HoF to Honor Patsy Cline with Biographical Exhibit; Cowboy Jack Clement Rebuilds; Album Releases

Juli Thanki | May 8th, 2012

  • Here is the video for the Carolina Chocolate Drops’ “Country Girl.”
  • Folk-rockers Girlyman are offering a free download of their single “Empire of Our State.”
  • Via press release: Phil Vassar will perform “Don’t Miss Your Life” on Fox & Friends May 10.
  • CMT.com’s Craig Shelburne caught Eric Church’s sold-out Nashville show: The most admirable part of his show may be that he dedicated so much of his set to original material. He did sing a few lines of “A Country Boy Can Survive,” but other than that, there was no weird musical tribute to Guns N’ Roses, John Mellencamp or AC/DC, which happens more often at country shows than you might realize. If you can sell a million records, you might as well play your own songs, right?
  • Out May 29: Wade Bowen’s The Given.
  • In honor of the late Warren Hellman, the San Francisco Symphony will include a suite of banjo music in their concerts this week.
  • Foghorn Stringband is guest-blogging for Prescription Bluegrass while touring Ireland.
  • “Wanted You More” is the next Lady Antebellum single.
  • Check out a new song from Jack Ingram.
  • Album releases:
