I know I may lose my membership in the hipster club here, but the new albums by The Dixie Chicks and Kelly Willis are pretty excellent. I'm normally not a fan of what passes for country these days on the radio, but these discs both seem to be made without regard for current country or pop trend, and seem all the more original for it. They definately aren't Faith Hill corny or Martina McBride faux-earnest, but sound like records made by people who have record collections that reach beyond Nashville and Celine Dion territory. However, both records are hooky enough that pop programmers would be nuts not to give them a shot on hit radio. Anyone else hear this stuff yet?
