Lost Highway Records in Nashville is to kick off a nationally syndicated radio show in late August. The "Lost Highway Radio Show," syndicated by Jones Radio Networks, will feature one artist per hour-long program. The premiere episode will be hosted by U2 frontman Bono and will feature a special 90-minute concert by Lucinda Williams, recorded May 27 at New York's Bowery Ballroom.

The show will initially air quarterly, and future installments will run 60 minutes, each with a new host. The second episode with the Jayhawks captures a recent live performance from Chicago.

Lost Highway was launched in 2001, and recognized the following year with seven Grammy Awards, led by the soundtrack to "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" The album has sold around 6.5 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The label is also home to Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Johnny Cash, John Eddie and Ryan Adams, among others. Later this year, Lost Highway is scheduled to release albums from Lovett and Kim Richey, as well as a compilation of acoustic Christmas songs.
