EDITORS’ NOTES

Joshua Hedley is one of the latest country acts signed to Jack White's Third Man Records, after the quietly successful Margo Price. Like Price, Hedley seems to have been plucked out of an imaginary past, where countrypolitan sheen meets an outsider's edge. With Mr. Jukebox, his debut album for the label, he's just as convincing singing heartbroken honky-tonk on "Counting All My Tears" or venturing into borderline-psychedelic cowboy territory on "Weird Thought Thinker." Tying it all together is a touching cover of the '40s Disney standard "When You Wish Upon a Star," which recalls Willie Nelson at his tenderest.
