Gunslinger
By Garth Brooks

The title for Garth Brooks' 11th studio album came to him in an interview with The Tennessean when conversation turned to what he liked most about being on the road.

“I said, ‘It just feels good to be out there being a gunslinger again,’” Brooks said. “Just aiming with the heart and shooting from the hip, that’s what you do on the stage, right? And, lucky enough, you’ve got the ammo of ‘Friends in Low Places,’ ‘Callin’ Baton Rouge,’ ‘Shameless’ and you do. You’re a gunslinger out there. And each show’s different and you just shoot from the hip all night long.’ As soon I said it, I knew that was the album title right there.”

The Weight of These Wings
By Miranda Lambert

"Divided into two segments that trace a woman's steps away from the security of a coupled, anchored life and eventual return to both herself and the risk of intimacy, TWOTW is the most musically and conceptually cohesive release yet from country music's most respected younger female star. It bears a strong connection to other works by contemporary country women demanding equal time and space with men, like Rosanne Cash, the Dixie Chicks and the Joni Mitchell of Hejira." — Ann Powers, NPR Music

24K Magic
By Bruno Mars

24K Magic (pronounced "twenty-four karat magic") is the third studio album by Bruno Mars. The album was due in March, but Mars' participation in the Super Bowl halftime show postponed it several months. At that time seven songs had already been recorded. "It’s what we want to bring to the table musically. You hear these ’90s influences on the whole album," Mars said.

Eight Days A Week: The Touring Years

Academy Award winner Ron Howard’s authorized and highly anticipated documentary feature film about The Beatles’ phenomenal early career is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962–1966) — the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim.

Ron Howard’s film explores how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this extraordinary phenomenon. It explores their inner workings — how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together — all the while exploring The Beatles’ extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities.
