    Two-thirds of Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band live in a log cabin off a winding road just a few miles north of Nashville, Indiana. Further up the road is Bean Blossom, home of the Bill Monroe Bluegrass Festival; a mile or two south, John Mellencamp’s recording studio.

    The path from cozy folk venues and Appalachian string band gatherings to rock clubs isn’t necessarily a smooth or direct one, as Nora Jane Struthers can attest. Her reputation as an old-time-inclined storyteller drove her band’s early bookings, but those stages weren’t built to accommodate the alternative rock bite of her revamped group, the Party Line. “There was a super awkward six month period where we were still playing, like, the Unitarian Coffee house with our electric guitar and drum set,” the Virginia-born, New Jersey-bred Nashville transplant recalls amusedly. “We did our…

    Six years ago this month, I lost my best friend. He was 16, well beyond life expectancy for a dog of his size and breed. It still sucked. I’ll probably have another dog someday, but I’m not ready yet. Thankfully, you don’t have to host a dog to help a dog. Today, I’m thrilled to be able to forward $22.77 in Amazon proceeds from stuff you bought in November/December 2014 to Emmylou Harris’ dog rescue, Bonaparte’s Retreat.

Never mind that Linsey was previously Taylor Swift’s labelmate and Blake Shelton’s opening act.

That is until the past five years or so as newer stars arrive, influenced by the music of their life that has often been blended on their mp3 players and streaming playlists, regardless of traditionally-labeled genres. The pictured (above) Sam Hunt is one of the leaders of this new blend of country music with a distinctive sound that sets him apart. “As his upcoming album Montevallo proves, Sam Hunt wasn’t just listening to Diamond Rio…
