Indiana music icon John Hiatt previews album with dobro master Jerry Douglas

John Hiatt, who grew up in Indianapolis near the intersection of 57th Street and Central Avenue, didn’t work in isolation during the pandemic.

Known for signature songs “Have a Little Faith in Me” and “Real Fine Love,” Hiatt will release a collaborative album with the Jerry Douglas Band this spring.

The album, titled “Leftover Feelings,” is scheduled for release May 21. The project’s first single, “All the Lilacs in Ohio,” arrived Wednesday. Douglas applies his unparalleled dobro guitar skills to the unplugged rendition of “Lilacs,” a song Hiatt originally recorded for his 2001 album “The Tiki Bar is Open.”

Hiatt, who received the Americana Music Association’s lifetime achievement award for songwriting in 2008 and became a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer the same year, dipped into his catalog for one other “Leftover Feelings” track. The song “Little Goodnight” first appeared as a B-side after Hiatt issued his “Perfectly Good Guitar” album in 1993.

Douglas, known for his work with Alison Krauss & Union Station, and his supporting cast joined Hiatt at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio B to record “Leftover Feelings.” Presently operated by the non-profit Country Music Hall of Fame, RCA Studio B was the site of recordings sessions by Elvis Presley, the Everly Brothers and Chet Atkins.

“Leftover Feelings” will be Hiatt’s first studio recording since 2018’s “The Eclipse Sessions.” His resume includes many compositions that other artists popularized, including Bonnie Raitt’s cover of Hiatt’s “Thing Called Love” and the Jeff Healey Band’s rendition of “Angel Eyes.”

“Leftover Feelings” is available for pre-order at newwestrecords.com.

Week 1 guitar is a Washburn Electric-Acoustic Cutaway

This is an outstanding Dreadnought Cutaway acoustic guitar, with a Premium Solid Sitka Spruce top. The Cathedral Peaked Scalloped-X bracing is normally featured in guitars worth far more, so you’ll hear superior tone that improves with age. Mahogany body and neck, with a cutaway for easy access to the uppermost frets.

This great Washburn is ready to plug in for performance or recording, with built in pickup system and onboard tuner. The Fishman Preamp provides the most natural amplified acoustic tone, with volume, bass and treble controls and a phase switch for feedback control.

Other outstanding features include a two-way truss rod, “Nu-Bone” Synthetic Bone nut and compensated saddle for precise intonation, 1 11/16” Nut-width for playing comfort, and a custom Setup and calibration by famed Guitarworks Luthier and Blooming native Deric Rush!

Put it all together with a custom strap and Guitarworks Gig Bag case and it’s a package value over $800! It’s a guitar any Pro would be proud to take to stage
or studio-  and it’s yours to win from the One and Only Guitarworks in Greenwood—the place to Take Your Pick!

Week 2 guitar is a Takamine GD-20 Acoustic Guitar

Here’s the classic Dreadnought body style with mahogany back and a Solid cedar top with Quartersawn X-bracing. The Takamine GD20 resonates with loud, rich, bold tone and classic look you expect from a Dreadnought guitar, with impressive ease of playability Takamine is known for!

Takamine has been designing and building acoustic guitars for 50 years, at the foot of Japan’s Takamine mountains, with quality and value as their guiding principles. Takamine uses only the finest tonewoods, construction techniques, and is a world leader in technical guitar building innovations.

That’s why for decades Takamine Guitars have been the most widely played guitars on the planet. They’re constantly seen in the hands of music’s biggest stars – across all genres of music – both in studio and on stage!

And it’s yours to win from the One and Only Guitarworks in Greenwood—the place to Take Your Pick!

Week 3 – The G&L Tribute “Doheny” Guitar

The G&L Doheny is the evolution of the offset body Leo Fender design, inspired by the classic surf sound born in Southern California.

Doheny takes the bolt-on offset-body into new sonic territory with newly developed Magnetic Field Design™ jazz pickups, the first on any production G&L. So what’s it like? The sound is rich in harmonics yet surprisingly full – echoes of the 60’s with more output and range for today’s music.

Add Leo’s Dual-Fulcrum vibrato, allowing up and down-bend with unsurpassed stability, and you have Pro-level workhorse guitar that will be different from any other guitar in your arsenal- the results are just astounding! Weather you’re a gigging pro or a bedroom guitarist, on-stage or in-studio, you’ll love The G&L Doheny. It’s a true joy to play.

You can win this one- Finished in miles-deep Piano Black, including a custom Guitarworks gig bag- a package retail value over $900, presented by your friends at the One and Only Guitarworks in Greenwood- the place to Take Your Pick!.

Indiana Children's Wish Fund

Portions of the proceeds will be donated to the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund. Their mission is to put smiles on the faces of Indiana children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness by making a dream come true. Their children have had to fight battles that children should not have to fight. These children go through treatments that make them sick for days on end. They forget what childhood is all about. Granting their wish gives these brave children something to look forward to and helps build strength and hope for their futures. Every child has the right to be loved, nurtured and to reach for a dream.

WTTS Remembers

Listen to an encore presentation of WTTS Remebers on  Thursday, January 4 at 7pm on 92-3 WTTS and on our live stream

Nothing evokes passion and emotion like music, especially music that has been a part of the soundtrack of our lives. These songs that we love from our favorite artists are like snapshots in our family photo album. Each one provides clues to our history, our tragedies, our triumphs and our loves. Music bonds us as a community. And when one of the contributors to our life’s soundtrack dies, we lose a piece of ourselves, a friend who has been “through it all” with us. The heartbreak is shared and the feeling of our own mortality is real. This past year as we have experienced the loss of many in our musical family, I feel strengthened by our shared grief and expression of gratitude. I ask to find comfort together in the music they created for us and remember those times in our lives punctuated in song.

Here’s to a brand new year, brand new music and brand new memories.

Free Download Of The Week: Deer Tick

“I think a lot of my favorite artists have always done stuff like that,” Deer Tick front man John McCauley says from his home in Nashville, reflecting on his band’s love of unexpected mashups: tender lyrics layered over pi**ed off guitars; classical music flourishes delivered nearly naked and high. Deer Tick’s perfected it all, mostly as an outlier, revered by a legion of fans, respected by peers, but not part of any one scene. With their highly anticipated new project(s), two new albums released simultaneously titled Deer Tick Vol. 1 and Deer Tick Vol. 2, the crew from Rhode Island prove that their punk-roots rock has only gotten better with age. Download “Jumpstarting” off Deer Tick vol. 2 any time between August 14th, and August 20th and learn more about Deer Tick at their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

Free Download Of The Week: Ty Segall

Ty Segall will release his second self-titled album Friday. “‘Orange Color Queen’ is a love song for my girlfriend, Denée,” Segall says. “I’ve written her many, but I think this is my favorite. I travel around the world for a living and have developed a slight fear of flying. She’s one of the things that makes it better for me to travel. Especially when she is with me. She has orange hair, and is my orange color queen. I rarely write songs like this, because it is so easy to sound disingenuous, but I think this one is pretty good.” Download “Orange Color Queen” off Ty Segall and learn more about Ty Segall at his Official Website, “Like” him on Facebook and follow him on Twitter.

WTTS Remembers -2016

Nothing evokes passion and emotion like music, especially music that has been a part of the soundtrack of our lives. These songs that we love from our favorite artists are like snapshots in our family photo album. Each one provides clues to our history, our tragedies, our triumphs and our loves. Music bonds us as a community. And when one of the contributors to our life’s soundtrack dies, we lose a piece of ourselves, a friend who has been “through it all” with us. The heartbreak is shared and the feeling of our own mortality is real. This past year as we have experienced the loss of many in our musical family, I feel strengthened by our shared grief and expression of gratitude. I ask to find comfort together in the music they created for us and remember those times in our lives punctuated in song.

Here’s to a brand new year, brand new music and brand new memories.
