  • “Down here, there's a lot going on and there's nothing going on at the same time," Cobb says of life in the south.This new one from Cobb does a good job capturing the laid-back, easy-going attitude of Southern living. The Georgia native recorded this at the legendary Capricorn Sound Studios in Macon, mostly with local musicians. “…I'm from Georgia, so I always look for the southern star. This album, the songs, the sounds… they're all a product of where I'm from, both musically and environmentally.
  • We lost the wonderful singer/songwriter Nanci Griffith in 2021, and now have this loving compilation that features the late John Prine, who recorded his version of “Love At The Five & Dime” with Kelsey Waldon shortly before his own passing in 2020. It’s also got Nanci Griffith covers from artists like Steve Earle, Iris DeMent, Emmylou Harris, and Shawn Colvin. Other highlights include Billy Strings and Molly Tuttle together on “Listen The Radio,” Lyle Lovett and Kathy Mattea taking on “Trouble In The Fields”, and The War And Treaty covering “From A Distance.” The new tribute is out on Rounder/Concord Records, which has also reissued Nanci’s first few albums.
  • On November 14, 2022, Charley Crockett played his first-ever show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, a sellout which Marcus K. Dowling at the Tennessean praised as "country music's mother church turning into a 2,500-seat honky-tonking juke joint." Now we have Live from the Ryman, a document of the raucous, celebratory evening. The full show will be available as an album as well as a beautifully shot concert film. Crockett and his ace band pulled from Crockett’s deep catalogue – 12 albums and counting – and mixed in covers from George Jones, Tanya Tucker, James “Slim” Hand, Jerry Reed, T-Bone Walker and Townes Va
  • It’s the 23rd release from the California bluegrass singer going back to her days with the Good Ol’ Persons and Laurie Lewis, and the 7th featuring this band of hers. It features six songs written by her, a few written by bandmates Greg Booth and Tom Bekeny, and songs learned from the Osborne Brothers, Earl Scruggs, and John Prine.
  • It’s a live benefit album featuring these three Hawaiians. Digitally available September 15th, through Republic Records, Songs For Maui features a ten-track collection of songs recorded live on location at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center’s Castle Theater during Jack’s special 2012 Hawaiian Islands tour.
  • It’s the Cambodian/American band’s 6th full-length album, and first one since 2015’s The Deepest Lake. It’s a more down-tempo affair compared to their previous releases, but the same level of psychedelic grooves and fascinating storytelling we fans have come to expect. A “Ting Mong”, by the way, is a decoy or mannequin in Khmer folklore, almost like a scarecrow, but used to fight away evil spirits and plagues.
  • Pop quiz: List all the groups that got their start in their school choir, then went from singing for pocket change in the Jim Crow South, to performing for three different American presidents, soundtracking the Civil Rights movement and helping define modern gospel music as we know it… That’s right, there’s only one, and nearly 85 years later, they’re still singing.
  • Following the Strays release earlier this year, Price has earned nominations for Artist of The Year, Album of The Year, and Song of The Year (“Change of Heart”) at this year’s Americana Honors & Awards, tying for the most nominations of any single artist in 2023. Price is joined by Strays producer Jonathan Wilson, as well as new collaborators including Buck Meek of Big Thief, plus singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ny Oh. Together they dive deeper into the sacrifices it takes to find freedom, the grit it takes to make it, and the consequences that come with all of it.
  • It’s an album of celebration for Allison Russell, and as Pollstar describes, “The Returner, another powerful effort, also represents a next step in Russell’s career and life as she leaves her trauma in the past and steps forward in what she calls “fierce joy.”
  • This highly anticipated new one from Tyler is now out. Ahead of the release, his team debuted a breakthrough lead single, “In Your Love,” alongside an official music video, which debuted as YouTube’s #1 trending music video. Since then, the song has garnered over 6.1 million video views and 30 million on-demand streams. This 7-song album also features new renditions of Kris Kristofferson’s “Help Me Make It Through the Night” and S.G. Goodman’s “Space and Time”.
