Superb new album Driving Friend was just released last week.

Here at the Blurt bunker we like to support the home team – that would include singer/songwriter (and spouse of Sarah Lee Guthrie) Johnny Irion, whose North Carolina roots run deep. He just released a new album on CD and vinyl titled Driving Friend following a solid PledgeMusic campaign, so check out the official album trailer, below. A Blurt review of the record is forthcoming, incidentally.
Meanwhile, Johnny was interviewed by NPR’s Scott Simon for “Weekend Edition” this past Saturday, and the conversation was clearly one of deep mutual respect. Check it out at NPR (they have published the transcript of the talk as well), or listen to it below.
