Jean Shepard has been working for quite a while on a book called Down Through the Years. Fingers crossed it gets released sooner rather than later.
Sturgill Simpson’s Metamodern Sounds in Country Music will be released on May 13. Listen to “Living the Dream” and take a peek at the tracklisting (which includes a pretty sweet cover of one hit wonder When In Rome’s “The Promise”) here.
The Infamous Stringdusters released a video for “Let It Go,” the title track of their new album, which comes out April 1.
Out April 8: Linda Ronstadt’s The Duets, a compilation that includes collaborations with Dolly Parton (“I Will Never Marry”), Emmylou Harris (“I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still in Love with You)”), Carl Jackson (“The New Partner Waltz”), Laurie Lewis (a previously unreleased version of “Pretty Bird”) and more.
