Todd Snider to Release Jerry Jeff Walker Tribute Album

Todd Snider will release Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker, as a tribute to the country singer/songwriter on April 24. Produced by the legendary Don Was (Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones), the album features special guests including Kix Brooks of Brooks and Dunn, country singer Elizabeth Cook, and bassist Amy LaVere. See below for the full tracklisting.

“I’ve always hoped I’d stay around long enough to get to make a record of Jerry Jeff Walker songs,” Snider says. “He’s the guy I saw at 19 and decided to try to be like. His are the first songs I learned…We just went into a studio and played about 30 of Jerry Jeff’s songs and let the performances dictate what songs would make it,” Snider says, adding, “I could’ve done 30 more.”

The release comes as the follow-up to Snider’s new album Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables (read our review here).
