Stuart, Milk Carton Kids, Shellhart, Clark release CDs
Brandy Clark released a self-titled disc, produced by Brandi Carlile, on Warner. Recorded at the Shangri-La studio in Malibu, Cal., the album features 11 songs. The album also includes special guests Derek Trucks and Lucius as well as Matt Chamberlain on drums, Jedd Hughes on guitar and Steve Fishell on pedal steel. Clark has released three acclaimed albums of her own including 2020's "Your Life is A Record."
The Milk Carton Kids - the countryish/folk duo of Kenneth Pattengale and - dropped "I Only See The Moon," via Far Cry Records in partnership with Thirty Tigers. The 10-song release is the follow-up to their 2019 disc, "The Only Ones."
Alabama-born singer Ella Langley releases her debut EP "Excuse The Mess" via Columbia Records and Sony Music Nashville. Produced by Will Bundy, the eight-track EP features the single "That's Why We Fight" featuring Koe Wetzel, as well as her stripped back, personal song "Could've Been Her."
Warner Music Nashville singer/songwriter Jordyn Shellhart makes her label debut with "Primrose." Produced by Cameron Jaymes, "Primrose" contains 12 songs of which Shellhart co-wrote nine and self-penned three. Born in Wyoming and ultimately ending up in Nashville at the age of 10, Shellhart scored a publishing deal at 14, followed by a record deal, Grand Ole Opry debut at 15 and on a country-wide tour by 16. But that came to a halt as she lost her voice in the midst of it all. Shellhart eventually was able to resume singing and racked up credits as a songwriter, including Little Big Town's Grammy-nominated "Sugar Coat" and songs recorded by Kelsea Ballerini, Cody Johnson and Don Williams.
Tyler Rich revisits some of his biggest songs with reimagined versions on the EP, "Unplugged in Nashville." Produced by Rich alongside Julian Raymond, the five-track collection is out on The Valory Music Co. Alexandra Kay helps out vocally on "Thinkin' We're In Love."
Zoe & Cloyd's "Songs of Our Grandfathers" pays homage to their respective grandfathers. Natalya Zoe Weinstein's grandfather, David Weinstein, was a Jewish klezmer musician who emigrated from Ukraine to New York by way of Argentina, while John Cloyd Miller's grandfather, Jim Shumate, was a well-known North Carolina bluegrass fiddler. Four numbers feature Andy Statman. His 1995 album with David Grisman, "Songs of Our Fathers," inspired Zoe & Cloyd.
