Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell CD 'The Traveling Kind'...

NPR Music: Jewly Hight review...

NPR Music: First Listen…

The young man sounds a bit shaken. His lover, perhaps the love of his life, has departed. He's surveying his options, talking to her even though she's not there, the way the jilted sometimes do. "I could wring out each memory until I get every drop."

Review by Thom Jurek:

GET DOWNTOWN... to the heart of Lexington for another series of free outdoor concerts… WUKY’s Phoenix Fridays 2015. The final show of the Summer is August 21 in Phoenix Park at the corner of Main & Limestone. “Gates open” at 5PM with live music from 5:30 to 9:30. Each night begins with one of the area's best bands… followed by two acts from around the country. Our final show includes Coralee and the Townies

Review by James Christopher Monger:

My Morning Jacket has built a reputation as a group who consistently challenges the paradigms in which they are placed. Since their start in 1999, the Louisville quintet has amassed over 2 million total albums sold, and received Grammy nominations for each of their last two. The New York Times wrote this about the band, “…the new kings of expand-your-mind, religious-experience rock…” and Rolling Stone named them as the "#10 Greatest Live Act”.
