If you’re looking for some new music to listen to, we’ve got what to listen to this year from Music Critic Melissa Ruggieri.  Who’s coming out with new albums in 2016?  Melissa says we’re actually taking a trip back in time.

  • Elton John is back with Wonderful Crazy Life – this record is going to be more upbeat and with the colorful cover it looks like he’s acheiving that
  • Rick Springfield and his new album Rocket Science
  • First Bon Jovi album without Richie Sambora called This House is Not for Sale
  • Cyndi Lauper is releasing a country album.  She went to Nashville to record it and is featuring some big names in country like Willie Nelson and other guests that’s she is keeping under wraps for now.

Melissa Ruggieri is the Pop Music Critic at the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. She has been writing about music in Atlanta, Virginia and South Florida long enough to have seen more than 2,000 concerts and can still remember when MTV was awesome. She lives in Atlanta with her husband and two adopted cats.
