Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale are both musical icons on their own. But when they decided to collaborate on an album together in 2012, their friendship trumped their iconic statuses. Buddy and Jim have been close for years, collaborating on a weekly satellite radio show where they play some of their favorite tunes and interview other friends and musicians. So an album together made perfect sense, and the results make perfect sense as well.
Buddy and Jim were kind enough to allow the cameras of The Emery Sessions to capture some of that collaboration during a recent visit to Cincinnati.
The Emery Sessions crew, led by photographer turned one-shot video director Michael Wilson, were on hand for this amazing rendition of ‘It Hurts Me’, a song from the Buddy and Jim album. The song itself was written by Buddy’s wife Julie and features Fats Kaplin on fiddle, who has been most recently working with Jack White, Marco Giovino providing hand percussion (Marco also provides percussion for Robert Plant’s Band Of Joy) and Jay Weaver, a member of Dolly Parton’s band, on bass.
It’s a fantastic song in the fantastic setting that is the Emery, and I’m told they recorded the song without amplification of any kind. Enjoy these sounds of these two friends and icons performing in an iconic space.
