Jim Lauderdale & Buddy Miller @ Headliners

Friday, Feb. 1

Headliners Music Hall
1386 Lexington Road
$20; 9 p.m.

Robert Plant. Alison Krauss. George Strait. Patty Loveless. Dwight Yoakam. These are just a few of the prominent Americana and country artists Jim Lauderdale and Buddy Miller have collaborated with throughout many decades in music. However, their most recent collaboration is with each other, as these two vocalists/guitarists released the simply titled Buddy and Jim in December. Now on tour together, the duo make their way to Headliners. Listening to Buddy and Jim, it seems fairly obvious that both artists are based in Nashville, as many elements of that Hank Williams-esque Tennessee twang make their presence known in dance numbers like “The Wobble” and the ballad “It Hurts Me.” And yet, some songs maintain a modern twist; I can imagine “Vampire Girl” being played on the jukebox at Merlotte’s on “True Blood,” down in the sticky Southern town of Bon Temps. —Kelly Kettering
