Gnarls Barkley are the 'Odd Couple' & Gracin goes 'Crazy'

Riding high on the success of its single, "Crazy" duo Gnarls Barkley return with the album The Odd Couple (Atlantic Records) and the result is no sophomore slump here. The album only continue where St. Elsewhere leaves off.

The song to listen to over and over is "Run" because of its music and those lyrics.

Rating: 4 out of 5

After delivering a gold-selling debut and three consecutive top 5 singles to country radio, "American Idol" favorite Josh Gracin will release his much anticipated sophomore album, We Weren't Crazy (Lyric Street).

Gracin's new CD, allows audiences to take a more personal look inside the life of the "American Idol" season 2 finalist and former Marine. Josh worked with producers Marty Williams and Brett James on the CD's 11 tracks.

Gracin is admittedly most excited about his newest single, the title track, "We Weren't Crazy." The autobiographical song was written by Gracin, Tony Lopacinski, and Bobby Pinson about Gracin's personal journey from childhood to raising children and having a family of his own.

Gracin's debut album is certified gold by the RIAA and has sold more than 695,000 copies. He's one of only three new male country singers to be introduced in the last four years to earn a gold album. Gracin is also the only male solo country artist in recent years to release a debut album with three consecutive Top 5 country hits, including his first #1, "Nothin' To Lose."
