On Friday, Nashville singer/songwriter Austin Stambaugh will release his new album Midwest Supernatural, via Anti-Corporate Music. The Ohio-born artist’s latest features an all-star team of folk and country ringers, including drummer John Mctigue III (Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell), bass fiddle player Jared Manzo (Chris Scruggs, Brazilbilly), fiddle visionary Derek Pell (Ray Price), and Northeast Ohio pedal steel giant Stephen “Tebbs” Karney (Rodney & The Regulars). It’s an earnest and genuine take on vintage country that nods to the ’60s and ’70s heyday of Nashville, and we’re hosting the stream of the album in its entirety. Listen to Austin Stambaugh’s Midwest Supernatural below.

Stambaugh said in a statement, “To my understanding I recorded this record the same way George Jones recorded his songs during his Musicore era: everything was tracked live except for the fiddle. The fiddle was the only completely overdubbed instrument. I could design the fiddle to appear at parts of the song where the drama raises. I could make the fiddle follow the narration of the story for the dramatic effect of telling the story i.e. Jim Given of LaGrange Final Delivery, similar to how people would score the music for film. This was a wonderful experience because there was no confusion amongst the live band on when or when not to take leads. The spontaneity of the live music mainly followed the melody and focused on my voice. I think I will record my next album this same exact way if given the time and place. I am so happy with how it turned out.”
