The Gabe Dixon Band To Release Self-Titled Album Aug. 26

The Gabe Dixon Band
Who turns down a personal offer to play keyboard on Paul McCartney's world tour? Gabe Dixon did, and it was probably the best decision of his life. Dixon respectfully turned McCartney down to focus his energies on his band's then-yet-to-be-released album.

The first incarnation of The Gabe Dixon Band was born nine years ago as a jam band with heavy jazz influences, but after a bout of cutbacks and regime changes at their original label, the band members had a collective epiphany and decided to reinvent themselves as a song-based trio. A reviewer for The Nashville Tennessean, Dixon's hom...

Miranda Lambert
"My songs talk about real things," says Miranda Lambert. "Things that I've been through or I've witnessed through my friends and family - even my parents' private investigation business. If I feel it, I can sing it and make anyone believe it."

Out Loud (Mindy Smith/Hillary Lindsay)

"Hillary, she's a hit-maker. When we got together, I had this guitar lick, she started to sing a melody over it, and we started writing this song.

I'm not just talking about war or poverty. I'm talking about treating each other with respect. I'm not trying to wave any kind of flag. It's not a political song … but it's not not a political song either."
