In case you didn't hear us yelling it from the rooftops, Lydia Loveless performed on CBS This Morning today. If you didn't wake up in time, here are videos of all three songs! LL and her trusty band played new tracks "Same to You," "Longer," and "Out on Love." And you guessed it, the performances were tremendous.
This Saturday August 20th Lydia Loveless and her band will melt your TV screens on CBS This Morning! Saturday morning cartoons will have to take a backseat. She'll be performing songs from her album Real, which comes out this Friday! It's a Loveless weekend!
And yes, it's ok to put whiskey in your cereal when you tune in.
Ryan Adams, Nicki Bluhm, and The Infamous Stringdusters performed a breathtaking bluegrass-tinged version of "Oh My Sweet Carolina," from Ryan's 2000 Bloodshot album Heartbreaker, on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night!

It all...Read more

Don't roll those Bloodshot eyes at me...

*Double-take* Was that Luke Winslow-King performing at the end of the new NCIS episode on CBS last night? Why, yes; yes it was.
Luke performed an original piece to close out the show as the crime team kicked back in a park in New Orleans...probably looking for meddling musicians up to no good.
The former White Stripes frontman has called upon our very own pedal steel playing, Danish singer/songwriter Maggie Bjorklund to join him on his first-ever solo headlining tour. The backing spot has thus far brought her in front of sold-out audiences in Nashville, Chattanooga, and onto the stage of Saturday Night Live.

Her song "How Many Women" from her wicked debut album Indestructible Machine will be featured on Fox TV's show Alcatraz on Monday, January 16th. 9pm eastern, 8pm central.
They tell us it'll be the "background music in the gun shop." Sounds promising!

Usually the artists on Bloodshot toil away in obscurity. We like it that way, mostly. Every once in a while, though, odd confluences in the ionsphere occur and popular culture weirdly or circuitously takes notice of us.
Last night was one such occurance when American Idol met Bloodshot and many heads were scratched. It seems that a contestant busted out "Come...Read more
