crosby


Rob is another man who's loaded with talent when it comes to creating as well as delivering music. His song, "Good Ain't Good Enough" is a heartbreaking ballad... however, the title also sums up what has happened in country music over the past decade....and Rob is more than good enough!

George Ducas

George Ducas

George Ducas has at least managed to be heard... but not enough. His first album "George Ducas" (1994) made the charts with the cuts, "Kisses Don't Lie" and "Lipstick Promises"......then nothing. I haven't heard his music played (except on my stereo) since. His second album "Where I Stand" (1996..... yea... and it has just recently hit the stores) has had great reviews and they are well deserved.... have you heard it on the radio yet? Me neither!

As you can obviously tell from reading the above, it was written quite a long time ago, but I am still a fan of George Ducas. I was fortunate enough to find another fan/friend of his who is also a reviewer in Nashville. Tamara has granted me permission to use the review she did of George's first album. I love it, it's brief and to the point.

Reviewer:   American Roots "American Roots Publishing" (Nashville, TN United States)
Although George had hits with two of the tracks from this CD, "Teardrops" and "Lipstick Promises," the album never got the attention it deserved due to some breakdowns at his record label. Every song on this CD is a winner and George truly showcases his gift for writing great melodies and lyrics. If you like guitar-driven music, you'll love this record. Favorite cuts are "Lipstick Promises," "My World Stopped Turning," "Hello Cruel World," and "Kisses Don't Lie." George went on to write songs for the Dixie Chicks, Gary Allan, Garth Brooks and Radney Foster.

Michael White

Michael White

"Familiar Ground" (1992) is a beautiful album. I actually bought it by accident. OK...so I'm a blonde.... but this time it paid off! Michael (as many of my favorite male singers) has that deep soulful voice that I just can't resist. If you love real country music, deep and soulful, you'll love Michael White!

Billy Yates

BillyYates.jpg (9767 bytes)It's impossible to understand how Sony/Columbia Records had Billy Yates under contract for THREE years and did nothing to promote his talent as a singer or a songwriter. Billy has written some of the best country songs, for many of the best country artists such as George Jones ("I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair"), Ricky Van Shelton ("A Bridge I Didn't Burn"), and many, many more.

A fan wrote to me about Billy;
"Billy had a deal at the now defunct Almo Sounds label (around '97) with a minor hit called "Flowers" which could have really gone far if not for some bad planning. He was tied up with Sony/Columbia for 3 years in a record deal that was going nowhere. He's now an independent & has a new album entitled, "If I Could Go Back" with a single called, "Too Country & Proud of It". This boy is the REAL DEAL for anyone that loves good traditional country music."

I couldn't have said it better myself!
