My Morning Jacket to Appear on CBS Sunday Morning
My Morning Jacket will appear on CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood this weekend. The program will be broadcast on June 30, 2013 (9:00 AM, ET) on CBS.
A note about the program reads:
Serena Altschul goes back to the Kentucky farm where My Morning Jacket formed their signature sound and learns they take cues from an unlikely source – “The Muppets” – in an interview wit Charles Osgood
“The various major studios all had their echo chambers that they’re known for, so I thought, ‘Well, we’ve got these giant silos that sound amazing. Why not use them as our chambers?’” James tells Altschul during a tour of the farm. “It’s got a beautiful sound. A dirty floor, but a beautiful sound.”
That sound has earned the band great critical acclaim, and their last album Circuital reached the top ten on the Billboard charts. But it’s more than the silos that helped inspire the band as James admits Roy Orbison’s voice and “The Muppets” have influenced him.
James says his first experience with music was watching the show. “Like, that was the first time I ever knew what music was,” he tells Altschul.
My Morning Jacket will perform at Atlanta, GA’s Aarons Amphitheatre tomorrow as part of the AmericanaramA tour.
