– 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.
