Don Gallardo‘s latest album, Still Here, shares his signature sound with fresh vocal phrasing and deep instrumentation.

Notable contributors include Erin Rae and Luella. Gallardo shares raw, honest insight into independent music making. He reveals the situation that nearly ended the album mid-recording. While many...

Caleb Caudle‘s new album, Crushed Coins, builds dreamy, ethereal landscapes. The newest Country Fried Rock podcast (below) features an in-depth conversation with Caudle about recording in Los Angeles and Nashville and expanding his sound. With familiar players from his previous albums, Caudle found new sounds by keeping the plan flexible. The pedal steel goes ambient rather than country, yet it's clearly a Caleb Caudle record.

Tim Nielsen of Drivin N Cryin #1802

1/17/2018
More
Atlanta's Home Town Band Tim Nielsen co-founded Drivin N Cryin with Kevn Kinney in Atlanta in 1985. Drivin N Cryin were hometown heroes before their debut album, Scarred But Smarter, was even released, as R.E.M. had already "made it huge" for a Georgia band by then. Whisper Tames the Lion was their major label release on Island Records, who also re-released SBS. By the time Mystery Road came out, Drivin N Cryin were on the road to major rock band stardom. Catch the almost-rise, and...

In Memory of Chris Porter: Shonna Tucker #1707

11/19/2017
More
Shonna Tucker emerged from self-imposed music exile to play bass for Chris Porter‘s final album, Don’t Go Baby It’s Gonna Get Weird Without You. After she left the Drive-By Truckers, she formed a band and released a great album that we featured on a previous podcast. Later, she questioned whether she was meant to play music, and drove a tractor and fed pigs on a farm. Porter’s call to Tucker to play bass came at the perfect time and was just what she needed to jump back into music with...

In Memory of Chris Porter: The Mastersons #1706

11/6/2017
More
Friendships run deep when you are a musician, and those with whom you can pick up right where you left off after months on the road become family. Chris Porter had a gift for forging deep, fast friendships with people in every little town he toured across the country, but especially with his tight-knit chosen family of fellow "lifers." Eleanor Whitmore and Chris Masterson of The Mastersons were family for Porter. Integral to the sound of his prior album, This Red Mountain, they dropped...

More
Will Johnson (Centro-Matic, South San Gabriel) produced Chris Porter‘s final album, Don't Go Baby It's Gonna Get Weird Without You, as well as his previous record, This Red Mountain. Both albums were recorded with Johnson producing and Britton Beisenherz engineering and mixing at Ramble Creek Studio in Austin, Texas. The bands differed in each project, as did Porter's vision for each album. On Don't Go Baby, Porter was ready for a rollicking rock record, bringing in multi-instrumentalist...

In Memory of Chris Porter: Andrea Juarez #1704

10/16/2017
More
Andrea Juarez never planned to release an album, but it seemed like the best way to honor her fiance, Chris Porter, who passed away on tour October 2016, when their van was rear-ended on the interstate. Mitchell Vandenburg also was killed, and Adam Nurre miraculously survived the horrific wreck. Porter was mostly finished with tracking his album, Don't Go Baby It's Gonna Get Weird Without You, which he had recorded in marathon sessions with Will Johnson (Centro-Matic) producing, and Shonna...

With a fresh mastering for vinyl and successful showcase at AmericanaFest 2017, Boo Ray and his band continue to tour the US with his distinct brand of Jerry Reed-inspired rock and roll. He’s a heckuva picker and performer and just as laid back and easy-going as you could imagine, laughing at his own jokes because they’re funny.

Sadler Vaden Interview

More
Originally posted on http://countryfriedrock.org/sadler-vaden-1609/ Sadler Vaden released his debut full length solo album in August 2016. His DIY effort morphed and was scrapped then re-imagined and recorded over a few years. What ultimately became this upbeat, pop influenced rock record demonstrates Vaden's expertise gleaned from fronting his own band in the early 2000s for 8 years, playing for Drivin N Cryin, and most recently for Jason Isbell. Even his cover of John Moreland's song,...
