Nikki Lane to Release New Album "All or Nothin'"

Nikki Lane has announced May 6th as the release date of her second album, “Nothin’ to Lose.” Offering up traditional-leaning country undercut with a strong dose of rebellion, Lane fits right in with New West labelmates Steve Earle and The Whigs. Hearing her purr “It’s always the right time to do the wrong thing,” on her single “Right Time” is enough to want to be in on the heist. Lane is currently out raising hell on tour with the Whigs and Old 97’s. -Terra James-Jura

   

Soundland Announces 2012 Lineup

It seems as if "short but sweet" is Next Big Nashville's state of mind these days. Last year, the event's name was shortened to simply "Soundland," and this year the Nashville festival has been condensed to just one day of music. A self-described "one-day outdoor extravaganza," Soundland has a new home on the Riverfront Park lawn (which is such an ace venue in October, good choice) and the 2012 lineup features some local acts as well as some My Morning Jackets and some Young the Giants.

Local favorites such as Jonny Corndawg, Kopecky Family Band, and PUJOL are just a few of the supporting acts on the event's roster, but if the highlights aren't enticing enough, we have the full initial lineup here, too:

 

My Morning Jacket 
Young the Giant 
Divine Fits 
JD McPherson 
Jonny Corndawg 
Kopecky Family Band 
The Weeks 
Night Beds 
Wild Cub 
Kansas Bible Company 
Mystery Twins 
Nikki Lane 
PUJOL

 

Soundland takes place on October 6th. Tickets are on sale now.
