Jonathan Wilson 'Dixie Blur'

North Carolina native Jonathan Wilson has come home on his new record Dixie Blur.  The long-time California resident was talking to Steve Earle at a session of the live-music radio program E-Town when Earle suggested he take his latest batch of songs to Nashville to record with live musicians.  On past efforts, Wilson often worked alone in his studio outside of Los Angeles, playing all the instruments himself.

"I started to imagine that classic Nashville session band and what that could be." Wilson told WUNC's Eric Hodge.

The new collection harks back to the sounds of the North Carolina mountains where Wilson grew up. It was co-produced by Wilco's Pat Sansone.
