Why Merle Haggard Wrote ‘America First,’ the Song Suddenly Getting a Revival as JD Vance’s Campaign Theme

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic Country legend Merle Haggard has been brought into the national spotlight again, thanks to vice presidential candidate JD Vance repeatedly using one of the late singer’s anthems as his walk-up music during the Republican convention this week. It’s not one of Haggard’s better-known classic songs the VP pick has adopted, but a later composition that was released in 2005 and didn’t really get a lot of subsequent pickup until now: “America First.” The Haggard tune played on a loop several times as Vance made his way through the convention floor Monday night, then appeared again Wednesday as walk-up music as the Ohio senator took the stage to deliver his speech.

How Dead & Company Got Their Sphere Splendor: Treatment Studio Head on Creating Spectacular Visuals for the Band’s Vegas Residency

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic If you like what you see when you check into Las Vegas’ Sphere for the residency by Dead & Company — and most attendees have come away raving, Deadheads and newbies alike — you can credit much of that to the efforts of Treatment Studio, the creative agency charged with executing the visuals for the venue’s 160,000- square-foot wrap-around screen for the three-month run. Treatment’s Sam Pattinson is the show’s executive producer but, above and beyond that, shares creative director credit with Dead & Company band member John Mayer, after a decade’s worth of collaborations with Mayer on the singer-guitarist’s solo tours.

Ingrid Andress Says ‘I Was Drunk’ During Home Run Derby National Anthem Performance, Is Checking Into Rehab

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic Country star Ingrid Andress has made a startling revelation on her social accounts, admitting that she was intoxicated while singing the National Anthem before baseball’s annual Home Run Derby on Monday night, and saying she is planning to check into a rehab facility in the wake of the tumult over her disastrous performance. “I’m not gonna bullshit y’all, I was drunk last night,” she wrote on Facebook, Instagram and X (formerly Twitter). “I’m checking myself into a facility today to get the help I need.

Sean Ono Lennon on Celebrating John Lennon’s Underrated ‘Mind Games’ With New Mixes and Deluxe Editions: ‘I Wanted to Represent It in a Way That Gave It a Second Chance’

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic When Sean Ono Lennon — born to John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1975 — was being exposed to his father’s solo canon as a young person, he was hearing it all at once, not sequentially. So he was hearing 1973’s “Mind Games” as one fine album among many, with no need to learn that it was actually an underdog in his dad’s catalog.

Megan Moroney Proves She’s a Country Music Keeper With Her Candid and Accomplished Second Record, ‘Am I Okay?’: Album Review

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic That “Tennessee Orange” gal is in the black, as far as her country music currency goes. Megan Moroney‘s second album proves that she’s a country keeper, if there was any concern — and there shouldn’t have been — that her 2023 debut album, “Lucky,” was a fluke. Coming just 14 months after that record’s arrival, “Am I Okay?” is more than just all right: It establishes that she’s one of traditional-leaning country’s best and brightest new standard-bearers, upholding the most essential of the old values in a broadly beguiling new package.

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic Taylor Swift‘s streak at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with “The Tortured Poets Department” continues unabated, as the album fended off a strong challenge from a new Zach Bryan release to spend its 12th consecutive week atop that chart, breaking or tying a couple of records in the process.

Dave Loggins, Singer Known for ’70s Smash ‘Please Come to Boston,’ and Composer of Golf’s Masters Theme, Dies at 76

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic Dave Loggins, a singer-songwriter who had a memorable chart-topper with “Please Come to Boston” in 1974, died Wednesday at Alive Hospice in Nashville. He was 76; no cause of death was given. With “Please Come to Boston” being the sole hit in his solo discography, Loggins — the second cousin of pop star Kenny Loggins — was sometimes branded a one-hit wonder.

Lawrence Rothman on Being Genre Fluid, Gender Fluid and Finding a New Home in the Americana World With Their Revealing New Album

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic Lawrence Rothman has been knocking around the music scene for two decades, but not until this year would anyone have likely pegged them as primarily an Americana artist. The L.A.-based performer didn’t necessarily come off as someone begging to set up a secondary base in Nashville — not with a list of collaborators or production clients that included Kim Gordon, Courtney Love, Girl in Red, Empress Of, Alison Mosshart and members of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Guns N’ Roses.

Beck Basks in Bittersweet Majesty With the LA Phil at Symphonic Hollywood Bowl Show: Concert Review

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic Soy un ganador — this was likely the sentiment of everyone who caught Beck‘s performance with the LA Phil Saturday night. It represented an apotheosis of the kind of pop-star-at-the-pops event that the Hollywood Bowl was veritably made for, with Beck going mostly off-brand as a live artist to emphasize the most languid parts of his catalog for maximal symphonic synergy.

JD McPherson Returns to Solo Career, Amid Ongoing Plant/Krauss Tour Stint, With the Refreshed Glam-Rock Sound of ‘Sunshine Getaway’ (Track Premiere)

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic It’s difficult to believe that JD McPherson, one of the great classic-minded rock ‘n’ roll singer-songwriters of the modern age, hasn’t had a new album of non-seasonal material out in seven years. That absence of fresh recordings hasn’t caused anyone to issue any missing-person alerts for him in the past few years, though. He’s been quite visible, serving as both the band leader and opening act for three successive Robert Plant/Alison Krauss tours.

‘I Am: Celine Dion’ Director Irene Taylor on Whether We Will See the Legend Sing Again, and Filming That Harrowing Climax: ‘She Said, I Don’t Want You to Cut That Scene Out’

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic “I Am: Celine Dion,” newly released for viewing on Prime Video, is so focused on what the singer has been through in more than a decade and a half of struggling with Stiff Person Disease that it’s hard to believe that director Irene Taylor didn’t even know Dion was ill when she signed on to the project. All she Taylor really knew, when she agreed to direct the film about a year of discussions, was that Dion seemed like a star who really, really had something to get off her chest… with little anticipation of just what kind of floodgates would open.

John Mayer on the Making of Dead & Company’s Mind-Bending Sphere Residency: ‘I Love That Adults Are Having Childlike, Wondrous Experiences at This Show’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic John Mayer says he didn’t always feel a sense of urgency about getting people out to see Dead & Company concerts … not even when the group was doing a final national tour in 2023. Now, he does, with a month and a half left on the group’s engagement at Las Vegas’ Sphere. He’s not making any pronouncements about this marking an end of the road for the band — a Grateful Dead offshoot that he formed with three original Dead members back in 2015.

Daryl Hall and Elvis Costello Make Double-Feature Dreams Come True at the Greek: Concert Review

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic Daryl Hall and Elvis Costello, take a seat. That might be a thing to shout out as a request the next time these two veteran singers co-headline a tour together, rather than calling out for “Maneater” or “Pump It Up.” It’s not that they aren’t standup guys, or that there is anything about their energy levels that suggests they need to take a load off.

Bob Weir Says Dead & Company at Sphere Is ‘Like Opera,’ and He Hopes Band Will Return With Even More Mind-Blowing Tech: ‘We’re Only Scratching the Surface Here’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic During Dead & Company’s current run of 30 shows at Las Vegas’ Sphere, no one is exercising the gift of gab on stage. As is typical for the Grateful Dead spinoff group, the music does all the talking, for three and a half hours — with additional non-verbal help from the world’s most advanced concert video design on the dome’s wrap-around screen.
