A legendary songwriter, artist and musician in Nashville’s Country, Bluegrass, and Americana circles, Jim Lauderdale will release his upcoming 26th project, I’m A Song, on July 1.
The 20-track album boasts guests Lee Ann Womack, Patty Loveless and Buddy Miller, as well as songwriting from co-writers Gary Allan, Bobby Bare, Odie Blackmon, Jimmy Ritchey, Elvis Costello, Robert Hunter and more.
Jim’s band on I’m A Song includes James Burton, Al Perkins, Kenny Vaughn, Dennis Crouch, Stuart Duncan, and John Oates.
Due to popular demand, “King of Broken Hearts,” Jim’s most requested tune is re-recorded for the first time since Planet of Love was released in 1991. “I wanted to do ‘King of Broken Hearts’ again since that album is out of print, and people keep asking for that song. That’s one that I do at just about every show as a tribute to Gram Parsons and George Jones,” Lauderdale says.
