      At any given time, you’re likely to find Jim Lauderdale making music, whether he’s laying down a new track in the studio or working through a spontaneous melody at his home in Nashville. And if he’s not actively crafting new music, he’s certainly thinking about it. “It’s a constant challenge to try to keep making better and better records, write better and better songs. I still always feel like I’m a developing artist,” he says. This may be a surprising sentiment from a man who’s won two Grammys and 14 AMAs, released 34 full-length albums, and taken home the Americana Music Association’s coveted Wagonmaster Award. But forthcoming album Game Changer is convincing evidence that the North Carolina native is only continuing to hone his craft.

      He’s been a vital part of the country music ecosystem since 1991, when he released his debut album and began penning songs for an impressively long roster of country music greats. “When I was a teenager wanting to be a bluegrass banjo player, I never would have imagined that I would get to work with people like Ralph Stanley, Robert Hunter, Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams and John Oates ,” he muses. “Getting to work with them inspires me greatly to this day, and I know it always will.”

      Jim has penned songs for a variety of artists, including George Strait (9 total), Blake Shelton, Patty Loveless, Lee Ann Wommack, Vince Gill, Mark Chestnutt, Elvis Costello, The Chicks and Gary Allen. He’s collaborated with Dr. Ralph Stanley, Robert Hunter, North Mississippi All-Stars, Nick Lowe, legendary mandolin master Roland White and fellow Nashville songwriting titan Buddy Miller, with whom he’s cohosted The Buddy & Jim Radio Show, broadcast on Sirius XM Outlaw Country since 2012.
