  • Alison Bonaguro picks a few girl on girl duets she’d like to see.
  • Shovels & Rope played “Shank Hill” for KEXP. Watch here.

  • The Secret Sisters talk to The 615’s Chuck Dauphin about their new album and tour with Nickel Creek.
  • Kristen Bell is hosting the CMT Music Awards once again; this time, she’ll be solo, which is good, because even a sloth would have more charisma than last year’s wooden co-host, Jason Aldean.

  • Last year’s Americana Music Festival and Conference in Nashville brought in more than $5 million in “direct economic impact.”
  • Producer/engineer/writer/Mary Chapin Carpenter band member John Jennings is battling metastatic kidney cancer. You can help offset the medical costs by contributing to this fundraising campaign.
  • Blues fans might want to make a pilgrimage to Cleveland, Mississippi. A recent post on AmericanBluesScene.com takes a look at the town’s musical treasures.
  • The Garden Theatre in Winter Garden, Florida is launching its first bluegrass concert series this summer. The Roys, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, and Chris Henry & The Hardcore Grass Band are among the acts slated to perform.
