Random Weekend Post: Brandi Carlile & Stephen Bruton

Posted in Brandi Carlile, Stephen Bruton on January 30, 2010 by AmericanaPulse

Two videos today… with a related theme.

First is Brandi Carlile covering Willie Nelson’s “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” from something called The Interface. Brandi will play the Bijou Theatre in Knoxville February 10.

Next is one from the late singer/songwriter/producer Stephen Bruton. Stephen has received a lot of attention lately for his work on the Crazy Heart Soundtrack, and I’ve dedicated a couple of sets to him at WDVX lately. His good friend Alejandro Escovedo dedicated a song to him during a recent visit to the station, and that has left Stephen Bruton on my mind.

A listener sent me this video last night after I played a song from Crazy Heart. It’s a song Stephen wrote that became a hit for The Highwaymen… a group featuring Willie Nelson. This is Stephen’s version.

Thanks Bruce.
