This well cast and well directed national tour plays the Hollywood Pantages through November 25.

Hailing from Monkey's Eyebrow in Ballard County, Kentucky, Kelsey Waldon is certainly no stranger to the rural, workingman's world in which John Prine's songs come to life. Both artists are admired for their often candid, occasionally humorous view of normal, everyday life, so when it came time for Waldon to find a home for her songs, Prine and his long-independent Oh Boy Records welcomed her with open arms. Waldon has played shows with Prine before, but none as impactful as their appearance on last night's Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN.

Monkey's Eyebrow, KY, native Kelsey Waldon has announced the release of her new full-length album White NoiseWhite Lines, her first with Oh Boy Records, for October 4th. With White NoiseWhite Lines,Waldon captures the rugged country sound of her touring band without sacrificing the intimacy of her songwriting. Because of that approach, the record feels immediate, somewhere between a concert and a conversation. Co-produced by Waldon and Dan Knobler, the collection opens with a confident anthem, “Anyhow,” which finds the Nashville-based songwriter forging ahead after some frustrating setbacks. Garden & Gun praised the song as “a fitting first taste of an album that should firmly establish Waldon as one of classic country's rising torchbearers.” “Anyhow” and its accompanying video are available today. White NoiseWhite Linescan be digitally pre-ordered here. Visit https:www.ohboy.comkelsey-waldon to snag the pre-order bundle which includes digital, cd, and vinyl—plus a limited edition 7” vinyl of duets from Prine and Waldon.

Kelsey Waldon is no stranger to calling it as she sees it. Over the years, her songs have been honest observations of real-life, in the trenches issues; small-town woes, prescription drug addiction, and all manners of heartbreak have been on Waldon's chopping block.  Yesterday, Nylon premiered what may be Waldon's most matter-of-fact, hitting close to home composition to date, “Sunday's Children.” 'Essentially, that tune was inspired by how I felt about people using religion and God in the name of hate,' Waldon told Nylon. 'I grew up in the Southern Baptist church, and I was really discouraged to hear so many people instill fear in the hearts of people, that just because somebody isn't like them, they would be afraid of this person.' “Sunday's Children” comes as the second single fromWhite Noise/White Lines following the previously released “Anyhow,” whichGarden & Gun called a “fitting first taste of an album that should firmly establish Waldon as one of classic country's rising torchbearers.” White Noise/White Lines will be released October 4th on John Prine's Oh Boy Records.

Does everyone love Buddy Holly? The Brits certainly do. Alan Janes' BUDDY: THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY opened on the West End in London in 1989 and ran for eight years the first time, toured the United Kingdom over 25 years, and was revived for a year on the West End in 2007, so there's been massive love for the show there for three decades. It's been here, too, as BUDDY opened on Broadway in 1990 and has kept going around America since then as well.
