We run the whole landscape of country this issue, with our cover star the mercurial talent that is Kris Kristofferson. A songwriter held in huge regard by his peers, an actor, a quarter of the famous Highwaymen supergroup and much more, Kristofferson plays a rare UK show this summer – and who knows when the next may even be? We speak to Kris as well as key collaborators inside, and profile the life and recordings of one of country’s most singular talents in huge depth.

Summer 2018 promises to be a great time for country in the UK. The inaugural Black Deer festival take space in June, and we speak exclusively to headliner Jason Isbell about his incredible rise from southern rock outsider to Nashville Hall Of Fame Museum’s Artist in Residence for 2018.

We meet up with the incredible Brothers Osborne, who are just wrapping an explosive UK tour to talk about new album Port Saint Joe, and we speak to Blackberry Smoke, who also rock hard yet are in love with ole George Jones. We meet John Carter Cash to hear how a new generation still find truth and beauty in the words of his late father – the incomparable Johnny Cash – on the stunning Forever Words album.

There’s much, much more. We revisit how Loretta Lynn’s Coal Miner’s Daughter grew from a humble song into an Oscar-winning movie, we speak to songwriting legend John Prine, we preview Mary Gauthier’s upcoming UK tour with her insight on new album Rifles & Rosary Beads, we have a full 8-page roundup of who was hottest at this year’s Country 2 Country festival, plus there’s Kenny Rogers’ classic The Gambler revisited, Lanco, Lindi Ortega, Charley Crockett, Ashley Monroe, and a full 35 new albums on review including The Shires, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Jason Aldean, Old Crow Medicine Show and more.

Some things old, some things new. All country. Enjoy the issue.
