Fresh on the heels of his new album ‘Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables’ Todd Snider will release ‘Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker,’ a tribute to his original musical hero(4/24.)  “I’ve always hoped I’d stay around long enough to get to make a record of Jerry Jeff Walker songs,” Snider says. “He’s the guy I saw at 19 and decided to try to be like. His are the first songs I learned.”

Produced by Don Was (Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones), the 14 celebratory tracks feature friends and admirers like Kix Brooks of Brooks and Dunn, Elizabeth Cook, and Amy LaVere. “We just went into a studio and played about 30 of Jerry Jeff’s songs and let the performances dictate what songs would make it,” Snider says, adding, “I could’ve done 30 more.”

Todd’s tour continues this spring, with shows at L.A.’s El Rey Theater on March 30 and a headlining show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on June 2.

    I used to be proud member of the Shithouse Choir but Todd’s latest efforts have been disappointing. I do think this JJW tribute album may be better that his last two solo efforts. His music is just not fun for me anymore and I’m tired of the political bullshit in all his songs. I miss the old stuff. Maybe he needs to hit the road more and quit watching MSNBC all day Keep On Chooglin
