About Jim LauderdaleJim'n'TDawg

Jim Lauderdale (pictured right with yours truly in a deep conversation) is a multiple Grammy® (2002 collaboration with Dr. Ralph Stanley and in 2007 for Bluegrass Diaries) and Americana Music Association Award-winning musician and one of the most respected artists working the Americana, Bluegrass and Country music communities today.

Jim Lauderdale has always stayed true to his North Carolina roots but is influenced from the experience of his travels.  He first immersed himself in the early country music scenes of both New York City and Los Angeles before breaking through in Nashville as a songwriter.  He has helped pave the way of the current Americana movement recording records and writing songs that cross genres from country, pop, roots, rock, soul and bluegrass.

Lauderdale, a master songwriter, has had his work recorded by artists such as Patty Loveless, George Jones, Shelby Lynne, Solomon Burke, The Dixie Chicks, Blake Shelton, Lee Ann Womack, Gary Allan, and George Strait, who has had numerous hits with Jim’s songs.  Lauderdale’s music has been featured regularly on the ABC hit show Nashville, and he appeared in the successful film Country Strong.

Jim is often called upon as a player and has toured with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Rhonda Vincent, Hot Tuna & Charlie Musselwhite and Elvis Costello. He also co-hosts a weekly radio show on SiriusXM with Buddy Miller called “The Buddy & Jim Show,” which NPR’s Fresh Air described as “…highly entertaining…”  Lauderdale is also the host of the popular Music City Roots each week in Nashville and Scenic City Roots monthly in Chattanooga, TN.

He has collaborated with legends like Ralph Stanley, Elvis Costello and Robert Hunter and is also a critically acclaimed solo artist with dozens of studio releases, including his latest effort, and arguably his finest, I’m A Song…
