ATO records is putting out a two-disc compilation of Civil War-era songs, featuring some of the best names in the business. Entitled Divided and United,the record will feature tracks from Old Crow Medicine Show, A.A. Bondy, Taj Mahal, T. Bone Burnett, Steve Earle, Dolly Parton, and more. The first track is a heart-wrenching tale of a soldier going off to war, sung beautifully by none other than the legendary Loretta Lynn.

Lynn told Rolling Stone:"I had such a great time recording this song for this album. I loved the song and sound of that banjo, played by Bryan Sutton, made me feel I was back on the front porch in Kentucky where I came from. Glad to be a part of this record."

Divided and United will be out on ATO this fall, but no word yet on exact details, so stay tuned at Zumic for more updates.
