The Buddy and Jim Show

Buddy Jim and Me 3

On Saturday Sept 20 in Nashville I went to Buddy Miller’s studio and he and Jim Lauderdale and I talked and sang a few songs and basically had a grand old time of it. What a couple of great guys and also, by the way brilliant musicians and singers.
I’m not sure yet when it will be aired but I’ll let y’all know (as they say) as soon as I do.
