New CD Releases For July 18: Los Lonely Boys, Golden Smog, Rodney Atkins
Los Lonely Boys “Sacred”
The Texas rock band returns with the follow-up to its eponymous 2003 debut. That first album has sold more than 2 million copies to date, thanks in large part to the hit roots-rock single “Heaven.”
The family group, which features the Garza brothers Henry (guitar), Jojo (bass) and Ringo (drums), will support the album with a major tour that currently stretches through September and includes some dates opening for Carlos Santana, as well as a Sept. 15 performance at the Austin City Limits music festival.
The first single from “Sacred” is “Diamonds,” which is already getting radio airplay and is streaming at the group’s MySpace site. Fellow Texan Willie Nelson makes a guest appearance on the song “Outlaws.”

Golden Smog “Another Fine Day”
Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and The Jayhawks’ Gary Louris reunite for the fourth release from this all-star Midwestern roots-rock act. Other artists who contribute to the set include fellow Jayhawk Marc Perlman and Soul Asylum guitarist Dan Murphy. The album notably includes a cover of
The Kinks’ “Strangers.”

Rodney Atkins “If You’re Going Through Hell”
The Tennessee-born country star is back with his third album and his first since 2003’s “Honesty.” The first single from the disc is “If You’re Going Through Hell (Before The Devil Even Knows),” which has already climbed into the Top 10 on the Billboard country singles chart. The video for the song is also in rotation at country music channels such as CMT. Atkins is best known for the title track to “Honesty,” which was a Top 5 hit for the singer.

Bruce Cockburn “Life Short Call Now”
The Canadian singer/songwriter/guitarist has been very prolific over the years. “Life Short Call Now” is the 29th album in Cockburn’s 37-year career. It follows his first all-instrumental affair, 2005’s “Speechless.” Singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco makes a guest appearance on the song “See You Tomorrow.”

Billy Ray Cyrus “Wanna Be Your Joe”
Billy Ray Cyrus is back to try to overcome the stigma of his “Achy Breaky Heart” days and make another go at it in the country world. The artist has recruited some very special friends to help him in that endeavor. None other than George Jones and Loretta Lynn–two of country music’s true immortals–add vocals to the song “Country Music Has the Blues.”

The first-ever compilation from these San Francisco Bay Area rockers includes such fan favorites as “Losing a Whole Year,” “How’s It Going To Be,” “Jumper,” “Graduate” and, of course, “Semi-Charmed Life,” which remains the band’s best-known hit.
