The Chicago insurgent country band The Blacks
had a bitter break-up in 2000. Sure, they got together for a show celebrating the anniversary of their label, Bloodshot Records
. But a lasting reunion seemed unlikely. Now time has erased their differences. The result is a new collection of songs available as a digital download and an online documentary. Band members Danny Black and Nora O'Connor talk about their new projects and about their 10-year hiatus. Danny Black says the new song titled, Ten Years
, doesn't have as obvious a connection as it seems.
