Trail Mix | April 2016

get more from BRO

It’s tough to not lead with the Grammy nominee when Trail Mix happens to have one.

This month, Trail Mix is excited to feature noted songwriter Hayes Carll, who drew early notice with his first record, 2002’s Flowers & Liquor, before knocking the Americana world on its ass with the 2011 release of KMAG YOYO. Carll is now nominated for a Grammy in the Best Country Song category thanks to Lee Ann Womack recording “Chances Are,” a song he included on the aforementioned KMAG YOYO, and he is poised to release his latest record, Lovers and Leavers, on April 8th.

“The Love The We Need,” off of Hayes Carll’s brand new record, is featured on this month’s mix.

The collection of artists featured this month is so good it should be illegal. Check out the new ones from Elephant Revival, O’Brother, Wren, The Bones of JR Jones, and 2/3 Goat.

There’s also brand new bluegrass from Asheville’s own Town Mountain, countrified bluegrass from guitar master Josh Williams, the soulful stylings of Janiva Magness, and solo work from Daniel Hutchens, long time vocalist for Athens rockers Bloodkin.

New songs from Shannon Labrie, Willie Nile, The Ragbirds, Matt Gresham, Andy Ferrell, and Jason Paulson also await.

Be sure to keep up with the Trail Mix blog this month. Chats with Derek Hoke, The Hackensaw Boys, Michael Daves, and Sammy Walker are on tap.

And, as is my plea to you each and every month, get out and buy some of this incredible music shared with you here by these artists on Trail Mix. If you dig it, go buy it. Get out and buy a concert ticket or share what you like with a friend. Give the love back to these musicians sharing with you.
