What else can you say? Just watch. Nah…listen.

It Just Don’t Pay To Be A Good Ol Boy

March 9, 2012

Check out this classic Austin City Limits appearance by Steve Earle. Too bad the audio/video get out of sync towards the end of the video, but beggars can’t be choosers. I was born in the land of plenty, now there ain’t enough.

The Hag – I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am

February 22, 2012

One of my all-time favorite Haggard songs. There’s a lot to say about this song, not only the fitting performance of it, but how well written it is. You would probably get slapped in the mouth by any real country fan if you tried to make the assertion that this song isn’t country. Yet look [...]

The Two Sexiest Country Songs of All Time?

February 8, 2012

I think I just heard them, one right after the other. The first one is pretty obvious: Conway Twitty’s “Lay You Down”. You could probably make a case that “Slow Hand” outranks this one.

February 2, 2012

Even before I could fully appreciate the simplicity, beauty, and power of “Red Headed Stranger” it was one of my favorite albums. I’m talking about from a very young age. My parents had it on wax, and I think the only two albums I listened to more were a Jerry Reed Live album and the [...]

Country Music Hall of Fame Class of 2012 Possibilities

January 26, 2012

Billboard has a post about possible inductees for the Country Music Hall of Fame class of 2012. I think these are all pretty good nominations, but I definitely have some opinions. I’m actually very surprised that Archie Campbell and June Carter Cash aren’t already members of the Hall, so those two should definitely go in. [...]

Some Classic Roseanne Cash

January 24, 2012

A lot of people would say “Seven Year Ache” isn’t really a country song. They may even say Roseanne Cash isn’t country. She lives in New York after all. But I think when your name is Cash you automatically get a little leeway. Whether it’s country or not, “Seven Year Ache” is a terrific tune [...]
