If you like Dierks Bentley's #10 cut from his new album then you'll be interested in this story. Love Grows Wild writer, Buddy Miller, has been named the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's Artist-in-Residence for 2010. He will perform with many of his favorite collaborators on Aug. 10, 17 and 24 at 7 p.m. The concerts will mark the official reopening of the museum's Ford Theater, which was damaged by the flood that struck Nashville in May.
Each year, the museum invites a noted artist or musician to give a series of performances in the Ford Theater. This artist or musician has a strong connection to country music or has a sense of country music's contribution in general to American culture.
Buddy is also featured in the museum's newly expanded core exhibit, Sing Me Back Home.
Buddy and his wife Julie have written songs that have been recorded by Brooks & Dunn, the Dixie Chicks, Emmylou Harris, Lee Ann Womack and many others. All you die-hard Dierks fans will remember fondly, "My Love Will Follow You," which the Millers co-wrote and Dierks recorded on his first self-titled album.
My love will follow you, down every highway of your soul
You can leave me for behind, but my love will be your shadow everywhere you go
His production credits include albums by Patty Griffin and Robert Plant, and he's touring with both this summer.
Miller was named artist of the decade for the 2000s by No Depression magazine.
