The album does not come out until February but here is another first look of what you will be hearing. With a 70’s vibe that will have you digging out your Roberta Flack records, this one is a stunner.
It’s Christmas and no one can fix it. A Christmas song even Grinchs’ can get behind. “Coming back from the country full of good food and lousy beer.” And yes, that is Jackson Browne singing in the background.
I am not sure any of us would want to live in a world without Willie. In a world without Willie that whiskey river runs dry.
It helps that everyone in the East Nashville band Cordovas is a lead singer. Even better when your latest record, That Santa Fe Channel, is produced by Kenneth Pattengale of The Milk Carton Kids who brings a sparseness to the songs that serves to enhance the vocal harmonies. “I’m The One Who Needs You Tonight” is one of the first songs the band played and has been a staple in their sets from the beginning.
Luke Spiller, another stellar front man.
The queen of country music has a new record coming out soon. Here is the first single.
It is great to hear Ray Benson and The Avett Brothers getting together to pay tribute to the songs of Willie Nelson.
