My next music review for WYCE 88.1FM is on Railroad Earth

Featuring 9 tracks blending elements of country rock with bluegrass, the album occupies the territory somewhere between Nickel Creek and Steve Earl. Railroad Earth’s press kit for the album mentions the movie “The Last Waltz” by The Band as a huge source of inspiration for their collective song writing strategy.
