Two Americana music veterans whose paths have crossed for nearly half a century — even before they knew one another — are teaming up for their first recording as a duo, a project that brings Southern California native Dave Alvin together with esteemed West Texas singer-songwriter Jimmie Dale Gilmore.

The pair recently joined forces to record the forthcoming album “Downey to Lubbock,” the title referring to their hometowns.
