Jim Lauderdale Plans Another Bluegrass CD

Singer-songwriter Jim Lauderdale will release another bluegrass album, The Bluegrass Diaries, on Sept. 18 on Yep Roc Records. The project follows last year’s Grammy-nominated Bluegrass. His 2002 album with Ralph Stanley, Lost in the Lonesome Pines, won a Grammy for best bluegrass album. Lauderdale’s future projects include collaborations with guitarist James Burton and Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, with both slated for release within the next nine months.
