Your Roots Sunday
I love American roots music. I've been watching the Ken Burns series on country music, and it has reminded me of just how much I love Americana music. Here's a few songs, including a new and great one out of Texas, to keep your Sunday buzzin'.
Let's start new with Whiskey Myers out of Tyler, Texas. If you like rock, I don't know how you won't be able to like this, too. It grooves and moves, and makes me want to take my girl out and dance. Here ya go:
I've loved Joe Ely's music forever. He's from West Texas where the sky goes on forever and the land is flat as a pancake. If you want to see for a few miles, stand on a coffee can and the view unfolds. I've seen him a few times, and this is one of my favorite tracks. It's all American in the best way possible.
I like to dance. Here's a great little dance track from Dwight Yoakam. I like honky tonks blasting out great tunes just like this one. Try it out and then go find your person and go dancing. You won't be sorry, trust me.
Perhaps the best country/roots performer out there is a fella named Chris Stapleton. I'm going to give you about 15 minutes why. Take a look and a listen when you have the time. He's so goooooood.
Let's go back-to-back classics: Hank Williams and Johnny Cash. Enough said.
There you go. New to old, but all great. How's that for a beautiful sunny Sunday?
You know I'm thinking of you and enjoying immensely the fact that you decided to hang out with me for a few minutes. Swing by soon as I've got three concert reviews to post, and I'm adding to that list this week. Phew, I'm tuckered out just thinking about it!
See you soon.
