Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 solo album from one-half of Grammy-winning Folk duo the Indigo Girls. Goodnight Tender integrates all of her influences in fresh, surprising ways and testifies to her range and virtuosity as an artist who is always game to follow a thread of melody into new and rugged territory. Goodnight Tender is an old school Southern music album that ranges from traditional Country and Honky Tonk to Gospel and Appalachian music. Amy recorded live to analog tape last spring at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, NC. The sessions included fiddle, banjo, dobro, pedal steel, guitar, mandolin, bass, and drums gathered round a few microphones to create an authentic, vintage sound. Ray convened a band of old school country players and invited some special guests that cut across genres, including: Justin Vernon, Heather McEntire (Mt. Moriah, Merge Records), members of MegaFaun and vocal appearances by Kelly Hogan and Susan Tedeschi.
