Country Music Sunday

Been feeling rootsy.

Here's what's scratching the itch these days:

Dale Watson
Bobby Bare Jr.
Bradley Walker
The Meat Purveyors
Kelly Hogan (she usta be in the Jody Grind!)

I'm even rockin' rootsy:

Two Cow Garage (Warning: MySpace link)
Matt Mays and El Torpedo
The Sadies
Scott Miller and the Commonwealth

Next week I'll be back to the usual screamin' rawk, but for right now, on a gray Sunday afternoon, nothing suits the mood better than Dale Watson. Why is this guy not the biggest star in country music? Oh, that's right. Because country music isn't country anymore.

I gotta agree with you pimping the Meat Purveyors. I don't have much of their music, but what I have is great. Plus, I love the top line of their website: I can see why you are drawn to them. Too bad you ain't from Austin.

Seriously, get yourself some Gram Parsons, if you don't have some already. Cash and the Hag can make me cry, but Parsons (especially when he sings with Emmylou) makes me sob.

I have everything from The International Submarine Band to Sweetheart of the Rodeo to a pile of Emmylou's more noisome maunderings. I got the Gram Parsons angle covered. I tell you what, though, Dale Watson is the shit.
