Jim Lauderdale: Time Flies

Americana Master, Jim Lauderdale has been a Nashville performer and songwriter for over 30 years, releasing dozens of solo albums and writing for folks like Patti Loveless, Vince Gill and George Strait. You'd forgive him if he wanted to take it easy after winning the lifetime achievement award from the Americana Music Association, but instead Jim's releasing TWO albums this year, that serve as bookends for his career: A new studio album called Time Flies, and a collection of songs Jim recorded with his buddy and amazing mandolin player, Roland White way back in 1979. The tapes for "Jim Lauderdale and Roland White" were lost for almost 40 years, but Jim will tell us how they saw the light of day and performs live on World Cafe.
