Saturday Brunch – November 4th, 2017

Amy Headlines, News, Saturday Brunch

Welcome to Saturday Brunch! Last week we had a 90’s theme, this week we’re all over the road!

Darius Rucker

First up, have you listened to Darius Rucker’s new LP? It’s called When Was the Last Time and it’s been on repeat here following it’s first spin on Monday. I’m particularly obsessed with this killer collaboration which see’s Darius partner up with Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Charles Kelley. Sadly the combo didn’t get together to record it (it was pieced together separately), but here’s hoping there’s a festival bill that brings them all together for a live performance soon!

Drake White

We had a 90’s fest last week, and somehow this one slipped through the net! Check out Drake White’s take on Tracey Lawrence’s hit “Time Marches On”

Blake Shelton

Never one to shy away from publicity, Blake Shelton has been ALL over all forms of media this week ahead of the release of Texoma Shore, his 11th studio album. It needs a few more listens but from what we’ve heard so far it’s his best in years! Here’s what Blake has to say about the music and his life in general right here….

Jason Isbell

With less than a week to go to the 51st CMA Awards, part of us wants to see Miranda Lambert walk away with the gong for album of the year, but then we’d also love to see a win for this guy shake things up a little!

Isbell with his band the 400 Unit performed in the UK this week and we caught the Birmingham show, coming away with that special sense we’d witnessed a band at the top of their game. All three Isbell albums already sound like classics and I can’t see any of this year’s CMA nominations coming even close to what these guys are achieving.

Ramblin’ Roots Revue

With Halloween out of the way, our friends over at the Ramblin’ Roots Revue are already in the Christmas spirit announcing a festive special in the form of a double header with Legends of Country and Felix Holt & The Radicals. This show is back at the Bucks Student Union on December 14 and tickets are on sale now!

Tickets!

Margo Price

Margo Price announced a surprise show at The Lexington in London and the touts promptly snapped up a swathe of tickets. Having previously played to much larger audiences in the UK and with the Lexington at 200 capacity, it was ever to be, but don’t give up hope, Margo is on the case!

And if you can’t get to the show at the Lexington, head over to Rough Trade East where Margo is performing in-store on Tuesday.

Touts need not apply!

I live for the experience of live music. Nashville is my kind of town and life feels pretty good at a country concert in the sun with a cold beer in hand. My appreciation of country came via my Dad’s collection in the 70’s and 80’s and I spent my teens listening to Springsteen. On a trip to the states about ten years ago I flicked to the CMT channel and Brad Paisley’s Whiskey Lullaby had me hooked. Since then my love of the genre has seen me travel to the US regularly to attend concerts, festivals and more intimate songwriter sessions in some great venues. It is terrific to see artists making the return trip this side of the Atlantic but equally refreshing to see some fantastic homegrown talent gaining recognition. This is an exciting time for “new country” and I am very happy to be along for the ride.
