Good music from Nashville

Good music from Nashville*: Even if you don’t know what a dobro is, you’ll enjoy this NPR Weekend Edition interview with Jerry Douglas, the dobro-virtuoso. Also, if you’re an Alison Krauss fan, be sure to click on the stream of her funkadelic cover of L.T.D.’s “Back in Love Again (iTunes Link)” off Douglas’ new CD, Best Kept Secret.

*For the next week or so, I’ll be posting some short items about Nashville music that is good but not like the commercial suburban country being featured in New York City this week (although Jerry Douglas will be in New York). It’s music you won’t hear on “the mainstream radio machine,” as my favorite podcaster, Candace Corrigan calls it.
