Amy Ray is going country, for an album! But it’s not really a stretch.
Ray, half of Grammy-winning songwriting folk-rock duo the Indigo Girls, has always been a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll. But her upcoming solo release, Goodnight Tender, on Ray’s own Decatur-based imprint, Daemon Records, will be a career first for Ray, as it’s a pure country music album.
Recorded last spring at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, N.C. with guests Justin Vernon, Heather McEntire (Mt. Moriah, Merge Records), members of Megafaun and vocal appearances by Kelly Hogan and Susan Tedeschi, this collection of 11 originals by Ray, along with a cover penned by McEntire, is scheduled for release on January 28, 2014 on Daemon Records.
Goodnight Tender marks a dramatic departure from Ray’s previous work, both as a solo artist and an Indigo Girl.  Along with a group of trusted artists and collaborators, Ray’s sessions included fiddle, banjo, dobro, pedal steel, guitar, mandolin, bass, and drums gathered ’round a few microphones to create an authentic, vintage sound.
