Alt-country vets Son Volt will release their new album, Union, on March 29. Frontman Jay Farrar says the album began as a political statement but he ended up interspersing the more fiery material with songs about the "power of love, time and music that sustains us."
Willie Nelson, Margo Price, Son Volt, John Doe of X, Cowboy Junkies and more sets will stream live at this weekend's Stagecoach (the mostly-country music festival happening in the same location as Coachella).
Stagecoach takes place April 28 - 30 at Empire Polo Club grounds in Indio, CA (aka same location as Coachella) with Willie Nelson, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Zombies, Son Volt, Margo Price, Cyndi Lauper, Los Lobos & more.
The country music festival also features Son Volt, Justin Townes Earle, .38 Special, Nikki Lane, Robert Ellis, Tommy James and the Shondells, Los Lobos, Cowboy Junkies, The Long Ryders, The Sadies, and more.
2015 marks the 20th anniversary of Son Volt's debut album, Trace. In celebration, Rhino will be releasing a deluxe edition CD featuring remastered original tracks, demos, an 18-track 1996 live performance from NYC's The Bottom Line and liner notes from No Depression's Peter Blackstock…
