The Lone Bellow sings with heart of gold
Monday, September 16, 2013
– The Lone Bellow, who will hit the road in October for a leg of its tour, will be working its new single, the crowd pleaser, Green Eyes and a Heart of Gold.
The song is hitting radio airwaves now, and The Lone Bellow has launched an interactive Instagram campaign to coincide with the new single announcement. Fans that utilize the hashtag #Greeneyesandaheartofgold will have their Instagram images featured on The Lone Bellow website.
The Lone Bellow recently partnered with Talenthouse to ask fans to submit designs for the official tour poster around its national headlining tour. After six weeks of submissions and public voting, the results are in. The band chose the winning design and is revealing the artwork of Fabian Gampp as the first place winner. The second place winner was determined by public vote, and the honor goes to the design of Siraj Ul Hassan. Both designers will receive online visibility from The Lone Bellow and the first place winner's design will be printed and used as the official poster of The Lone Bellow forthcoming headlining tour, kicking off Oct. 22 in Atlanta and ending Dec. 11 in Los Angeles.
Opening artists for the fall tours will include: Matthew Perryman Jones, Greg Holden,
Aoife O'Donovan and Ivan & Aloysha.
The Lone Bellow will play a special WFUV-sponsored show at Carnegie Hall on Oct 18.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Womack sings "real country music"
Lee Ann Womack made it quite clear where she was coming from three songs in to her first show in the Boston area in years. "We're gonna play country music," said Womack after playing a sparking version of the new song "Don't Listen to the Wind." "I mean real country music."
By that, Womack actually meant... »»»
Concert Review: Wait at LakeShake for Paisley proves worth it
The one thing that could be controlled over the three-day Windy City LakeShake country music festival was the weather. With thunder, lighting and rain in the skies on Saturday night, Brad Paisley was forced to cancel that night.
But Saturday's loss was Sunday's gain because he ended closing the inaugural fest with a set that was also by... »»»

Sitting in a motel room in Houston after a weekend gig at the Mucky Duck, singer/songwriter John Moreland is in a pretty good mood. His career is on a major upswing, and he is riding some pretty big critical success of his latest release, "High on Tulsa."

Allison Moorer packed a lot of living in the past five years leading up to the recently released "Down To Believing." The results are evident throughout the effort, like a light at the end of a tunnel. Writing or co-writing 12 of the 13 tracks, Moorer is fearlessly open and autobiographical. "Even when I try to make them about something or someone else, they always end up being about me. I am the subject that I know best."
Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams
After serving as a sideman to some of the most distinguished luminaries in the biz - Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Levon Helm and Mavis Staples among them- it seems well past time that guitarist/producer Larry Campbell would step out on his own and spotlight his skills as both a singer and songwriter. It's to his credit however that he opts to share the spotlight with his wife and collaborator Teresa Williams... »»»
Kacey Musgraves is a welcome throwback in these bro and modern country times. That means you're going to hear sharp lyrics with more than a touch of humor, story songs and even instrumentation that recalls traditional country, like pedal steel, mandolin and a Johnny Cash drumbeat. »»»
