Details and Video Coming Soon!

Music City Roots and Vietti Vinyl  announce the release of Roots Moments: Special Live Cuts From Season One in a limited edition, double LP set.

Already released on CD and iTunes download by Nashville’s Compass Records, this anthology is known as an enthralling sonic document of the inaugural season of Nashville’s admired roots/Americana radio show.

Now, in partnership with anchor Music City Roots sponsor Vietti Chili, the 11-song collection is being released in high style, with brown speckled vinyl, laser etched art on side four, bonus photos and expanded liner notes.

Later this week, a crew from Music City Roots and Vietti will head over to Nashville’s legendary United Record Pressing plant to document on film and in photos the one-time-only pressing of 500 copies of the album. A short video will be posted soon thereafter, bringing the magic of this little-understood analog process to our fans.

Like the show itself, the album begins with a solo performance by musical host Jim Lauderdale, the Grammy Award winning songwriter and artist. What follows feels like an unbroken experience, with songs by 18 South, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Nanci Griffith, Miss Tess and the Bon Ton Parade, Scott Miller, Caitlin Rose, Charlie Louvin, The Black Lillies and Mike Farris with the McCrary Sisters.

The final cut is one of the greatest-ever Loveless Jams, the show-closing ensemble number named for the show’s host venue, the Loveless Cafe Barn. Here, iconic bluegrass musician Sam Bush leads “Up On Cripple Creek” with Lauderdale, Farris and more.

Music City Roots and Vietti Vinyl, along with the fabulous Vietti Chili Girl Aly Sutton, will be spreading the word about the label mail-in giveaway and this exciting souvenir recording over the next few months until all 500 albums wind up in the hands of music and chili fans around the nation.

The Nashville Scene recently named the Loveless Barn and the show as Nashville’s Best New Roots Music Venue, “akin to what the Opry must have been like 60 years ago.” The program has also established itself as a trusted curator for excellence in Americana music, with appearances by Emmylou Harris, Sam Bush, Mike Farris, Ricky Skaggs, Mountain Heart, Cherryholmes, Dex Romweber, Roger McGuinn and many more. Roots has become a trusted brand partner that has done everything in its power to extol its valued sponsors, including Nissan, Vietti Chili, Ascend Federal Credit Union, Star 129 Diamond and The Nature Conservancy.
