Patty Loveless Plans Mountain Soul II for September Release

Patty Loveless will release another volume of bluegrass-inspired music, Mountain Soul II, on Sept. 29 on Saguaro Road Records. She released the original Mountain Soul in 2001. Guests on the new project include Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Carl Jackson, Del McCoury, Ronnie McCoury, Jon Randall and steel guitarist Al Perkins. Emory Gordy Jr., her husband, is producing the sessions. “It’s Appalachian, bluegrass and country combined,” Loveless said. “You should never try to duplicate something like Mountain Soul. What you should do is enhance. So this is like a continuation.” Last year, Loveless released an album of country covers, Sleepless Nights, on Saguaro Road.
