    New country albums display a conspicuous theme: Go tough or go home

    In a recession that just won’t quit, country music gives us options. Escape to the Cabo San Lucas of your mind with Kenny Chesney. Find strength in hearth and family with Brad Paisley. Or, if you follow the singers trying to scrap their way onto Nashville’s A-list, buckle down and get tough.
    With a bundle of releases dropping this month, the tough-talkers stand out. Ashton Shepherd’s “Where Country Grows” and Eric Church’s “Chief” are far and away the two strongest country efforts of 2011, each brimming with blow-ups, kiss-offs and a few salty tears between the sneers.
    Smooth-talkers Blake Shelton and Chris Young — who both drop anticipated albums on Tuesday — could learn a few moves from Shepherd and Church: talk tough, act tough, espouse tough.
