After the success of her critically-acclaimed 2021 release Daddy s Country Gold, Melissa Carper, dubbed HillBillie Holiday by friend and collaborator Chris Scruggs, was eager to get back in the studio. With co-producers Andrija Tokic (St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Hurray For The Riff Raff) and Dennis Crouch (The Time Jumpers) behind the boards again at Tokics analog paradise The Bomb Shelter in Nashville, Carper assembled that same crew of magical music makers - plus a few more - to embark on her newest effort, Ramblin Soul, set for release November 18th via Thirty Tigers.

Carpers deep, old-timey music roots were firmly planted as a child, playing upright bass and singing in her familys traveling country band in rural Nebraska. Her love of country classics was cultivated as she laid beneath the console listening to her parents record collection. Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, and more became the soundtrack of her youth. When Carpers father gifted her a collection of Jimmie Rodgers recordings, she began to find her voice and calling as a songwriter.

Carper attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on a music scholarship, and spent much of her time in the music library, instinctively drawn to the great jazz classics and jazz vocalists such as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and Nat King Cole. She also discovered Lead Belly, uncovering a deep well within when singing his songs. Carper stands firmly on the shoulders of American ramblers, crooners, and songsters - the building blocks of her musical foundation. In 2020, grappling with the loss of regular gigs, Carper and Patek moved to a friends farm near Austin, working in exchange for housing, organic vegetables, and fresh, country air. The simpler life afforded Carper the space and rejuvenation needed to channel her muse, and begin writing for her next album.

I had a handful of songs about rambling around and living a free life that I wanted to weave through the album, Carper recalls. I wrote the title track driving back home to Texas, and it felt like the seeds of the next album were planted. I also knew I wanted Ramblin Soul to have a different feel than Daddys Country Gold, with more upbeat and diverse styles and grooves. Ramblin Soul features a co-write with life long ramblin buddy and bandmate Gina Gallina, a song penned by friend and frequent collaborator Brennen Leigh; a reimagined classic from folk pioneer Odetta; and ten Carper originals. The album ventures into blues, early rock and roll, and old school soul, along with Carpers signature styles of country, western swing, and jazz. Carpers lifelong, steadfast listening has come to fruition in the songs on Ramblin Soul. Her childhood love of the family record collection planted the seeds of what is her own bountiful orchard today.

The universe feels real on The Turnpike Troubadours because the band resolved to let the album happen on it's own time. Moving out to the Prairie Sun recording complex in the desert country of Cotati, California, setting up in former chicken coops converted into studios, they metaphorically unplugged the clock and worked studiously through 12-hour sessions, wrapping up only when each story and every note rang true. There's "7 Oaks", recounting a life made desperate by poverty, made more vivid by an incongruous hoedown accompaniment. "Bossier City," focused on a sad mill worker who blows his pay regularly on gambling and booze.

Charley Crockett will release his latest album The Man From Waco on September 9th via Son of Davy/Thirty Tigers. Crockett wrote or co-wrote all 14 songs on the album, and in many ways The Man From Waco is the purest distillation of his artistry to date. What started as a demo session with producer Bruce Robison at Robisons studio The Bunker outside Austin, TX turned into the first album Crockett has ever made with his band The Blue Drifters backing him from start to finish. Mostly first takes with only a handful of overdubs, The Man From Waco finds Crockett refining his singular Gulf & Western sound which continues to captivate an ever-growing legion of fans.

I just wanted an honest partnership: do it at your place, live to tape, everybody in the room, Crockett says of the recording experience, and Robison was happy to accommodate. The magic is in the performances on that tape. Thats what Bruce wanted to do, thats what I wanted to do. When we were done, I said these are masters, not demos.

Theres a loose narrative thread that ties the album together, but at the center of The Man From Waco is Crockett, who continues to trust his instincts and carve out his own singular space. Eschewing the ever-growing siren song of major labels and GRAMMY-winning producers, Crockett is forging ahead as a mostly DIY artist, calling his own shots and giving himself the space to strive for greatness on his own terms.

Everybody was telling me: go right, go right, go right, says Crockett. I went left. I had to hold on to what has gotten me this far.

The Man From Waco will be in a record store near you on September 9th on CD, Vinyl, and an indie record store exclusive edition featuring alternate album artwork.

Joshua Hedley is a singing professor of country & western, he declares on his raucous and witty new album, Neon Blue. It might sound like a punchline, but its not. An ace fiddle player, a sharp guitarist, and a singer with a granite twang, hes devoted his entire life to the study of this genre. Ask him about it and hell explain: When all my friends went off to college, I went to Nashville. I was 19 years old playing honkytonks and getting an education. His 2018 debut, Mr. Jukebox, showcased his deep knowledge of countrys history, in particular the beery ballads of the 1950s and 60s. His mentors were George Jones, Ray Price, and Glen Campbell, but his most remarkable accomplishment was putting his own spin on their style.

Neon Blue, on the other hand, examines a very different, often forsaken era: the early 1990s. The last bastion of country music, says the professor, was the early 1990s, roughly 1989 and 1996. You could turn on the radio and immediately know youre hearing a country song. You could still hear steel guitar and fiddle. But there was a hard fork around 1996 or 97, when country veered off into pop territory. Neon Blue asks, What if that fork had never happened? What if country kept on sounding like country?

That era may have been dismissed by traditionalists at the time as slick or overproduced, but Hedley finds something exciting in that old hat-act sound, and Neon Blue plays up the excitement of bigger-than-life choruses, the relatable emotions of those sad-eyed ballads, and the inventiveness of the lively production. The sound is modern, he says, but its still discernibly country.

Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician MollyTuttle will release her anticipated Nonesuch Records debut, Crooked Tree, April 1 (on CD and digital. LP will be May 13) with her new bluegrass collective Golden Highway.

Recorded live at Nashvilles Oceanway Studios, Crooked Tree was produced by Tuttle and Jerry Douglas and features collaborations with Sierra Hull, Old Crow Medicine Show, Margo Price, Billy Strings, Dan Tyminski and Gillian Welch. The album explores Tuttles love of bluegrass, which she discovered through her father, a music teacher and multi-instrumentalist, and her grandfather, a banjo player. Across these thirteen tracks, all of which were written/co-written by Tuttle, she honors the bluegrass tradition while also pushing the genre in new directions.

I always knew I wanted to make a bluegrass record someday, Tuttle says. Once I started writing, everything flowed so easily: sometimesIve felt an internal pressure to come up with a sound no ones heard before, but this time my intention was just to make an album that reflected the music thats been passed down through generations in my family. I found a way to do that while writing songs that feel true to who I am, and it really helped me to grow as a songwriter.

In celebration of the new music, Tuttleand Golden HighwayBronwyn Keith-Hynes (fiddle), Dominick Leslie (mandolin), Shelby Means (bass) and Kyle Tuttle (banjo)will embark on an extensive headline tour beginning tonight with shows at Seattles Tractor Tavern (two nights), Portlands Mississippi Studios (two nights), Los Angeles Roxy, Salt Lake Citys State Room, Boulders Fox Theatre, Ashevilles The Grey Eagle and Nashvilles Station Inn, among several others.

Im starting to realize that being an outlier and a weirdoit doesnt have to be a bad thing, says Sarah Shook. Shook pauses, then adds with a grin, It can be whatever you want it to be.

Shook is home in North Carolina, talking about Nightroamer, the hotly anticipated new album from their band, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers. Backed by white-knuckle playing from Eric Peterson on guitar, Aaron Oliva on upright bass, drummer Jack Foster, and Adam Kurtz on pedal steel, Shook has pulled from Hank Williams, Elliott Smith, the Sex Pistols, and Shooks own inquisitive, open, outlying self to create pop-savvy, honky-tonk punk thats both an escape and a reality checka re-opened wound and a balm. Relationships and life-changing realizations are dissected with honesty and humor, three tight minutes at a time.

When Sarah Shook & The Disarmers released Sidelong four years ago, the irreverent quintets debut turned heads around the world. Then 2018s follow-up Years hooked everyone from Rolling Stone to Vice. This aint no country for hipsters or posers, said No Depression. Its real, raw, mean-and-evil-bad-and-nasty bidness. Then, the first two albums turned into a tease: The pandemic shut down the world, just as The Disarmers finished recording Nightroamer in Los Angeles. The band has had to sit on the albumuntil now.

Nightroamer is worth the wait. This is still a band whose recordings beg to be heard live, either in a punk-rock hole in the wall or honky-tonk roadhouse. Shooks voice is crystallinebut boozy, too, with a cadence that sounds comfortable resting in the pocket before lagging, jumping, or cozying up to the offbeat. What initially may feel like a slip is actually a strokeand listeners cannot get enough.

Produced by Pete Anderson, Nightroamer is the confident next step fans hoped The Disarmers could take. I think this record is different than ones weve done in the past. It feels every bit as expansive as I wanted it to feel, says Shook. I didnt want there to be a shocking, jarring difference, but I definitely wanted it to feel like things are opening up. Its a bigger feeling experience.

Asked what they hope listeners experience, Shook is clear. Music is one of the ways we can connect to other people, they say. Thats my hope: That people feel seen and they feel connected to something that brings them a sense of peace.
