Muddy Magnolias, the Nashville duo of Kallie North and Jessy Wilson, will release their debut album, Broken People, on Oct. 14 via Third Generation Records.

Produced by Rick Beato (with additional production by Mario Marchetti and Butch Walker), the album was recorded in Atlanta and Nashville in late spring 2016.  John Legend provides piano and vocals on the closing track, “Leave It to the Sky.”

The music video for the lead single “Brother, What Happened?” premiered on NPR on Tuesday (Aug. 2).

Muddy Magnolias albumNorth has roots in southeast Texas and the Mississippi Delta, while Wilson was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. They met in 2013.

North said, “The first day we wrote together, there wasn’t much thought that we were blending genres and worlds. That never came up. It was just natural. Ultimately, this album is a result of an unlikely friendship and is a testament to what can happen when you diversify your relationships.”

Wilson adds, “It’s about getting out of your comfort zone and being rewarded with a great friendship. We’ve both felt the power of that.”

The band was formerly signed to I.R.S. Nashville. They will perform at Mercury Lounge in New York City on Aug. 23. They are co-managed by Clay Bradley of Third Generation Entertainment and Coran Capshaw of Red Light Entertainment. They are represented by Scott Clayton at CAA.
