Last May, Earle released “Kids in the Street,” a roots-rockin’ eclectic grab-bag of honkytonk, Texas swing, New Orleans R&B, folk, and even some pop melodies and hooks, on songs that are unabashedly nostalgic and sentimental for lost youth. NPR calls it “his most pleasing and playful effort to date.”
Earle directly confronts the legacy handed down to him by his father, Steve Earle, on the poignant song, “Mama’s Eyes,” on his album, “Midnight at the Movies,” when he sings, “I am my father’s son/I’ve never known when to shut up/I ain’t fooling no one/I am my father’s son.” His most recent albums, “Single Mothers” and “Absent Fathers,” have deepened the autobiographical nature of his work.
The Guardian hears “echoes of Guthrie and Springsteen” in Earle. Earle himself claims to be influenced by artists including Randy Newman, Chet Baker, the Replacements, Tom Waits and Bruce Springsteen. Accolades for Earle include the 2011 Americana Music Award for Song of the Year, as well as the 2009 Americana Music Awards in the Best New and Emerging Artist category, as well as nominations for Best Artist and Best Album.
Joshua Hedley has long been a fixture on Nashville’s music scene as a sideman, playing fiddle for the likes of Robert Ellis, Jonny Fitz, and Justin Townes Earle. Hedley has now swapped his fiddle for guitar and is making a go of it as a country singer-songwriter.
As part of East Nashville’s close-knit brigade of musicians, Hedley has no shortage of support from his peers. He’s featured prominently in the 2015 documentary film Heartworn Highways Revisited, a follow up to the seminal 1976 cult classic music documentary about the 1970s Nashville songwriting community led by Guy and Susanna Clark.
Hedley’s soaring, velvet voice and jukebox-ready songs are 60s-era solid country gold. Unlike several of his peers, Hedley’s not trying to put a new spin on an old sound. Joshua Hedley’s country music is your grandfather’s country music and it’s all the better for it.
