Drivin N Cryin #1522

Kevn Kinney of Drivin N Cryin has been a thread throughout my life in music, from teenage punk wannabe sneaking into clubs for shows (thanks, Randy!), to not getting hired at the first radio station I interviewed for because the program director told me he hated DNC and I defended them anyway (look who turned […]

Rayland Baxter #1521

RayLand Baxter shaved his mustache and put the chicken down for his latest release, Imaginary Man. As he has grown as a songwriter and performer since his debut album, Feathers & Fishhooks, he has also honed his team and his flexibility in lineups, ranging from solo to trio with two fiddles, to a full nine-piece […]

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 […]

Can’t Hurt, Might Even Help

Hey! Evidently I repost bands’ stolen gear alerts so many times that people specifically contact me to help share their missing items. Happy to use our audience to help y’all get your stuff back, hopefully. Over the years, I’ve shared the brake lock and wheel locks that we have used, and also received some great […]

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. […]

Phlecia & Josh Sullivan are Year of October, creatively and personally joined together. Originally from Kentucky, the band has been in Nashville for a few years, touring regionally and self-recording and self-producing their two albums thus far.

Lilly Hiatt #1514

Lilly Hiatt #1514

Lilly Hiatt released Royal Blue, to the surprise of fans of her singer-songwriter styled debut a couple years ago. For those who have seen her live with her band, though, Royal Blue comes closer to catching Hiatt’s quirky, reflective, trippy sensibility and personality. Royal Blue moves forward, demonstrating her growth as an artist in her […]
