Blue Highway on XM

Blue Highway at the XM nashville studio - Rob Ickes, Wayne Taylor, Jason Burleson, Kyle Cantrell of XM, Shawn Lane, Tim StaffordBlue Highway will be the featured guest on this week’s edition of Studio Special on XM Satellite Radio’s Bluegrass Junction. They join host Kyle Cantrell for some live music from their new CD, Through the Window of a Train, and discussion about the songs, all of which were written within the band.

The show will run six times over the next week, starting with the debut airing at 8:00 a.m. on Friday morning (3/28). Cantrell tells us that these multiple airings are placed in very different time slots to offer convenient opportunities for folks in the various time zones – and on different work/listening schedules.

Here’s the run down (all times EDT).

Friday (3/28) – 8:00 a.m.
Saturday (3/29) – 11:00 a.m.
Sunday (3/30) – 6:00 p.m.
Monday (3/31) – 8:00 p.m.
Tuesday (4/1) – Midnight (technically Wednesday morning)
Thursday (4/3) – 3:00 p.m.

Not only is Blue Highway one of the finest live bands in bluegrass, they are also deft and thoughtful songwriters. Both the performance and the songwriting chat should be enlightening for serious fans and students of this music.
