Amos Lee "Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song" Takes New Path

For his fifth album, Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song, Amos Lee has taken a different path for the recording; he worked in a new city(Nashville) with a new producer(Jay Joyce), and, for the first time, he brought his touring band into the studio with him.The twelve songs that resulted—the follow-up to 2011's chart-topping Mission Bell—bring Amos into new sonic territory, while retaining the impact of the scenes, characters, and stories we have come to expect from his songs. We will listen track by track this week on High Plains Morning, Monday through Friday from 9am to noon.

The music of Linda Ronstadt on HPM this Friday

Linda Ronstadt was not only the voice of California in the 70’s; she had a huge impact on an entire generation of singers and songwriters and became a cultural icon in the process. Whether you were a die-hard fan, a casual listener, or an avid hater, you couldn’t ignore her influence or deny her talent.  She had an uncanny knack for knowing a great song when she heard one, regardless of the genre.

There are a few families that show me how love looks and acts.  The Fullers do.  What some might see as a burden, they see as a blessing.  Read Mike’s feature from the Inspire section of Amarillo Magazine to get a glimpse into how this grandfather sees his grandson. 

With Mike’s approval, here’s the song he wrote for Max, “Son of a Daughter.”

It hasn't even been 11 full months since released The Carpenter, the North Carolina band's most recent collection of poignant and infectious, bluegrass-inflected folk-rock. And, given the lengthy touring cycle that each major album release generally spawns — the Avetts of last month's Newport Folk Festival with songs from The Carpenter — fans had no reason to expect new music this year.
