Mountain Heart

When: Sat., March 17, 8 p.m. 2012

Many people have said Mountain Heart lost their hillbilly soul when singer Steve Gulley left the band. Indeed, since his departure and the arrival of Josh Shilling, the band has made a strong shift toward the contemporary pop side of country, confirmed by the title track of their latest album, That Just Happened. Mandolin chopping and guitar-string breaking has been replaced by loud drums and lyrics instructing listeners to "shake their hips," reflecting a more manufactured and tired pop-country sound very common in Nashville. This bait and switch doesn't satisfy. —Dan Schram

Price: $21-25
