  • The Band Perry is working on material for a new album and writing with folks like Sheryl Crow.
  • Bob Dylan is also working on a new record, having recorded some tracks with Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo. (That link will take you to a fine feature in the Aspen Times on Los Lobos.)
  • …and a Q&A with Erin Enderlin, a singer-songwriter who has penned tunes like “Monday Morning Church.”
  • Kevin Gordon is the focus of the new Tennessean music podcast.
  • Michael Hossack of The Doobie Brothers passed away earlier this week at the age of 65.
  • This summer’s Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman look excellent, with Sarah Jarosz, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, The Gibson Brothers, Ricky Skaggs, and more scheduled to appear.
  • As part of Record Store Day this April, Sugar Hill is reissuing Townes Van Zandt’s At My Window, Ricky Skaggs and Tony Rice’s Skaggs and Rice, and releasing a 7” from Black Prairie.

    I can totally get on board with McBride’s new single choice. I was never a huge fan of the Train original, but the duet reworking in very interesting, and I really like it. I’ll be curious to see what sort of radio reception it gets.

    Tonight’s Music City Roots show features: The McCrary Sisters, The Carter Brothers, Nash Street, Paul Kramer and Swing Street, and Stephanie Taylor and the Boxty(?) Bluegrass Band. Can’t say I’ve ever heard of any of them before, but for free who cares! (lol)

    I wish Martina McBride’s next single would be “I’m Saying Goodbye” (to mainstream country music)…

    This needs to be the year WSM starts broadcasting those Bluegrass Nights from the Ryman!!! They would be soooo much more enjoyable than the average Grand Ole Opry show are these days. Crikey, mate!

    Oh great CMT wants to focus on Roots Music so they can muck that up too. I hope Alison Bonaguro is a participant on the CMT Edge Blog to provide comic relief.
