New work of the lovely Emily Scott Robinson for Oh Boy Records!  Emily’s songwriting is often rich with compelling narrative, with lyrics and song structure mature, deep, and clever. Her beautiful voice further brings this out on her stunning new album, which was produced by Brandy Zdan .  Highly recommend giving her and her new album a spin! Shot on a rainy and warm Spring day in May 2022. <3

I never dreamed I'd start this war When I was young I was so innocent and sure I was afraid to be alone So I wrote every vow of loyalty in stone But is this the life I want for my own daughter? Just tryin' to keep her head about the water? What if desire is a gift and not a sin? What if this could be the start and not the end?
I'm on the edge of somethin' wild On the edge of somethin' free On the edge of somethin' reckless I get down on my knees If you don't recognize me When I come back around It's cause all the things I thought I'd be I let em all burn to the ground

Grand Ole Opry Faces Backlash after Having Morgan Wallen on Stage
- “I’m real sad for a lot of my friends today,” Jason Isbell says
Less than a year after becoming a country-music pariah when he was caught on tape spewing the n-word, Morgan Wallen made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry.
The backlash from country’s anti-racist contingent was swift, though Margo Price lamented those who were “showing their ass today.”
“We cannot keep singing ‘Will the Circle be Unbroken’ and pretending like glossing over the white supremacist history of country music is enough,” Emily Scott Robinson tweeted at the Opry.
“It is not enough. If you want to be part of true progress in this space, consider what it means to invite Morgan Wallen on stage with no accountability about his personally harmful and racist actions and no larger dialogue about racism in country music.”
The controversial invite came Jan. 8, 55 years and one day after Charley Pride became the first black solo artist to appear on the Opry stage. Black Opry founder Holly G declared in an open letter she “no longer (has) any interest in participating with the Opry in any capacity unless there is some clear form of accountability and structural change.”
“A stage that was once a dream destination for many black artists has now cemented itself as one of the many Nashville stages on which we know we are not respected,” G wrote.
Yasmin Williams called the Opry’s move “disappointing but hardly surprising.
“The Opry has only ever had two black members in its 100-plus-year history,” she tweeted. “Stop expecting these institutions built on racism and exclusion to show up for black artists when they literally never have.”
Jason Isbell - who has tapped black, female Americana artists to open his shows and recently donated all proceeds from Wallen’s cover of his “Cover Me Up” to the Nashville NAACP - was similarly displeased.
“You had a choice - either upset one guy and his ‘team,’ or break the hearts of a legion of aspiring black country artists,” he tweeted at the Opry. “You chose wrong and I’m real sad for a lot of my friends today. Not surprised though. Just sad.”

Emily Scott Robinson - When It Don't Come Easy (Patty Griffin Cover) 
I’ll let the singer say it all:
“This Patty Griffin song feels like a beacon of light in the darkest of nights. "When It Don't Come Easy" has always stuck with me since I first heard it on a burned CD driving on a dark country road on a Tennessee night. I've been a Patty Griffin fan for nearly 20 years. Her music is always raw, reaching, and powerful to me. For me, this song is a life preserver cast out into dark and choppy waters to anyone you love who needs your help. We are living through the darkest times I have ever seen in my life, especially for women and minorities. As I watch healthcare and reproductive freedom under threat throughout the United States, I am terrified for our safety and freedom. I want to help fight for the human right to make empowered, whole and healthy decisions for our bodies, souls, and lives. This song "When It Don't Come Easy" feels piercingly true right now in these troubled times. It's an anthem for me.”
And a portion of the proceeds goes to support-abortion-funds. It’s a sweet cover, too.

Erm, Midnight Mass John x Millie crew: This song you guys! THIS. SONG.
What is there in Little Rock at the Hilton Double Tree Just a woman far from home a thousand miles out to sea She walks over to the window, pulls the curtain shut Pours three fingers of whiskey in a flimsy plastic cup Sits down on the bedspread, takes off her wedding ring If she does something dark enough he might just set her free It’s her mother’s mother’s diamond in a shining golden band Another woman who spent most her life loving the wrong man If trouble comes a’ lookin’ she won’t be hard to find She’s sitting in the hotel bar on her second glass of wine She put a pretty dress on, wiped the tears out of her eyes And if trouble comes a’ lookin’ she won’t be hard to find Just two floors down is Brother John from Our Lady of Grace He is older now but handsome still with such a lonely face He picked a hotel off the Interstate where even God won’t find him Runs his fingers through the rosary and locks the door behind him How was Christ so perfect, how on earth did he resist The perfume on a woman’s neck, the softness of her lips He burned and burned for years with the fire of devotion But some things are impossible to stop once they’re in motion If trouble comes a’ lookin’ he won’t be hard to find He’s sitting in the hotel bar on his second glass of wine Across the empty room he glances up to meet her eyes And if trouble comes a’ lookin’ he won’t be hard to find           At quarter til the bartender will make the final call She’ll slip down off her stool and sway slowly down the hall And he’ll kiss her like she always wanted, back against the wall And she’ll step out of her dress looking like Eve before the fall If trouble comes a’ lookin’ they won’t be hard to find They’re tangled in each other’s arms in room 229 They’ve never strayed this far into the shadows of the night And if trouble comes a’ lookin’ they won’t be hard to find Not every infidelity is bound to end in shame She’ll smile one month later when a letter bears his name Brother John has gone to France and Italy to travel Where all of his ideas of God will happily unravel
Someone needs to write a fic, stat. Just sayin’. ;)

Third - and Final - Installment of “Big Old Goofy World: The Story of Oh Boy Records” Looks at Post-Prine Future
The final installment of “Big Old Goofy World: The Story of Oh Boy Records” looks at the label’s future in a post-John Prine environment.
And like the post-Prine world itself, it’s bleaker that way.
Not Oh Boy - it’ll be OK; the fans will make sure of that, Prine’s surviving family members and employees are sure. But the third episode of the three-part, 40th-anniversary mini-doc feels like an ad; whereas, the previous episodes felt like celebrations.
Still, there are some lovely vignettes, such as when Eileen Tilson recalls how Prine insisted on receiving a physical paycheck from the record label he owned. He’d then go to the bank lobby - never the drive-thru - and chat with the tellers.
“He liked to tell people he was the president of Oh Boy Records - all the time,” she says.
The 18-minute segment talks about building on Prine’s legacy with a stable of artists he signed - Kelsey Waldon, Tré Burt, Arlo McKinley, et. al - and Oh Boy’s first post-Prine signee, Emily Scott Robinson.
“I feel like I got the golden ticket - I won the lottery,” she said.
