Lauderdale stays prolific

Thursday, May 22, 2014 – Jim Lauderdale will release his 26th album "I'm A Song," on July 1.

"I'm A Song" features performances by Lee Ann Womack, Patty Loveless, Buddy Miller, Al Perkins, Kenny Vaughn, Dennis Crouch, John Oates and Stuart Duncan, and more. Elvis Costello, Robert Hunter, Bobby Bare and Gary Allan helped write songs.

"King of Broken Hearts," Lauderdale's most requested tune, is re-recorded for the first time since his now out-of-print "Planet of Love" was released in 1991. "I wanted to do 'King of Broken Hearts' again since that album is out of print, and people keep asking for that song. That's one that I do at just about every show as a tribute to Gram Parsons and George Jones" said Lauderdale.

Lauderdale has been in a particularly prolific period for releasing albums. This will be his fourth album since October 2013. He has released "Old Time Angels," "Blue Moon Junction" and "Black Roses" since then.

CD reviews for Jim Lauderdale

CD review - When Carolina Comes Homes Again Jim Lauderdale is one of those artists who's pretty renowned amongst the famous, but not widely known to the public. In a never-say-die career (this is his 33rd album!), he did bag two Grammys and probably logged enough road miles to get to the moon. This is the "homecoming" record for the North Carolina native. He's enlisted other Tar Heel talent like Steep Canyon Rangers and Balsam Range to assist with the proceedings. And it's always a treat (first single "As A ...
CD review - From Another World Following the passing of the late, great James Brown, there are those that have argued that Jim Lauderdale rightfully deserves to inherit the title of the hardest working man in show business. And for good reason. An avowed and industrious multi-tasker, Lauderdale never rests, a habit that once resulted not only in his decision to release several albums in a single year, but more remarkably, multiple albums all at one time. Suffice it to say that Lauderdale has never adhered to the old adage ...
CD review - Time Flies Americana's most prolific artist has delivered another strong set of performances. Jim Lauderdale's signature singing manner, distinctively unhurried with elongated phrasing emphasized in nearly every song, may turn-off some - but if you haven't come under his spell by now, there isn't much chance of conversion as we head toward the 30th anniversary of "Planet Of Love." For the rest of us, "Time Flies" causes...well time to fly. "The road is a river, ...
