"Common Law Wife" has been in the top 5 on the Roots Music Report Country Americana Chart for several weeks, getting as high as #3!
Roots Music Report also gave it a 4 Star Review:
"Angela Easterling sets scenes and conveys emotions in a manner most convincing, be they light-hearted or downright unsettling. The South Carolina-based singer/songwriter does so by way of uncomplicated melodies, frequently graced with pleasing two-part harmonies. That latter trait shows up early on the haunting leadoff track, “Hammer”. Angst meets athletics for the Springsteen-ish protagonist of “Throwing Strikes” and we meet a 21st century Donna Fargo on the upbeat, throwback title track. Darker moments await on “Isaac Woodard’s Eyes” and “Arkansas Murder Ballad” Written by Duane Verh
"Throwing Strikes" was #2 in the Top 10 Songs on The Alternate Root:
"Angela Easterling stretches her arm and lets loose with her most recent album, Common Law Wife. She is practicing for the August 14, 2015 release, gathering stones and taking aim at the closed down mill, aiming for any windows left in the abandoned building, and “Throwing Strikes”
And Cashbox Magazine Named "Common Law Wife" #8 on their Looking Ahead Chart:
It was also in the Top 5 for the Most Added to the Americana Airplay Chart!
Angela was featured in a great review on ForTheCountryRecord.com:
"‘Common Law Wife’ is a wonderfully cohesive, brilliantly crafted and beautifully sung record that draws on traditional country, Americana and folk music to deliver a host of timeless songs. If Angela Easterling was celebrated before, then this record is sure to help the cause."
