Ninebullets.net’s Official Stance Regarding Luke Bryan’s Comments:

“I’m not an outlaw country singer. I don’t do cocaine and run around. So I’m not going to sing outlaw country…” ~Luke Bryan Much like a lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinions of sheep we, as a country music fans, do not concern ourselves with the opinions of Luke Bryan. We’ll leave that to […]

Whitey Morgan & The 78’s – Sonic Ranch – 2015

I’ve had the pleasure of writing about Whitey Morgan since 2008 when he was just a wet behind the ears unsigned artist out of Flint, Michigan. Since then he has been picked up by Bloodshot Records who rereleased his debut album, Honky Tonks and Cheap Hotels, as well as it’s self-titled follow-up. Well, Bloodshot might […]

Stream Jason Isbell’s new album, Something More Than Free:

How is Jason gonna follow up the masterpiece that is Southeastern is a question you no longer have to ask thanks to NPR’s “First Listen.” Thoughts? Does it measure up to Southeastern? Better?

Marching Suns – Marching Suns – 2015

Dark Folk? Heavy Folk? Stoner Folk? Sludge Folk? I’m not entirely sure how to define the Marching Suns but I do know it falls somewhere in the spectrum of the terms above. Marching Suns are the brain child of 9b fave Scott McDougall, Ezra Meredith of Hearts Of Oak and Mark Folkrod of The Dead […]

Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard – Django and Jimmie – 2015

Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard – Django and Jimmie – 2015

Willie Nelson is a lot like Lil John for me in the sense that I prefer him when he appears on other people’s albums rather than listening to his albums. Merle Haggard on the other hand, I could listen to Merle on repeat forever. Django & Jimmie marks the sixth time these two have collaborated […]

Jason Isbell talks about his Sad Bastardness….

Jason Isbell talks about his Sad Bastardness….

One of my favorite pastimes is getting drunk at home alone while listening to Jason Isbell albums. Another one of my favorite past times is doing that exact same thing with other people and talking with them about the songs and their meanings. I was so happy to see this post show up yesterday as […]

Premiere – Kent Goolsby & The Gold Standard – How Low Does Your Fruit Hang

Premiere – Kent Goolsby & The Gold Standard – How Low Does Your Fruit Hang

Unlike Captain’s Dead if you’d have told me 4 years ago when Kent Goolsby played my birthday party with his, now defunct, band The Only Sons I would have been surprised. That said, since disbanding with The Only Sons I have watched Kent’s music change and mature into something that is equal parts in the […]

Opinion – 2 Pop Country Songs Worth Talking About

Opinion – 2 Pop Country Songs Worth Talking About

No genre on earth is completely devoid of discussion worth material. I also don’t believe that there is no genre that is completely without merit. Anyone who suggests otherwise is most likely an asshole. Up until a few months ago I was pretty ignorant to the pop country genre but living in Nashville now makes […]
