Hear Alabama, Alison Krauss Duet on Romantic ‘Come Find Me’

Alabama’s repertoire has always been a solid blend of foot-stomping anthems and tender ballads, and the tradition continues on Southern Drawl , the first album of original songs from the trio of Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook since 2001.

Metric Mull ‘Fortunes’ on Foreboding, Futuristic New Single

Metric  have released another spacey, stirring, synth-soaked new track, “Fortunes,” from their upcoming LP, Pagans In Vegas . Hear Metric’s Glossy New Single ‘The Shade’ The song, which premiered on Entertainment Weekly , begins with Emily Haines crooning over punchy percussion and an ominous piano progression, both of which are intermittently sliced by a sickly, eerie synth line.

Gregg Allman Previews Peach Fest, Talks Allmans Reunion

The Allman Brothers-curated Peach Festival returns for its fourth season of jammy vibes, screaming fiddles and drum circles this weekend, but, according to Gregg Allman, don’t expect this to be the moment where his band, who took their final ride  to midnight at the Beacon Theater last year, comes together for an impromptu (or even planned) reunion. Because, if the Allmans ever do jam again, Allman likes to think bigger — and doesn’t want it to appear like just a publicity stunt for the annual event tucked away on the Montage Mountain resort outside of Scranton, Pennsylvania. See Gregg Allman’s Sentimental ‘Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More’ “It’s a coincidence that we are on the same bills, because we are booked by different people,” Allman tells Rolling Stone Country about the lineup, which includes ex-bandmates like Warren Haynes , Jai “Jaimoe” Johnson and Oteil Burbridge, along with Bob Weir  (with Billy and the Kids), Willie Nelson & Family, Old Crow Medicine Show  and Santana, as well as buzzy groups like Whiskey Myers and Cabinet. “They don’t book us together so we can jam.
