Americana tribal leader Jim Lauderdale has signed on to be a semi-regular host of the much-talked-about Nashville music scene showcase, Music City Roots, Live from the Loveless Café. The show will regularly feature other guest hosts, due to Jim’s extensive touring and hosting commitments, but everyone involved agreed that no one represented the heart and soul of the movement like Lauderdale. Jim is also the regular monthly host of Tennessee Shines, a monthly show airing on Knoxville’s pioneer non-profit station WDVX.
All guest hosts on Music City Roots will be invited to perform and lead the closing segment of the show, aptly entitled “The Loveless Jam”. Lauderdale is joined by WSM cult-icon Eddie Stubbs as announcer, and author/journalist Craig Havighurst, who will conduct interviews, and oversee the journalistic elements of the show.
