Routes and Branches Play List 02/13/10

With James McMurtry coming back to Eugene next week, I had the opportunity to talk with him on the phone this past week. Our conversation included highlights about recording his Live In Europe album, performing on Michael Nesmith's Videoranch and what songs that he is enjoying playing right now. I mixed this conversation in with his music during the second hour of my show.

Following the McMurtry set I played a set featuring tunes from the Crazy Heart soundtrack. The movie has finally come to Eugene and I'm looking forward to seeing it this afternoon.

Shotgun Majors will be filling in for me while my wife and I join John Hiatt, Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keen, Buddy Miller, along with many other artists on the 2010 Cayamo Cruise to Belize and Mexico. "Party Time"

Routes and Branches Play List 02/06/10

I was surprised and pleased this week when I took a look at the Americana Chart.

Pleased by seeing Ray Wylie Hubbard sitting at the top with his CD A. Enlightenment B. Endarkenment (Hint: There Is No C). I have been listening to Hubbard's music for so many years that I can't remember when I started. His new CD has some great song writing and deserves to be at the top of the charts.

I was surprised to see Allison Moorer's new CD Crows sitting at number nine on the chart. When I first listened to it, nothing really jumped out at me saying "I'm Americana music". Instead it felt more main stream to pop type songs. Now that it is getting so much air play on "Americana Stations" I think that I will have to give it a closer listen.

A number of good concerts are on our concert calendar in the next few weeks. I featured several up coming performers on this week's show.
