Episode 177: This year marks the 30th anniversary of Jim Lauderdale's solo debut album Planet Of Love, but he was a veteran even then of the burgeoning alternative country music scenes in New York and Los Angeles. In his Nashville decades, he's been cherished as a leader and spokesperson for Americana music, a very successful hit songwriter, a collaborator with giants and an artist who just kicks out incredible album after album. In this laid back conversation, Jim talks about how his first album came to be, how he pursued a long-running writing relationship with the legendary Robert Hunter and his new album Hope.
