Hot Rize resurfaces
Tuesday, June 10, 2014
– Hot Rize will tour for the first time in almost 25 years in support of the bluegrass band's new studio album this fall.
The tour will start in Colorado in late Sept. ember, include stops at IBMA's Wide Open Bluegrass Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco, and hit the Midwest and east coast along the way with stops in New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
"We've had fun over the years playing some of our favorite festivals as we've all continued our solo careers, but the last few years we've started feeling the tug to make new Hot Rize music. With the new album, we decided it was time to hit the road and try to reach some new heights, said Pete Wernick. "Even with the time away and all of our other ventures, we're still like family, and adding Bryan Sutton on guitar brought a new energy to the band. We are very excited to share the new songs with fans."

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: With or without band, Isbell satisfies
Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»

In fact, Yola and Kiah's other group, Our Native Daughters, are nominated in the same category - Best American Roots. Yola has three other nominations as well.
The clear winners... »»»
