About Lucinda Williams:
In a rare instance of an artist taking a full-length reconsideration of an earlier work, GRAMMY-winning singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams released This Sweet Old World – a complete re-recording of her 1992 album Sweet Old World – via Highway 20/Thirty Tigers on Sept. 29, 2017. Produced by Williams and Tom Overby, This Sweet Old World – recorded to mark the 25th anniversary of the original album’s release by Chameleon/Elektra – features all-new renditions of the ’92 set’s 12 songs, some of which have been dramatically rearranged and rewritten. Download the album on iTunes and Amazon.
About Steve Earle & The Dukes:
Three-time GRAMMY Award recipient and 14-time GRAMMY nominee Steve Earle is a cornerstone artist of Americana music. One of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation, he has released 16 albums. Warner Bros. Records has released remastered versions of six of his classic albums, culminating with 1997’s El Corazón on November 24 (Black Friday). His songs have been recorded by such music legends as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Carl Perkins, Waylon Jennings, Vince Gill, and Joan Baez. He has created such country classics as “When You Fall in Love,” “Guitar Town,” “Goodbye’s All We’ve Got Left,” “A Far Cry From You,” and “Nowhere Road.” His diverse collaborators have included such notables as The Pogues, Lucinda Williams, Patti Smith, Sheryl Crow, Shawn Colvin and others. Tune in to Steve Earle’s weekly radio show “Hardcore Troubadour” on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country Channel.
About Dwight Yoakam:
Dwight Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, and he is a 21-time nominated, multiple GRAMMY Award winner. He has 12 gold albums and 9 platinum or multi-platinum albums, with five of those albums topping Billboard’s Country Albums chart and another 14 landing in the Top 10. Nearly 40 of Yoakam’s singles have charted on Billboard, with 14 peaking in the Top 10. In September of 2016, Yoakam released his first ever bluegrass album, Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars…, on Sugar Hill Records. Featuring a band of bluegrass luminaries, this album boasts a collection of reinterpreted favorites from his catalogue, as well as a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain.” Produced by nine-time GRAMMY winner Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton), Jon Randall (songwriter of “Whiskey Lullaby”), and Yoakam himself, and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge, this album reflects the love for bluegrass music that Yoakam developed at an early age in Kentucky and that has inspired him for many years thereafter. In 2015, Yoakam released his album Second Hand Heart on Warner/Reprise records, with several songs co-produced and mixed by Chris Lord Alge, the follow up to his critically-acclaimed album 3 Pears. He received the Artist of the Year award at the 2013 Americana Music Honors & Awards ceremony, the most prestigious award offered by the organization. In addition to his musical career, Yoakam is a formidable film and television actor whose films include Sling Blade and Panic Room. In 2016, he appeared in David E. Kelley’s Amazon series Goliath, and he most recently appeared in director Steven Soderbergh’s feature Logan Lucky with Channing Tatum and Daniel Craig. Yoakam is capable of seamlessly melting into his roles and impressively standing toe-to-toe with some of the world’s top thespians over the course of his storied and successful acting career, including Jodie Foster, Tommy Lee Jones, Jared Leto, Forest Whitaker, and Matthew McConaughey. SiriusXM recently announced a 24/7 channel curated by Yoakam titled Dwight Yoakam and The Bakersfield Beat ‘Where Country Went Mod’, which will launch later this spring.
About King Leg:
King Leg has been described as melodic rock ‘n’ roll that draws equal inspiration from the original British Invasion as it does from the roots of American rock, country, and R&B – then recombines these inspirations into something freshly-brewed and ultimately timeless. “Millennial Mod” as some call it. King Leg’s debut album, Meet King Leg produced by Dwight Yoakam and Chris Lord-Alge, was released on October 20 via Warner Brothers Sire/Via Records. Upon signing King Leg, Chairman of Sire Records Seymour Stein had the following to say: “King Leg makes American Music. It is Rock ‘n’ Roll, with a nod to R&B and Country – which as we know, helped to usher in Rock ‘n’ Roll back in the 1950s. The lightning rod for Rock ‘n’ Roll was when Elvis Presley signed to RCA in 1956 and put out ‘Heartbreak Hotel’. When I heard King Leg’s music, I was totally blown away – not just by the immediacy of the songs, but also the extraordinary voice – reminiscent of the great Roy Orbison. King Leg may be young, but musically he is fully mature.”
