Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale team up at last

It took Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale almost 20 years to get around to making a record together, and once they finally did, it took them three days. The pair, each a leading light in the burgeoning Americana genre, released that record, “Buddy and Jim,” late last year. They’ll be playing one of the few dates they’re doing together this summer on Sunday at the Green River Festival in Greenfield.

The two have been friends and musical collaborators for almost the entirety of their careers — 33 years, reckons Lauderdale in a recent phone conversation that took place as he made his way from his Nashville home to the Grand Ole Opry, where he was scheduled to play that evening.
