Wednesday Morning Music Shuffle – Honky Tonka Truck Mix

So, I guess this is it… Wednesday is here, and I begin writing without much of an idea about what I am going to say.  Not an unusual occurrence mind you, but unnerving all the same. In case you missed it, Mumford and Sons debuted their latest song last night. Check it out:

Their sophomore effort called, Babel is due out September 24 and will join a number of albums being released next month.  Even some of your favorite Ear to the Ground featured bands have new music coming.  Stay tuned – more information to come.
So… I discovered the Rabbit Hole on ReverbNation which to me is like a microcosm of what the whole internet is all about – except this Rabbit Hole is all about music. I’m sure you’ll hearing the results of some of my Reverb surfing soon… who knows maybe even sooner.
Today’s shuffle goes a little something like this:
I first became aware of Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons two years ago when they opened for Peter Case at 3rd and Lindsley for a Nashville Sunday Night show. The Wisconsin band recorded their latest records called Old Believers here in Nashville with producer Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs).  The song we have today is callled I’ve Been Accused.

Korby Lenker is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter with a colorful past and a bright future.  He’s one of those people I feel like I should have caught up with much sooner, but who I actually came across while browsing through ReverbNation.   Lovers and Fools is the title track off of his 2009 album. Grab the song using the widget below.

Or, head over to Amazon to get a copy of the CD.

Here’s Korby Lenker performing at the CD release show for Lovers and Fools.

When I went down the Rabbit Hole on ReverbNation, I came across Martha Ann Brooks from Walker County, Georgia.  Going to Facebook – I that she is friends with two of my friends, Will Kimbrough and Mary Gauthier.  Good company.  Today we have Could We Go Back  which is off of her 2009 album Lately…  Get the song via this Reverb widget or grab the whole album at Amazon using the picture below.

And finally, we close out what turned out to be a definite, country/folksy music shuffle with a track from the amazing Carolina Chocolate Drops. Country Girl is off of Leaving Eden which came out earlier this year.
