New Marty Stuart Album Due April 24; DelFest Lineup Announced; Keith Urban Sets San Antonio Rodeo Attendance Record

Juli Thanki | February 17th, 2012

  • On March 27, reissue label Real Gone Music will release B.J. Thomas’ The Complete Scepter Singles. Coming out on the same date is Rawhide’s Clint Eastwood Sings Cowboy Favorites.
  • Out March 6: Luke Bryan’s Spring Break 4 EP.
  • In his newest Tennessean column, Peter Cooper talks about his experience at last week’s Grammys, where, sadly, I Love: Tom T. Hall’s Songs of Fox Hollow didn’t win.
  • Here’s some video of Dierks Bentley’s recent appearance on Ellen.
  • Rascal Flatts released the track listing for their upcoming album, Changed.
  • Photographer Kirk Stauffer took a few shots at a recent Jayhawks show in Seattle.
  • Geoffrey Himes wrote a piece for the Nashville Scene about Kevin Gordon and his new, deeply personal album Gloryland. Here’s an excerpt where Gordon talks about the song “Don’t Stop Me This Time:” “That entire song is uncomfortably autobiographical,” Gordon confesses. “That’s the challenge that most people in my line of work face: How do you do your work and survive? Some years ago, I came to the conclusion, ‘I’m tied to this, regardless of what the world wants for me. This is what I do; I would write songs even if no one were listening.’ But when you have a family, it’s a weird position to be in. So you take deep breaths and push the plow forward.”
  • Justified music supervisor Greg Sill was recently interviewed about the music on the FX show, which has featured Cumberland River, Dave Alvin, and many other roots acts.
  • Keith Urban’s appearance at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo set an attendance record, with 16,799 people attending the performance.
  • Here’s a feature on Angela Easterling, an Americana singer who sings in French on her new album Mon Secret.

    Opry Alert! Tonight’s Opry will feature Sarah Darling, Steve Wariner, Mark Wills, Ricky Skaggs, and Diamond Rio. Grade B-. Looks like I will be tuning in to “Ricky The K” and his 50′s and 60′s rock oldies tonight at http://www.60sradio.com instead starting a 8 PM CST. Oh well…

    Thanks for that link to that interview with the guy that picks music for “Justified”. I love that show because of all those amazingly creepy hillbilly characters they dream up, and the good music featured is just a bonus.

    Peter Cooper’s reporting of his Grammy Awards experience was a good read, but then again Peter is normally quite entertaining.

    When I read that Ruthie Foster was raising a child with a female “partner” after being divorced from a man, the word “Obamavoter” began flashing brightly before me eyes! Congratulations Ruthie for making my artist blacklist in record time! Sheesh….

    “…the word “Obamavoter” began flashing brightly before me eyes!…”

    Maybe try laying off the hooch for awhile.

    There will be another Dave Alvin song on Justified tonight, so I hear.
