Gulf Coast Cowboy: January 21st

Welcome back to the Gulf Coast Cowboy! This week we're dedicating our show to the songs that could get us DJs in trouble! Have you ever heard a line in a song that made you do a double take and question what it was that you just heard? These songs were written as tongue twisters and to have double meanings, so you'll need to pay close attention to make sure you hear everything. Tune in to KBEC on Wednesday, January 21st, at 7pm for your weekly dose of the ocean!

Live in Texas: Collin Raye at Billy Bob's

The album simply captures Raye doing a highly professional, high-energy set of his hits. At first it's a little too high-energy, as he really pushes "My Kind of Girl" too hard to get the set off to an energetic start, but soon the music reaches an amiable equilibrium, balancing skillfully between sentimental ballads and friendly honky tonkers. While there's nothing surprising -- Raye isn't suddenly revealed as a hardcore country purist -- it's a smooth and satisfying listen, a good first live effort, and a record that's sure to please longtime fans. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
