Anderson East has been busy. He wrapped a 2-month tour with Sturgill Simpson and has recorded “Find ‘Em, Fool ‘Em and Forget ‘Em” (George Jackson / Rick Hall) at Muscle Shoals’ Fame Studios. Anderson East releases “Delilah” this May, his debut on Low Country Sound (through Elektra Records), the new imprint of Dave Cobb (Prod. Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell).
Robert Earl Keen open The Bluegrass Sessions on his Happy Prsioner album (Dualtone Records) with a rough and tumble version of the Flatt and Scruggs classic, “Hot Corn, Cold Corn,” creating the video in the same raucous house-party fashion, complete with hootin’, hollerin’ and no small amount of bullwhippin’ in the background.
Australian Darren Hanlon spanned two continents for an exploratory adventure of the American South, for the story of Where Did You Come From?, his first album in five years. A battered guitar, one Amtrak pass, five recording studios, and 15 random musicians.
The All-Togethers have a new album release, To the Sober go the Spoils, set for a March 13, 2015. The band had some down time between recording and releasing, so they took up “Shadowboxing” (from the new album) in video form.
