Two big new country releases from John Prine and Joshua Hedley
News out of Nashville recently is that the legendary singer-songwriter John Prine is releasing his first record featuring new material in 13 years, on 13th April 2018. Produced by Dave Cobb, The Tree Of Forgiveness sees Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, and Amanda Shires make appearances. The 71 year old is making his way to the UK in support of the record, to headline the Cambridge Folk Festival, and play Birmingham and Glasgow.
At the other end of the spectrum, also announced is the debut record from Joshua Hedley, a mainstay of Nashville's live music scene. His Mr. Jukebox is out on 20th April 2018 on Third Man Records. It's exciting and long awaited, and the fiddling singer has debuted his first video to tease the record.
