Jim Lauderdale Announces ‘When Carolina Comes Home Again’ Album

Grammy Award-winning American music icon Jim Lauderdale announced today (Jan. 10) that he will release his 33rd album, When Carolina Comes Home Again, March 6 on Yep Roc Records. The leading single, “As A Sign,” is now available at all digital platforms.

Recorded at Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville, North Carolina, the 13-track album pays homage to his native state and features instrumental accompaniment from various members of North Carolina-based acts, including Balsam Range, Cane Mill Road, Hank Pattie & the Current, John Stickley, Songs From The Road Band, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Town Mountain; as well as Matt Pruett (banjo); Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw (fiddle); Aaron Ramsey (mandolin); Nick Dauphinais and Presley Barker on guitars.

“North Carolina has such a long and important heritage in bluegrass music,” Lauderdale says. “Since it’s where I’m originally from and where I started playing bluegrass, it seemed right to go back to my roots in bluegrass there and collaborate with musicians in that area. There’s just something in the atmosphere there. Hearing bluegrass in different areas and settings in North Carolina, the music is just there in the air. The first bluegrass festival I ever went to was Union Grove when I was 14, and it blew my mind. The music got into my bones, and I just had to get a banjo.”

Lauderdale also announced that he will continue his From Another World tour with a string of U.S. dates across the West Coast in May, before embarking on a tour in support of When Carolina Comes Home Again.
