Bloodshot Records is celebrating its 25th anniversary as a label this year. On Nov. 8 the label will release a new 22-song compilation to mark the occasion. Titled Too Late to Pray: Defiant Chicago Roots, the compilation revisits the concept of the label's first release in 1994, For A Life of Sin: Insurgent Chicago Country, which collected new material from a range of artists in the roots/country scene that Bloodshot highlights.
