About one year ago the Grammy-winning trio Nickel Creek reformed after nine years of busy solo careers to pull off a 25th anniversary renunion tour. Luckily for us, they recorded a superb album to accompany it; the Grammy-nominated A Dotted Line on Nonesuch Records. Virtuosi Chris Thile, Sara Watkins and Sean Watkins close out their album with one of our favorite covers of all time, the splendid Sam Phillips tune “Where Is Love Now” feat Sara Watkins on lead vocals.
Watch a great live version HERE.
If you can’t catch Nickel Creek members Sara and Sean Watkins and their Watkins Family Hour band (feat. Fiona Apple, Don Heffington, Sebastian Steinberg & special guests) tonight in Los Angeles at Largo at the Coronet, fear not. They are will be on tour all summer long. Also, the Watkins Family Hour debut album will be available on July 24 via Family Hour Records/Thirty Tigers. Click HERE for a full list of tour dates.

Between 2009 and 2011 Sam Phillips‘ The Long Play digital subscription program yielded five incredible ep’s and the full length lp, Cameras in the Sky. This week’s Top Tune comes from the fifth and final ep of the series in 2010, the beautiful Days of the One Night Stands.
The song was first recorded by the great high lonesome-voiced Lubbock native, Jimmie Dale Gilmore on his 1996 album, Braver Newer World (Elektra Records). Produced by T Bone Burnett and featuring multi-instrumentalist Jon Brion on guitars and keyboards, the song found a fitting home with Gilmore’s characteristically spiritual musical settings. Listen in on Jimmie’s version HERE.
Most recently, you can hear a magnificent new interpretation of the song on Grammy-winning artist Nickel Creek‘s brand new album, A Dotted Line on Nonesuch Records. A delicate yet powerful version that gives vocalist Sara Watkins room to breathe. We love all three versions, true artists each and every one.
