This week's new music included two excellent albums. The first one is Buddy & Julie Miller's new disc "Written In Chalk", my feature disc for this week. Ever since I saw Buddy play with Robert Plant & Alison Krauss I have been interested in anything he is doing. Julie wrote most of the songs on Writtin In Chalk and they get help from Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris and Robert Plant. Although Buddy and Julie have several solo albums each, I read that this is only their second joint album and what a good one it is.
Another side note on Buddy this week is that he also plays on the new Brigitte DeMeyer album "Red River Flower".
The second disc that I enjoyed a lot this week is the new one from Justin Townes Earle called "Midnight At The Movies". I only got to play one cut from it today , but it has several good tracks that I will bring to you on future shows.
One last note about this week is that John McCutcheon will be in town this Sunday to play a benefit for Food For Lane County. John is one of my favorite singer story tellers ever. He has a big heart and it is always in the right place.
