Sawyer Brown’s 17th album, The Hits Live, is an 18-cut collection featuring 14 live performances and four new studio songs. While the veteran band delivers onstage, the energy sounds more contrived on disc, according to our reviewer. Asylum recording artist Bryan White has released his first “best of” collection at the ripe, old age of 26. Greatest Hits focuses on cuts from his first three albums. The disc’s two new cuts find him reunited with longtime producers Kyle Lehning and Billy Joe Walker Jr. Also in New Releases, bluegrass multi-tasker Chris Jones sings, writes, produces and plays guitar on his latest album, Just a Drifter. The result is subtle and well-crafted, according to our reviewer.
