…And Don’t Lay A Hand On The Bay

by Scott on February 2, 2012

[amzn_product_inline asin=’B00004U2G7′] 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 […]


Guy Clark Songs & Stories

by Scott on January 5, 2012

My album for today is Guy Clark’s “Songs and Stories”, which is a new live album. Well, it’s new to me…it just came out a few months ago. Have I mentioned how much I love Spotify and how it lets me listen to new stuff on demand? Anyway, this album features great performances of many […]

Rodeo Songs

I love ‘em! I was talking to a buddy at work today about our favorite rodeo songs, and I actually can’t think of a rodeo song I don’t like. I would have a hard time ranking my favorites in order, at least after the one I’d call the best–”Amarillo by Morning – George Strait’s Greatest […]


[amzn_product_inline asin=’B001HE2OUM’] I’ve been on a little Freddy Fender kick lately. The only songs I remember from him growing up were “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights” and “Before the Next Teardrop Falls”, but I’m hooked on “La Musica De Baldemar Huerta” (on Amazon)which was released in 2002. Been listening to as much Spanish as possible (trying […]
