    Watch: Carolina Chocolate Drops Perform Three Songs for CMT's "Concrete Country"

    Carolina Chocolate Drops, who resume their tour at the Rhythm & Roots Festival in Charlestown, Rhode Island, on September 1, are featured on Concrete Country, CMT's celebration of roots music. The band hit the streets of Nashville to talk a bit about their music and perform three songs for the set, opening with a traditional tune, followed by "Country Girl," off their latest Nonesuch album, Leaving Eden, and "Your Baby Ain't Sweet Like Mine," off their Grammy Award–winning Nonesuch debut album, Genuine Negro Jig. Watch all three performances below.

    Leaving Eden was produced by Buddy Miller and released earlier this year to critical acclaim. They “may take their cues from 1920s string- and jug-band music," said USA Today, "but they're simply a great band.” The Observer calls them "the most electrifying acoustic act around." Rolling Stone gives the album four stars. The BBC says of Leaving Eden: "It's plain terrific."

    To pick up a copy of both albums, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include MP3s of the album at checkout. To find out where Carolina Chocolate Drops are performing live over the next several months, including three recently announced shows in Germany with label mates Punch Brothers, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
