Last month’s Spotlight Music
“Dirt Road’s End”- Sugarcane Jane

“Dirt Road’s End”
is receiving positive reviews for a reason – it provides a window into a much larger picture of who Sugarcane Jane is and which longtime fans already know. For those who have never heard the music of Sugarcane Jane, this is the perfect introduction. “Dirt Road’s End” starts off with the auto-biographical fan favorite, “The Ballad of Sugarcane Jane” and continues down a musical journey of songs: “The Game”, “San Andreas”, “Home Nights”, “Louisiana”, “Pedigree”, “Heartbreak Road”, “Not Another Truck Song”, “Sugar” and finally “Glory Bound”.  It’s one musical journey worth repeating over and over.

The album co-produced with legendary Buzz Cason, the famed Americana/Roots music singer-songwriter is being released on his ArenA Recordings / eOne Entertainment. Sugarcane Jane fans will be pleased to hear some familiar tunes, but sounding completely fresh and new. Anthony’s  superior skills as a musician and songwriter are fully intact combining a perfect blending of voices with Savana.

Sugarcane Jane’s music is called Organic Music at its Finest – “Dirt Road’s End” lives up to that saying to the fullest!

There are fans of music and then – ‘there are fans of music!”  Bobby Rayborn is one such person. He keeps with him, at all times, a book that he continuously updates as regards to upcoming concerts. We have had the privilege of attending a substantial number of shows and road trips with Bobby, including ones to Nashville to see Dave Rawlings Machine at The Ryman; Billy Joe Shaver in Maryville, TN; multiple times to Jackson, MS; Birmingham, AL; Tupelo, MS; New Orleans, LA and more. He is the guy that goes to each concert and often purchases the musicians’ complete collection of CDs and has them signed.  Bobby is also a major music enthusiast with the ability to spread the word about some of his favorites. When not on the road, he can often be seen greeting customers and visitors at the famous Jack’s by the Tracks in  Pascagoula, MS.  He is as much part of The Southland Music Line, as well, since he spends so much time with all its contributors. Above all, he’s our friend and we owe him a huge gratitude of thanks and appreciation. (The photo above is Bobby with Billy Joe Shaver; in Tupelo, MS; the one below is with (from left) The Line’s Johnny Cole Savana & Anthony Crawford aka Sugarcane Jane with Bobby.  Sugarcane Jane opened the show in Birmingham for Steve Winwood.
