Tablet users and American Songwriter subscribers who have iPad and Android devices, rejoice: the November/December 2015 edition is now available for download! The dead-tree edition doesn’t hit stands until November 10, but you don’t have to wait to dive into our “Biz Issue.”
In this special issue, we pull back the curtain on the music industry, offering behind the scenes looks at everything from daily writing routines to capturing that studio magic. We pay a visit to Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welch, who speak candidly about the new Dave Rawlings Machine album Nashville Obsolete. We look back at the career of indie rock cult favorites Pavement and catch up with one of our favorite songwriters, Josh Ritter. We also hit Americana Fest in Nashville, catching some of the genre’s most promising new acts as well as revisiting some old favorites.
