Friday, April 20, 2018
– Brothers Osborne are finally out with their sophomore effort, while veteran band Old Crow Medicine Show releases a disc of their own material and Joshua Hedley is out with his ultra-traditional debut.
Brothers Osborne scored hits on their full-length debut with "Stay a Little Longer," "It Ain't My Fault" and "21 Summer." "Shoot Me Straight" is the first single from the new release, "Port Saint Joe," which contains 10 songs. T.J. and John Osborne had a hand in writing all 10 songs. Joyce also produced the 2016 debut, "Pawn Shop."
Last year, Old Crow released "50 Years of Blonde on Blonde," the group's take on the Bob Dylan album. "Volunteer" is the group's sixth studio release. The album was recorded at Nashville's RCA Studio A with Americana uber producer Dave Cobb, known for his work with Jason Isbell and Chris Stapleton. The album features electric guitar for the first time since 2004 when David Rawlings added his Telecaster to "Wagon Wheel."
Ashley Monroe is out with "Sparrow," which highlights her vocal prowess. Monroe throws in disco sounds a few times.
Hedley played fiddle for Justn Townes Earle at one point. He also scored face time in the movie "Heartworn Highways Revisited" in 2015. On his 10-song debut on Third Man Records, Jack White's label, Hedley plays honky tonk, swing and countrypolitan forms of country on "Mr. Jukebox."
