News /// 5.11.12: Zooey D. to Play Loretta L., Karen Elson & Ren Harvieu’s new video, Raconteurs no more for now, Tristen at…wait – Slow Bar? and more

Anyone at the Ryman last night? If you were, you’d have witnessed a little bit of Zooey Deschanel, who joined Loretta Lynn on stage to announce that Ms. Z will be starring in a new Broadway musical about the coal miner’s daughter called, er, Coal Miner’s Daughter.  And somewhere out there, M. Ward sheds a tear.

Ren Harvieu & Karen Elson have released a beautiful video for their equally beautiful song, The Train Song. Watch the video after the jump. The track is available on Ren’s Open Up Your Arms EP.

ABC News had some time with Brendan Benson, and asked him about the future of the Raconteurs. Hint: don’t expect much. But after Jack White finally went Jack White, that’s not too much of a shocker.

Parlour & Juke has $7 local presale tickets for The Ettes at the High Watt on 6.14 with Fly Golden Eagle and Denney & the Jets.

– Show announcements: Murder By Death with Cory Chisel and Wandering Sons on 6.24 at Mercy, Tristen at Slow Bar on 6.2o (which is back?! Can someone please decode for us?).  Also, free on Tuesday at the MD Music loft above Mad Donna’s: Josh Farrow, Jason Childs and Rhythm Kitchen, all free at 10:30 p.m.

–  Anderson East stopped by Live on Lightening 100. Listen here.

– Want to know what to do this weekend? Go here. It should also be a lovely day tomorrow for the Musician’s Corner in centennial park. There’s also the Meet’N 3 event at the Farmer’s Market.

– In case you want to fly to Boston for Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band at Fenway Park on 8.14 (or just visit your dad, i.e. me, hooray!), Southwest now has a direct flight to Boston Logan.

CMT says that Miranda Lambert and Kate Middleton have something in common. May it’s husbands having “bromances” with Adam Levine??
