Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.

Jimmy C. Newman and Weldon Myrick R.I.P.
Two country music legends passed away last month. Jimmy C. Newman died at the age of 86 on June 21. He suffered from cancer. Steel guitar virtuoso Weldon Myrick died June 2 at the age of 76. Both were very influential in the development of country music and have been performed at the Grand Ole Opry for many decades.
