Jim Lauderdale is an unsung national hero.\n\n\n\nFans of country music that don't know about this Grammy winning silver haired country crooner need to start paying attention. Lauderdale is a songwriter's songwriter, the kind of guy that folks call when they want to collaborate on a country music gem.\n\n\n\nWhen they call, Lauderdale doesn't disappoint. \n\n\n\nThis month, Trail Mix is happy to feature "One Way" off of his new release - his 32nd!!! - From Another World.\n\n\n\nThis month includes a track from another powerhouse musical icon. I have been a fan of Chris Robinson since the earliest days of The Black Crowes. Since that band's dissolution, I have followed his other projects, including the psychedelic groove rock he outs out with the Chris Robinson Brotherhood. Check out "Comin' Round The Mountain" on this month's mix.\n\n\n\nTrail Mix is also happy to welcome back friends old and new to the June mix. Check out new tunes from Keller Williams, Heather Maloney, Dylan Leblanc, The Lark & The Loon, Jamestown Revival, and Chuck Mead. \n\n\n\nThere are also great tracks from Robin Alice, Mindi Abair & The Boneshakers, Frankie Lee, Kelly Hunt, Sour Bridges, Wild Wing, TK & The Holy Know Nothings, Ida Mae, Griffin House, Ciaran Lavery, and Biglemoi.\n\n\n\nBe sure to stay tuned to the Trail Mix blog this month. Chats with Andy Thorn and the Resonant Rogues are on tap, as is a video premiere with The Steel Wheels.\n\n\n\nAnd, of course, get out and buy some of this music. These songs are just a glimpse into the incredible work these artists are churning out. Grab a record. Grab a concert ticket. Spread the word.
