Video: Civil Wars at the Americana Music Festival

The 2011 Americana Music Festival awards show will be aired on Austin City Limits beginning Nov. 19. Here’s one of the evening’s highlights, a riveting performance of “Barton Hollow” by the Civil Wars.

David Olney dons his “Boots”

OK, it’s the least likely music video ever, but the sight of David Olney surrounded by mini-skirted dancers while he sings a Nancy Sinatra hit is pretty irresistible.
Lee Hazelwood wrote “Boots,” so it’s not a stretch for Olney to channel Hazelwood’s rough-hewn voice here. It’s goofy and we like it.

In other Olney news, the fine singer-songwriter did an interesting interview with F. Daniel Kent.

An excerpt about Olney’s move to Nashville: “At the time the Outlaw country was what was going on. It was a pretty wide open scene. The guy who was the model for everyone was Guy Clark because he had gotten the record deal. He was this guy that you could run into. He seemed to be in the same business that you were in. Guy has done a lot of great things, but for me in the beginning he set such a decent and very high standard for what was a good song.”

Charlie Louvin’s final TV appearance

The Marty Stuart Show on RFD is always a hoot, a throwback to early country music television. Stuart and the Fabulous Superlatives are terrific players and they have a wonderful time.
The show that aired this week, though, was truly something special. It began goofily enough, with the theme from Bonanaza, complete with lyrics. But then Stuart introduced the legendary Charlie Louvin to perform the first of two songs. The show was taped on Dec. 2, 2010 and Louvin died 55 days later. His final song on the show was Tom T. Hall’s “Back When We Were Young.” It’s a powerful moment, and a joy to see Stuart’s obvious love and respect for the veteran performer.
