Jenni Muldaur & Teddy Thompson Sing The Great Country Duets
The great country duets are an American treasure. Recorded by country music royalty in Nashville in the 1960s through the 1970s, these songs of euphoric, put-a-ring-on-it love, and private-tears heartbreak have a universal resonance that spans generations and cultures.
Take British singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson and New York folk-rock artist Jenni Muldaur. Both grew up decades and hundreds of miles from when and where these timeless songs were recorded. Yet the poetry and hard luck humor in the great country duets spoke to them. Now, Teddy and Jenni are sharing this music with new generations of fans with their achingly beautiful and faithfully-recorded album, Once More: Jenni Muldaur & Teddy Thompson Sing The Great Country Duets, out September 8, 2023 on Sun Records.
Once More: Jenni Muldaur & Teddy Thompson Sing The Great Country Duets is a 12-song collection of teardrop ballads and reflective mid-tempo songs previously recorded by George Jones and Tammy Wynette; Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn; and Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton. Teddy and Jenni exude their own easy charm on the 12-song album with their honeyed vocal phrasing, seamless lead vocal swapping, and sumptuous harmony vocals. The duo are deftly supported by elegantly essential traditional country accompaniment, featuring lonesome pedal steel, chicken-pickin’ electric guitars, and a nuanced but unhurried rhythm section. Once More: Jenni Muldaur & Teddy Thompson Sing The Great Country Duets was produced by David Mansfield before he scored the hit Showtime series “George & Tammy.”
