Country artist Brit Taylor’s highly anticipated new single, “Cabin in the Woods,” and video premiered yesterday on Wide Open Country and is available everywhere now.  Produced by Grammy winners Sturgill Simpson and David “Fergie” Ferguson, the not-quite-bluegrass and somewhere-left-of-country-center song is an invitation to join Taylor on a drive back to her East Kentucky roots.  It’s a foot-stompin’, hillbilly revival about loving the simple things in life and having friends along for the ride.  

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of his iconic solo debut, Radney Foster is touring through Summer 2023, his first stop at Nashville's City Winery. “Thirty years ago, Radney Foster opened up his heart, wrapped it in lap steel and Fender guitars, shouted it from a microphone mountain in a voice of bluebonnet twang, and created a work of riotous loss along the lines of Merle Haggard or Buck Owens," says author/historian Peter Cooper. “Del Rio, TX 1959 is an album that mines the personal to unearth the universal.”

The name Duane Betts is very familiar to anyone that is a fan of rock music and especially southern rock. He was born into the amalgam of two historic names in rock and roll. His father Dickey Betts and his band mate Duane Allman were pioneers of southern rock guitar driven music, namely the Allman Brothers Band. It’s not surprising that Duane Betts' early musical influences came from within his family. Betts has harnessed these influences and over the years created his very distinct writing and playing style.
