David Olney visits with Alamo Jones The Voice in Black on the The Alamo Jones Show on SiriusXM Radio‘s SiriusXM Outlaw Country Channel 60 on SATURDAY, July 15 and  again on SUNDAY, JULY 16! It’s a great four-hour show, with David Olney sitting in on the 4th hour for some conversation, a live performance and listening to songs from his new “Don’t Try To Fight It” record. Alamo Jones – a/k/a “The Voice in Black” – worked cue cards for The Johnny Cash Show and toured the world with the “Man in Black” before launching his own recording career and serving as a trusty sidekick for the legendary Cowboy Jack Clement at the Cowboy Arms Hotel And Recording Spa.

Don't Try To Fight It album cover“ …The new album [“Don’t Try To Fight It”] is amped up, highlighted by a blues snarl that you cannot dismiss. Again, Olney brings his A game to these dark and uncharted times.”

The “Don’t Try To Fight It” album release MUSIC + ART EVENT at The 5 Spot in Nashville was spectacular. Thanks to so many folks who came from near and far, including Brock Zeman and Blair Hogan who made the trek from Ottawa to open the show. The boys performed songs from Brock’s new “The Carnival Is Back In Town” and left many jaws agape.
 
We hope to make more jaws drop way up North from April 20-30, 2017, as we tour together in Eastern Canada, co-billing shows and squeezing in a little recording time. Canada is a bit of new territory for Team Olney. Please share the good word and join us for shows in:  Sudbury, Ont. – Worthington, Ont. – Espanola, Ont. – Perth, Ont. – Picton, Ont. – Oakville, Ont. – Sarnia, Ont. – Woodstock, Ont. – and – Wakefield, Que.

Perhaps you’ve heard of Mr. Rodney Crowell? His new album, “Close Ties” hits close to home. Be sure to listen to “Nashville 1972” where he takes a nostalgic look back at Nashville and name-checks the characters who came in search of a song, including yours truly. See and hear a recent CBS-TV “Saturday Sessions” live performance:

San Francisco-based progressive bluegrass band Front Country is fairly new to Nashville, but knows a good song is timeless. Lend an ear to their new “Other Love Songs” album, featuring a brilliant recording of “Millionaire” (originally released by David Olney on his “Roses” album on Philo/Rounder Records).  

Listen to Front Country’s version here:
