Justin Townes Earle #1519

Justin Townes Earle #1519

Justin Townes Earle ended up moving to Vagrant Records and surprised his fans with not one, but two, new albums within a year. The companion pieces, Single Mothers and Absent Fathers, are not concept records, but complimentary, as he describes, “like the two parts of Springsteen’s The River.” Our conversation w/ Earle was conducted live […]

Todd Grebe & Cold Country #1518

Todd Grebe & Cold Country #1518

Alaska-native, Todd Grebe, knows about Cold Country — not just the weather, but his band. After years playing music more influenced by bluegrass than country, his buddy and bandmate decided to pick up a Telecaster. The ensuing songs and record took the band back to Nashville, to record with several #CFRalumni. Podcast Stream or download […]

Folk Family Revival #1517

Folk Family Revival #1517

Folk Family Revival consists of three brothers and their buddy, but they are definitely moving towards psychedelic rock rather than straight-up folk with their sophomore album, Waterwalker, out now on Rock Ridge Music. With a homemade liquid light show from a visually talented friend, the luxury of regular studio access, and no external time constraints […]

Great Peacock #1516

Great Peacock #1516

Great Peacock blew me away during a live taping of their song, “Take Me To The Mountain,” nearly 18 months ago. I’ve been anxiously awaiting their debut full-length album, Making Ghosts, ever since. Recently released on This Is American Music, Great Peacock continues with the roots-based anthems and sing-along choruses, more Southern Indie than Americana. […]

John Moreland

John Moreland

John Moreland has been called a “grand secret waiting to be uncovered.” Fans who have already discovered this Tulsa, Oklahoma musician can’t get enough. He was one of the talented musicians we featured in Oklahoma: The State of Songwriting, though his appeal reaches far beyond the Midwest. The gritty cable TV hit Sons of Anarchy […]

Top 5 Emerging Oklahoma Songwriters

Top 5 Emerging Oklahoma Songwriters

Oklahoma is rich with material for folk music. It’s where hardheaded pioneers met hardscrabble conditions; where tradition and progress converge and conflict; where tornadoes sweep across the plains; and where the dusty open road beckons from all directions. Songs from the state continue to seep into the psyche of the American songwriter, and often-covered pieces […]

Tea Leaf Green

Tea Leaf Green

Our 2013 alumni, Tea Leaf Green, have been “leaking” the tracks from their new album one by one. As Trevor Garrod shared in our conversation, the band has not shied away from making massive changes in their sound or lineup, and this roller coaster keeps the ride interesting. LISTEN Unfortunately, you cannot listen to this […]

Jim White #1501

Jim White #1501

Jim White’s songwriting and visual art are some of the tangible fruits of his sometimes dark thoughts, but he is not the tortured Southern Gothic poet of his past. When Packway Handle Band (previously featured on Country Fried Rock HERE), sought White’s assistance in producing their new record, they ended up collaborating in a back […]
