Interview- Kristian Bush

Kristian Bush
By: Thom Jennings


Over the years I have had the pleasure of speaking with many artists, and in the course of my time as a music journalist there have been a few artists that are really special. In simplest terms, I am not just interviewing them; I am somewhat of a “fan boy.”

This interview will always remain at the top of the list. It felt more like a conversation with a fellow music lover and less like a formal interview. That combined with my adoration of Sugarland (which comes through in this interview) made it very special. Continue reading

Garth Brooks
By: Dave Leary

In September, Garth Brooks, joined by wife Trisha Yearwood, began his first tour in 13 years. A new album, Man Against Machine, was released in November. Brooks returned to Buffalo for the first time since 1998 last night and will play five more shows over the weekend. As a longtime fan, I thought I would mark the occasion by giving my lists of Garth’s top 10 singles and top 10 album cuts. It may also be wise to study up the lyrics to assist Brooks as by Sunday he doesn’t expect to have much of his voice left as he stated in his press conference at First Niagara Center Thursday afternoon.
