Nashville, TN -- Bluegrass music fans will get a special treat this week when Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction re-airs Dave Adkins’ entertaining Track by Track interview with host Kyle Cantrell. Fans can tune in Wednesday, September 10 at 11:00 AM; Thursday, September 11 at 9:00 PM; Saturday, September 13 at 8:00 AM; and Sunday, September 14 at 12:00 PM (Eastern). The program features songs from Dave’s album Nothing To Lose album on Mountain Fever Records.
Take a one of a kind voice, a commanding stage presence, and a killer songwriter who can conjur up the long lonesome feeling of bluegrass music with a stealth and hearty vocal like no other and you're quick to understand that Dave Akins is a rarity. He showcases these qualities and more with power on his solo release Nothing to Lose.
Nothing To Lose and the title track both appear on Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction's Most Played Albums and Most Played Tracks chart for August 2014. The album was produced by Dave Adkins and Edgar Loudermilk who are now on tour as Adkins & Loudermilk. Their busy tour schedule includes the following performances, but fans can check out their complete tour schedule at AdkinsLoudermilk.com and join them on Facebook and Twitter.
So, what better title for a song. “Through this song I get to share my favorite expression and give a nod to some of my Bluegrass heroes,” says Adkins. “It’s a song about not trying to imitate them but hopefully paying tribute to them with my own flavor and style. This song expresses my love of Bluegrass music and my desire to try to make the masters proud while keeping the genre alive.”
Other favorites on the album include “Don’t Pray That Way,” a song that was a true labor of love for Adkins. “This song is about faith and courage inspired by someone that I grew up with in my church. I hope that it serves as a tribute to her selflessness and love of others,” he says.
On “Pretty Little Liar,” Adkins teams up with Edgar Loudermilk. “This song started as an idea I had and shared with Edgar,” he says. From there it took on a life all its own. It has a beautiful soothing melody with a sinister twist in the end.”
