Larry Cordle and Lonesome Standard Time at Station Inn 

The Cord Abides

The Cord Abides
A veteran who’s seen the ups and downs of Nashville’s country and bluegrass for more than a quarter of a century, the mighty Cord has been known to get down in the dumps over the business. But lately the Kentucky native (and eternal loyalist) has been fired up and hitting the circuit with a vengeance. Two new band members—banjo man Jody King and bassist James Doncsecz—have recently joined longtimers Kim Gardner (dobro) and Booie Beach (guitar), and it’s probably no accident that the lineup reunites a hot North Carolina band from the early ’90s, After 5. Yet Cordle’s the man in charge, and for good reason. A world-class songwriter and singer, he’s also one of the best in any genre at effortlessly grabbing an audience in the first five minutes of a show—and never turning it loose.
