Here & Now Guest:

  • Rhett Miller and Murry Hammond of the Old 97's

Rolling Stone Magazine calls the latest album by the Old 97's a perfect mix of articulate and off the cuff music.

The Washington Post says "Their energetic new album, “The Grand Theatre Vol. 2,” continues the Old 97s’ long-winning streak with the sort of cavalier excellence that makes the arduous sound easy."

"Grand Theater Volume Two" includes 13 songs that the Texas-based band didn't have room for when it released the "Grand Theater Volume One," last year.

The songs were written as if they were letters home when bandleader Rhett Miller was on a solo tour in Europe.
