May 2009, Rosebud News
Two-time Grammy winner Jim Lauderdale is featured on Elvis Costello's new disc, Secret, Profane & Sugarcane, to be released June 2, 2009. Elvis writes, "I've admired Jim Lauderdale's recordings for a good while... Jim is singing close vocal harmony on every song [on] this record. He's mastered that art of singing the second line without ever pulling attention from the narrator of the tale... It's transparent and essential at the same time... As fine a singer and songwriter as he is on his own recordings, I can't say enough about the tone and timbre that he adds to mine on every line he hits." Jim will become a member of Elvis Costello & The Sugarcanes for their June tour dates including appearances June 4 on the Late Show with David Letterman and June 23 on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. In September, Jim hosts the 2009 Americana Honors & Awards for the 7th time in the 8-year history of the awards, which take place at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
