Video: Chris Thile & Michael Daves Perform "My Little Girl in Tennessee"As noted earlier this week in the Nonesuch Journal, Chris Thile and Michael Daves, whose debut duo album, Sleep with One Eye Open, is due out on Nonesuch on May 10, have launched a new web site about the project at thiledaves.com. The site launched with two videos: a short film on the making of the album and a performance of the album's title track, Lester Flatt's "Sleep with One Eye Open," the first in a series of performance videos captured live at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City. Now comes the release on the site of the latest video in the series: Thile and Daves performing another track from the new album, Flatt's "My Little Girl in Tennesse." You can watch the video below and at nonesuch.com/media.
Sleep with One Eye Open is available for pre-order in the Nonesuch Store. Pre-orders include an autographed CD booklet and the chance to win a solid spruce-top Martin 000X1AE acoustic guitar. The album was recorded live to tape in at Jack White’s Third Man studio in Nashville and features 16 traditional bluegrass tunes by legends like The Monroe Brothers, The Louvin Brothers, Jimmy Martin, and Flatt & Scruggs.
