Kurt Wagner & Cortney Tidwell present KORT

[ 16 ] October 3, 2010 |

From the City Slang blog:

Release date: October 18, 2010 (Europe/UK)

Born of a common love for their city and its traditions, this long-awaited collaboration from City Slang mainstays Kurt Wagner (Lambchop) and Cortney Tidwell seeks to portray their vision of Nashville through the music for which it is famous. Like Nashville, and indeed like country music itself, ‘Invariable Heartache’ draws upon the past but looks forward to the future, shining a gentle light on Kurt and Cortney’s romance with the city, its story and the universal truths that these and its songs represent. Described by Kurt as ‘not so much a replication, but more of a study in reclamation’, this labour of love seeks to strip away the cliché and glossy kitsch which so often mask the pure simplistic beauty of traditional Nashville country music.

Kurt Wagner, Cortney Tidwell and their band will be bringing their Nashville across the pond this autumn, with a European tour spanning the following cities:
