The death of Merle Haggard, a legend among legends, casts a pall over this week.
Tonight’s ACM Awards will be hosted by Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan. Slated performances include a collaboration between Dolly Parton and Katy Perry, and Miranda Lambert joining up with Billy Gibbons and Keith Urban to cover the ZZ Top song, “Tush.”
Country music in 2016, y’all.
A slightly abbreviated post for this Easter holiday weekend builds even more hype for the upcoming Sturgill Simpson album.
When it comes to this week’s Sunday Selections post, we’re just like Tracy Lawrence: Runnin’ behind.
This week is all about that country grammar. And the Grammys.
The good folks at NARAS know how to keep things interesting, producing yet another diverse crop of nominees in the general, country, and country-adjacent fields.
Here are the personal picks from some of our contributing staff, along with who we predict will take home the gold tomorrow.
With a steady job as executive music producer for ABC-TV’s Nashville, as well as a hectic schedule in his own studio, Buddy Miller does not often release a new album. When he finally does, it’s bound to be excellent. Buddy Miller & Friends: Cayamo Sessions at Sea features Miller supporting some of Americana’s top artists. It demonstrates not only his sublime artistry, but his talent of nudging great singers into even greater performances.
We just kind of can’t with this year’s ACM nominees.
It’s a super-sized Sunday Selections for this week!
