amer­i­cana round-up

UNCUT - - New Albums -

Fol­low­ing last year’s Full Cir­cle, her first stu­dio ef­fort in over a decade, loretta lynn (right) re­turns in Au­gust with a second vol­ume of Cash Cabin Ses­sions, Wouldn’t It Be Great. Again pro­duced by Patsy Lynn Rus­sell and John Carter Cash in Ten­nessee, the LP jux­ta­poses new songs – “Ruby’s Stool”, “I’m Dy­ing For Some­one To Live For”, “Ain’t No Time To Go” – with re­work­ings of Lynn clas­sics like “Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind)”. The 85-yearold is also sub­ject of a ma­jor ret­ro­spec­tive to salute the 50th an­niver­sary of Nashville’s Coun­try Mu­sic Hall Of Fame And Mu­seum. “They best have a big space,” she says of the mem­o­ra­bilia ex­hi­bi­tion, which opens in Au­gust. “I have a lot of stuff!” Mean­while, sturgill simp­son leads the nom­i­na­tions for the 2017 Amer­i­cana Awards, to be held in Nashville in Septem­ber. He’s up for best artist, al­bum and song (“All Around You”), but faces stiff com­pe­ti­tion from the likes of Drive-By Truck­ers, Ja­son Is­bell and Hur­ray For The Riff Raff. With the out­door sea­son upon us, Suffolk’s three-day mav­er­ick Fes­ti­val kicks things off on June 30, fea­tur­ing Justin Townes earle, al­bert lee and more. Gateshead’s sum­merTyne amer­i­cana Fes­ti­val fol­lows towards the end of July, this year’s lineup in­clud­ing The shires, an­galeena pres­ley and Stax leg­end wil­liam bell. ROB HugHES
