    Woody Paul Presents Acuff Fiddle to Ketch Secor in Moving Opry Moment

    It was a true Opry Moment Saturday night at the Opry’s 93rd birthday celebration and performance. Woody Paul gave an obviously stunned and delighted Old Crow Medicine Show‘s Ketch Secor a fiddle Roy Acuff had given Woody when he was 16.

    “I used to hang around the Opry when I was a kid, and I had a three dollar Sears and Roebuck fiddle,” Woody told the packed house. “Roy said ‘You need a better fiddle,’ and gave me this. I figure if Roy was here tonight he’d approve.”

    With that, Woody called Ketch to the mic and said “It’s a birthday party, and I want to give you a present,” and handed the fiddle to Ketch. The audience, witnessing a teeny tiny bit of history, audibly gasped. “Ketch is one of the greatest old time fiddlers I’ve ever heard, and I’m glad he’s part of our Opry family carrying on the old time traditions,”

    Glide Calls Will Hoge’s My American Dream “Perhaps This Year’s Most Powerful Political Protest”

    Glide writes, “His anger has a purpose beyond simply railing against what he feels is wrong. Some of the material is a search for empathy. Hoge says, “At the end of the day, that’s really what people are after, is just to be treated with some respect.” Read the full review here.


    The Main Squeeze Premieres “It Ain’t Me” with Relix

    The Main Squeeze told Relix, “We’re excited to share this one. We worked with a great producer named MARØ who became a friend which is always the best type of collaboration. We feel like he helped us find a really cool dimension to the band’s sound, the record has an attitude to it and it sort of has two sides to it musically and flips back and fourth, it was a lot of fun to make.” Read more and listen to the track here.


    Billboard Premieres Ryan Montbleau’s video “Looking Glass” from his Upcoming Album “Woodstock Sessions”

    Ryan tells Billboard, “The idea is just that everybody these days — myself included — we spend so much time staring into these screens, into our phones,” he explains. “It’s amazing the way we can connect nowadays, but it’s also sort of amazing the ways it can isolate us, too. The song is playing into those feelings — there are some sad sort of lines, some more playful lines. It’s not all bad, but it’s not all good, either.” Read more and watch the video here.

    The Artisanals “Go For Gold” in Charleston

    Charleston City Paper writes, “The resulting album begs for the Artisanals to be mentioned in the same breath as groups like Dawes and Blitzen Trapper who have managed to reinvent classic rock tropes with originality, wizened musicianship, and sharp songwriting. The band is ramping up its business ambitions along with its sound, aiming for a marketing and radio campaign along with a steady tour schedule designed to get their music in front of as many ears as possible. Regardless of what happens though, Delaware is his typically sanguine self.”
