Carl Anderson "Silver Lining"

While we all have been busy doing other stuff, Music Fog has been quietly chugging along, and we have recently attained some important milestones. One of the most amazing is that we hit the 50 MILLION mark for views of our videos on YouTube. I was speaking to a summer camp for college bound teens going on at MTSU last week, and I got a chance to talk about how Music Fog was founded, and how it benefited from the burgeoning social networks when we started in 2009. I can’t stress strongly enough how important having access to an audience is for what we do. It has been amazing to catch this wave and to keep riding it. Thanks for all the views and all the support. We have over 60,000 YouTube subscribers, and Music Fog is now on track to have our first 10 million view year! Thanks to all the artists for sharing their music with us. We couldn't do it without you!

Today’s video comes from Carl Anderson, the Virginia native now living in Nashville. He is working on a new album, and has been playing a bunch with Sam Wilson from Sons of Bill, and Schuyler Fisk in a project called Me And My Brother. We have a cool old school throw-back vibe tune for you today that Music Fog filmed at 3rd & Lindsley Backstage in January of 2016. Enjoy “Silver Lining,” from the album Risk of Loss, and thanks for the ongoing support!

Waylon Payne "Santa Ana Winds"

Bonnaroo 2017 is now a memory. Bonnaroo, and road crewing, when we were all at XM Satellite Radio played such a huge part in Music Fog even existing at all. We loved being on the bus together, building something out of nothing. It gets the adrenaline cranking, living by one’s wits and performing in extreme circumstances. Kinda like those reality TV competitions. We thought there should be a show to capture the back story of what we encountered on the road. That includes the magic moments, having some of the best artists in the world come up on our bus and perform in an intimate setting. Good times, indeed. I was at this year's Bonnaroo to broadcast live, Saturday and Sunday afternoon, on my new radio station, WMOT. And then we carried The Bluegrass Situation’s Super Roots Jam with Ede Helms and friends, including Margo Price, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Lillie Mae, Greensky Bluegrass, The River Whyless, Baskery, and more. By the way, you can listen to my new radio station at 89.5 FM in Middle Tennessee, on the app (iPhone/iPad or Android)at or

There was another bus trip during SXSW© several years back, in the XM days, when we had Waylon Payne aboard. We drove him from a Willie Nelson concert at The Backyard in Austin, to the Saxon Pub, to a waiting Stephen Bruton. Stephen passed a few years ago, and I miss him mightily! Fellow travelers all.

Waylon has been living in Nashville for a while now. He has been working on a new album with Frank Liddell producing, and the big news is that it will see light of day soon. Music Fog captured Waylon doing this song at Nashville's 3rd & Lindsley Backstage in January, 2016. Here is the Music Fog edition of “Santa Ana Winds,” a song of longing and yearning, and of the Santa Ana’s which blow hot in the summer.
