He also stopped by Amazon Music to play a few songs off of his latest record We’re Not Going Anywhere.

Rolling Stone premiered Joe Purdy and Amber Rubarth's new song, "Someone Singing With Me," from the upcoming film American Folk. Rolling Stone said, "Penned and sung by Purdy, and featuring Rubarth's plaintive mountain harmony, the sweet tune features simple guitar accompaniment and beautifully recalls several of the duets that John Prine has sung so effectively with frequent partner Iris DeMent, yet it offers the added bonus of discovering two wondrous new voices steeped in the folk tradition."
