– "In These Silent Days," the new album from six-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, performer, producer and New York Times Best Selling author Brandi Carlile, is out today on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records. The disc was conceived of while Carlile was quarantined at home with longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth. The 10 songs chronicle acceptance, faith, loss and love and channel icons like David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Joni Mitchell. Recorded once again at Nashville's RCA Studio A with producers Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, the album features Carlile (vocals, guitar, piano), Tim Hanseroth (vocals, bass), Phil Hanseroth (vocals, guitar), Cobb (guitar, percussion) and Jennings (piano, organ, synth) as well as Chris Powell (drums, percussion), Josh Neumann (strings) and special guests Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius on backing vocals on the track "You And Me On The Rock."
Asleep At The Wheel celebrates their half-century-long career with a brand new record, "Half A Hundred Years," on Home Records and Thirty Tigers. Three original members of Asleep at the Wheel — Chris O'Connell, Leroy Preston and Lucky Oceans —returned after 4o years to lend their voices and musicianship. Willie Nelson, George Strait, Emmylou Harris, Lee Ann Womack and Lyle Lovett all appear as well.
Newcomer Lily Rose makes her debut with the seven-song EP, "Stronger Than I Am," on Big Loud. Rose, a Georgia native, has gained some traction with the song "Villian."
