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.

More news for The Lone Bellow
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: Washburn, Fleck give reasons to be happy
"I sing because I'm happy," sang Abigail Washburn toward the end of her show with fellow banjo picker (not to mention, husband) Bela Fleck in the closing number of the night "His Eye is on the Sparrow."
Washburn had a lot of reason to be on this night in a beautiful setting at Harvard University. The two held court over two... »»»
Concert Review: For The Jayhawks, no reissues needed
The Jayhawks have not released any new music since 2011's "Mockingbird Time," but, well actually, there are reasons for one of the key contributors to the alt.-country music.
In July, "Sounds of Lies" (1997), "Smile" (2000) and "Rainy Day Music" (2003) saw the light of day again in expanded reissue versions.... »»»

Jake Brown can't stop writing about music. Over the past 10 years, he's published 35 books, ranging from "Rick Rubin: In the Studio" and "Suge Knight: The Rise, Fall and Rise of Death Row Records" to "Heart: In the Studio." In 2012, he won the Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards in the category of Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research.... »»»
Perhaps there are few more beloved names in the world of country and bluegrass music than Ricky Skaggs and his wife Sharon of the country music family act The Whites. The two have been close friends since their teenage years through music, first meeting at a festival where White was performing with her father Buck White and sister Cheryl, and Skaggs was playing with Keith Whitley.... »»»
Taking a second look at the two-album deal he had recently signed with the Rounder/Concord group, and then at his busy upcoming touring schedule, Jerry Douglas suddenly realized he didn't have a lot of time to waste. The first album, "Three Bells," a collaboration with fellow resophonic guitar (aka "Dobro") titans Rob Ickes of Blue Highway and the late Mike Auldridge was pretty much ready to go, the sessions having been completed shortly before Auldridge's passing in December 2012 following a lengthy struggle with cancer.... »»»
Rock & Roll Time
One of the seminal figures in the development - some would say, the assault - of early rock 'n' roll, Jerry Lewis always possessed pure country credence as well. His initial outings mined the full spectrum of his rural Louisiana roots, bringing them to bear in a daring, often outrageous display of unrepentant madness and machismo that rivalled Little Richard and even Elvis himself in terms of sheer bravado. »»»
The title of Florida Georgia's second full length is accurate. For the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly, that means girls, girls and more girls plus an ultra dose of partying. That is evident from the refrain of the title track, which, of course, focuses on Friday night activities. "I brought the songs and you brought the party/Only one way to do it up right..."
Old Boots, New Dirt
Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless. Aldean is so entrenched in the mainstream country marketplace now, we just need to accept him as he is, the same way we reluctantly accept Taylor Swift as "country." It's mighty tempting to subtitle a review of Aldean's new "Old Boots, New Dirt" release as 'Pickup Trucks & Pickup Lines," »»»
