So what's it like to have a rock star produce your folky-bluegrass album? Ask the women of Uncle Earl. They're touring right now in support of their brand new record, "Waterloo, Tennessee" and were fortunate enough to have John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin fame produce the disc.

Apparently, he's a fan of old time music and met Uncle Earl at a festival, sat in with them, and ended up producing their CD.

Uncle Earl was in the Twin Cities and stopped in the Morning Show studio to chat with Dale and Jim Ed.

Songs performed: "Wish I Had My Time Again," "The Last Goodbye," and "One True / Boatin' Up Slowly."
