Routes and Branches Play List 09/11/10

This week I had local musician Willie McEachern into the studio to share a couple of tracks from his forthcoming solo album Knee Deep. Listeners to my show may be more familiar with Willie's bass playing for the band Sideroads. Willie wrote 3 of the tunes on the Sideroads album Destinations which was released in 2009. This solo project he says he created mostly by him in his home studio with some help from other local musicians including some of his Sideroadsbuddys. Look for Willie to feature some of his new tunes when he plays with Sideroads at Cosmic Pizza on Saturday, September 18th.

The Americana Music Awards were held in Nashville this week and I was happy to see Hayes Carll take home the award for new/emerging artist this year. He had been nominated for it before so I not sure if he is all that new but at least he is gaining some national recognition now. He will be at Sam Bond's Garage on Sept. 29.
I was also impressed to see Ryan Bingham get Artist of the Year this time around. He had some pretty good musicians to beat this year including Patty Griffin, Levon Helm, Steve Earle and Ray Wylie Hubbard. Bingham also picked up "Song of the Year" with his tune The Weary Kind which he wrote with T Bone Burnett for the movie, Crazy Heart.
