That Nashville Sound Friday Newsbytes

There's lots of news around the country music world today from the likes of Garth Brooks, Dwight Yoakam, Darryl Worley, Bradley Walker and an upcoming release from Bruce Springsteen that's worth noting.

- Darryl Worley has signed with Daywind Records and will be releasing his first gospel album.

- On 9/23, Bruce Springsteen will release a new autobiography along with a companion album called Chapter and Verse.

- Garth Brooks has two album releases planned on his own Pearl Records before the end of the year.

- Bakersfield native Dwight Yoakam will be releasing his first bluegrass album on 9/23 called Swimmin' Pools, Movie Stars.

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band will be releasing a combo CD/DVD on 9/30 entitled Circlin' Back - Celebrating 50 Years- believe this is the recording from the PBS special that features Vince Gill, Alison Krauss and more.

- Songwriter Bradley Walker, friend and television guest to Joey+Rory, will release his first album on Gaither Records called Call Me Old-Fashioned.  If you missed the tragic/inspiring story behind the making of this album, read it here.

- Speaking of Joey+Rory, Rory has a book planned about his late bride, Joey. It is scheduled for a Valentine's Day release next year.

- Lera Lynn released a killer sparse live video of her playing "The Only Thing Worth Fighting For."

- The alternative song "Cut the Heartstrings" from the band Unsecret features the vocals of Mindy Smith- it's great to hear her voice on a new project no matter what the genre.
