Written In Chalk

Written in Chalk - the new CD by Buddy and Julie Miller (my VERY favorites) was released on March 3rd. We saw a write-up in World Magazine listing it as a new notable CD saying:

Written in Chalk Buddy & Julie Miller
Style: The latest stretch of the Americana highway along which the Millers, solo and together, have been hiking for over 20 years.
Worldview: "If all our heartaches were in a stack, they'd go all the way up to heaven and back. / We don't know all the trouble we're in. [. . .] Jesus, save us from our sin" ("Chalk").
Overall quality: Backwoods country blues (Buddy) and late-night heartbreak (Julie) battered by bare-knuckled grace (Buddy with Julie); the difference this time: the cameos (Robert Plant, Emmylou Harris, Regina McCrary, Patty Griffin).

The Millers have been putting out music together for years and whether it is a solo album for either or an official joint effort, they each have both Buddy and Julie's handprints all over them. I had the extreme privilege of working with and getting to know the Millers a number of years back. Talent that shows no end and lovely humility go hand in hand with them. Isn't that a nice thing to see? I'm excited for this new musical release by them. Can't wait to hear the whole thing. http://www.buddyandjulie.com/

Hi Karen,
I visited your blogspot after I saw your e-mail about the bison delivery. I'm so excited to hear that Buddy and Julie Miller have a new cd. I was just wondering about them the other day!
