While some of us are becoming one with our couch and Netflix accounts (and that’s OK!) some musicians are working up all kinds of ways to keep their skills sharp. Walker Lukens has stayed busy creating for his new “ADULTs Only” record subscription club where fans can sign up and get exclusive content created during this downtime. This month’s creation is an instrumental video album with loops and beats by Walker and visuals by friend and photographer Derek Beck. Aptly named Corona Don’t Touch My Baby, Walker will host a live stream event and benefit for Red River venue Cheer Up Charlies Sunday, May 24 to premiere the video album.
Steve Earle & The Dukes are set to release the latest album Ghosts of West Virginia, May 22 on New West Records. The album centers on the Upper Big Branch coal mine explosion that killed twenty-nine men in that state in 2010, making it one of the worst mining disasters in American history.
Join us for a live interview on KUTX’s Facebook or Youtube, Monday, May 18 at 1p (central) as KUTX host Jody Denberg spends some quality time with Steve Earle for KUTX at Home. Watch the full interview below.
KUTX host Jody Denberg goes in depth for KUTX at Home with Adrian Quesada on the GRAMMY’S, his many collaborations, and what it was like to work with Prince. Watch the full interview below.
The last time we visited with Patty Griffin was in March of 2019 at our SXSW broadcast KUTX Live at the Four Seasons. The singer-songwriter had just released her self-titled album and later went on to win a GRAMMY for Folk Album of the Year. Just a day after that SXSW performance, Patty sat down with host Jody Denberg and music journalist David Fricke to play an hour of her picks. Listen to that guest DJ session HERE.

We know it will be a minute before we can be live in Studio 1A once again. Until that time, we’ll be staying at home and checking in with our favorite musicians to see how they’re keeping busy during this weird time.
