View Trailer for The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams; Opry Country Classics Lineup Announced; New Video from Will Hoge

Juli Thanki | September 20th, 2011

  • The ACM Honors show was held last night. Tom T. Hall, the late Hank Cochran, Taylor Swift, Reba, and Larry Gatlin were among those who received awards.
  • Lydia Loveless, the 21-year old Bloodshot artist who counts Hank Williams and Britney Spears among her musical influences, chatted with Eric R. Danton for Spinner.
  • Check out the nearly seven-minute long trailer for upcoming album The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams.
  • 48 hours before its September 27 release, you can stream LeAnn Rimes’ album Lady & Gentlemen here.
  • Will Hoge’s got a new video for his killer song “When I Get My Wings.”
  • Luke Bryan delivered pelvic thrusts, backwards ballcaps, and a Lady Gaga cover at a recent show.
  • So the Emmylou Harris-Rodney Crowell duets record is probably going to be pretty excellent.
  • Give a listen to Brad Paisley and Tony Bennett singing “They Can’t Take That Away from Me.”
  • Josh Turner, John Anderson, Carrie Underwood, and more are scheduled to help Randy Travis celebrate 25 years of Opry membership on October 4.
  • Sarah Jarosz is on the cover of the newest issue of Acoustic Guitar magazine. But as she told John Lawless from the Bluegrass Blog, she didn’t have the nerve to buy a copy.

    Gosh, Kelly Dearmore actually liked the Carolina Chocolate Drops! That makes, let me count these all up, exactly TWO artists that we agree on! Must have gotten a bit chilly in hell today…

    I’m glad that smaller labels often have a general musical identities regarding the artists they sign. The defunct Hightone Records had a very interesting roster of country, Americana, and blues artists. Rounder and Sugar Hill/Vanguard usually sign top shelf interesting artists as well. Bloodshot is a label I’d like to like, but it just hasn’t happened yet and probably never will. Them’s the breaks…

    The trailer for the Hank project is an indecent tease. I can’t wait to hear this record!
