Kentucky singer/songwriter Ian Noe recently released his debut album Between The Country, which was recorded at Nashville's RCA Studio A with the great Dave Cobb, who you know from his work with Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Colter Wall, and others, and if you like those artists, there's a very good chance you'll like Between The Country too. Cobb played guitar on it too, and it also features Adam Gardner (bass, organ piano), Chris Powell (drums, percussion) and Savannah Conley (backup vocals). The album sounds like a lost document from the late '60s/early '70s era of country/folk crossover -- it's gained lots of comparisons to John Prine and Nashville Skyline-era Bob Dylan (both of whom he cites as influences, along with Neil Young, Dwight Yoakam, Tom T. Hall, and others) -- but Cobb's production helps make it undeniably modern as well. If you haven't heard it yet, stream it below.

Ian is also set to embark on his first-ever headlining tour this September and October, including a NYC show on October 3 at Rockwood Music Hall (tickets). He also has some European shows with his hero John Prine and he's playing Prine's All The Best Fest in Punta Cana. All dates are listed below.
