Brittany Howard – History Repeats


Casey here with my DJ pick of the week from Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes. “History Repeats” is the lead single off her upcoming debut LP, Jamie, named after Howard’s late sister. 

“She was a musician too,” she explains in a statement. “I did this so her name would no longer bring me memories of sadness and as a way to thank her for passing on to me everything she loved: music, art, creativity.”

Listen to “History Repeats” below and let us know what you think! Jamie is our Sept. 20 via ATO Records.

Casey is that rarest of creatures…a Native Tennesseean. His love of music can be traced to the day his dad sat him down and played him Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” Everything pretty much changed after that. He began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 at an AM station in Northern Middle Tennessee. It was there he learned how to cue vinyl records, splice tape with razor blades, and other skills that no longer serve any purpose. In the late nineties, he was the host of our evening show until management decided that probably wasn’t a good idea anymore. Casey returned to Nashville airwaves in 2016. When he isn’t on the air, he spends his time with his wife and son. He would also appreciate it if you’d get offa his lawn.
