After releasing their acclaimed all acoustic album Good Luck And Good Night last year, New York City/Nashville-based Americana band JD & The Straight Shot are returning with a new album titled The Great Divide.
In anticipation of the album's release this fall, the band recently shared the first single "I Should've Known," a timely track that focuses on the subject of abuse by men in power. Layered harmonies and stunning vocals captivate, while haunting lyrics highlight the need to defend victims and to recognize the signs of abuse.

Fronted by guitarist Jim Dolan, JD & The Straight Shot also features bassist Byron House (Robert Plant, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton), violinist/fiddler Erin Slaver (Martina McBride, Rod Stewart), guitarist Marc Copely (B.B. King, Roseanne Cash), guitarist/vocalist Carolyn Dawn Johnson (Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney), and drummer/percussionist Shawn Pelton (Sheryl Crow, Leon Helm, Saturday Night Live band). Together the band will play new songs from The Great Divide, in addition to hits from their previous albums, at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's "Rock Hall Live" series in Cleveland on August 16.
