    SiriusXM launches new Americana channel

    SiriusXM has launched Routes Radio on channel 359 online. (That's pronounced "roots" -- get it?) The format is Americana music but the channel originates in Canada -- go figure! Here is how SiriusXM describes the channel: "Routes Radio mixes songs from the outskirts of rock and country and blends them with folk artists from yesterday and today." Most of the music is by Canadian artists and most of the music is from the 21st century. Here is a dinky lil' sample of the playlist. Lukas Nelson is a son of Willie Nelson -- and, same as Willie, he has long hair and often wears a red bandana tied across his forehead.

    And whoever is programming that channel certainly likes Can't Stop Shakin' -- it's played several times a day. Whitney Rose was born in 1986 in Charlottesville, Prince Edward Island. She plays acoustic guitar and has released three albums and an EP.
