Miller, Lauderdale set duets disc

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 – Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale teamed up for a duets record, "Buddy & Jim," coming out Dec. 11 on New West.

"I've been waiting for a long time for this, and can't believe it's finally happening to get to record with Buddy is a dream," Lauderdale said. "We made it in three days, but it sounds like it took four."

After plotting for years to record together, Miller said, "We made this record in three days, but it sounds like it took four."

n the vein of Johnnie & Jack and The Louvin Brothers, the duo stepped back to the 1950s when male country artists wrote, sang and harmonized together. Adding their own spin on the sound, the cohorts have created an album with a mix of new tunes and older favorites.

I Lost My Job Of Loving You, which they wrote, is available to hear today exclusively on CMT Edge. "Buddy & Jim" will be available as a CD as well as limited edition vinyl on Black Friday (Nov. 23) at independent record stores taking part in Record Store Day's Back To Black Friday promotion.

Songs are:
1. I LOST MY JOB OF LOVING YOU
2. THE TRAIN THAT CARRIED MY GAL FROM TOWN
3. THAT'S NOT EVEN WHY I LOVE YOU
4. DOWN SOUTH IN NEW ORLEANS
5. IT HURTS ME
6. VAMPIRE GIRL
7. FOREVER AND A DAY
8. LONELY ONE IN THIS TOWN
9. LOOKING FOR A HEARTACHE
10. I WANT TO DO EVERYTHING FOR YOU
11. THE WOBBLE

The Majestic Silver Strings CD review - The Majestic Silver Strings
Buddy Miller is one of Nashville's finest guitarists. He's also a tasteful player. Therefore, while "Buddy Miller's The Majestic Silver Strings" may read like a guitar lover's dream, this is not just an excuse for Miller - along with his fellow guitar stars, Bill Frisell, Marc Ribot and Greg Leisz - to show off on said silver strings. In fact, this album is as much about great (mostly) female singing, as it is about string bending. For instance, it's such a »»»
Universal United House of Prayer
Buddy Miller has always been on the outskirts of mainstream country music, mixing influences from gospel to blues to bluegrass and hanging out with folks like Jim Lauderdale and Emmylou Harris. He continues to march to the beat of a different drummer on this, his first true gospel album. He sets the record up with a dark electric rocker, "Worry Too Much," in which he frets about the problems with the world. In the next song, a bright acoustic reading of the Louvin Brothers' "There's a Higher »»»
