    Darrell Scott Performs at 56th CMA Awards

    Darrell Scott was tapped to join Chris Stapleton and Patty Loveless for a performance on the 56th CMA Awards show, aired on ABC TV.

    Stapleton and Loveless sang “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive,” which was penned by Scott and was recorded by Loveless (and many others) for her 2001 album “Mountain Soul.”  Scott, who plays 13 different instruments, was recruited to play dobro for the occasion.  Stapleton and Loveless shared the lead vocal duties, trading verses, and Stapleton’s wife/bandmate Morgane sang harmony as well.  It was a rare live appearance for Loveless, a five-time CMA Award-winner, and the crowd showed their appreciation and enthusiasm by rising to their feet and clapping along as Loveless belted the final refrain.  Scott has one public show left on his 2022 calendar, a concert in Bristol VA at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum on Dec. 8th.

    Seth Avett Pays Tribute to Songwriting Hero, Revered Folk Artist Greg Brown

    Today, Seth Avett announces Seth Avett Sings Greg Brown, a 10-track tribute to songwriting hero and one of the most revered contemporary folk artists of the American Midwest, Greg Brown. Coming November 4th, Avett transcribed, interpreted and dove deep into the repertoire of the songwriting legend who’s been one of his musical guiding lights since the age of fifteen.

    Recorded in hotels across the country while on tour with The Avett Brothers, the record penetratingly captures the spirit, sincerity and beloved characters that populate Brown’s best songs. Pulling from Avett’s favorite songs across Brown’s vast repertoire, the album touches on the simple human experiences that Brown is so known for bringing to life – trustworthiness, sincerity, intimacy, and surprising familiarity – highlighted by Avett’s rich voice and his precise, shimmering acoustics.
