Ryan Adams Says ‘Fuck the Rain’
Ryan Adams has shared a brand new song from his forthcoming album Big Colors. Listen for a little guitar solo action from none other than John Mayer on this track titled ‘Fuck the Rain.’
Big Colors is only one of three records that will come out before 2019 is through. Stay tuned for collaborations with Bob Mould, Benmont Tench, Don Was, and the Section Quartet coming April 19th.
Congrats to the 2019 Contemporary Roots Juno Nominees
The 2019 Juno Awards will be live from Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario on March 17th, 2019. For those who aren’t familiar, it’s the biggest night in Canadian music!
Let’s start with our man Donovan Woods – he’s written many songs that you’re hearing from other artists and he’s up for both Songwriter of the Year and Contemporary Roots Album of the Year for his albumBoth Ways.
Good news, there was more where that came from! He just shared his new song ‘Go To Her,’ recorded at the same time as “Both Ways,” but cut from the final tracklist.
Congratulations to all the nominees in the Contemporary Roots Album category:
In Our Time
The Deep Dark Woods
The Sheepdogs also got a few nods including ‘Group of the Year.’
Whitehorse was nominated for their holiday album A Whitehorse Winter Classic.
Carmanah and Her ‘Roots’
Carmanah, a.k.a. Laura Mina Mitic is a free spirit from Victoria, British Columbia. We caught up while I was visiting over the holidays and we talked about everything from landing on the name ‘Carmanah’ to her song ‘Roots.’ She’s a guest on this weekend’s episode.
