there is a video from a show a couple days ago and he was fine
It's just luck of the draw, really. Seems like he's been better since the Steamboat incident though.
I saw them twice last week and all was good.
Caught the show in mobile last night. They were excellent. On point all night.
Next time they come through Arizona I'll have to try to catch a show.
Anyone have a decent list of new albums/artists to check out? I've been slacking on my red dirt this year.
Bingham's got a live album out today that's really good.
What in the hell is this from Aaron Watson?
Can't say I'm surprised. That is awful.
It's weird when an artist pivots like that this far down the road in their career. I guess they think they'll pick up enough new fans to outweigh the ones they lose, but it's not like Watson is some 25 year old young gun on the circuit. I've never been the biggest Aaron Watson fan (though I do think July in Cheyenne is a fantastic song and really like some of his earlier stuff), but I'd probably still go to a show of his if it was convenient, just try to time my piss breaks to fall whenever he plays his new stuff.
It's so much more frustrating when it feels like a cash grab, rather than an actual (typically failed) attempt at finding a new sound, like Bingham's Tomorrowland. Bingham's my dude, so this may be an unfair comparison for Watson, but I think he genuinely thought he could redefine his style for artistic reasons, it just happened to fall flat on its ugly face. Some artists can do it really well, like Sturgill, but it's a tough row to hoe.
I'm kinda drunk and haven't been really into the music scene in five plus years, so I could very well be way off. I did listen to Casey Donahew's latest album driving out to the ranch last weekend and he still sings about getting drunk and white trash people, which reminded me of college. In a way it was nostalgic, in another, it was kind of disappointing.
Agreed. If it's a genuine attempt to try something new, I can be ok with it. But in Aaron Watson's case, you can't put Fence Post on your last album, then turn around and drop the new single without looking like a fake piece of shit.
Eric Church did the same thing "The man in black would have whipped your ass" then drops Homeboy.
"God knows I'd never sell my soul to rock n roll, to rap, or wear those tight skinny jeans"
... makes a song with pop hooks.
I became aware of James McMurty recently through Spotify and have been hooked. dude is awesome
give me more stuff like that. tia
Robert Earl Keen, John Prine, Steve Earle, Ryan Bingham, Chris Knight, Hayes Carll, Todd Snider.
love chris knight
Read an interview recently where he said he's finally got some new songs and is going to get back in the studio sometime soon. Been 4+ years since Little Victories.
that's good news. imagine what he's put together in those 4 years is pretty good
Levelland was a game-changer for me. Also, Rachel's Song, Rayolight, We Can't Make It Here, etc.
that song is what got me hooked, that and choctaw bingo
jinks is on conan coming up next.
Love all these guys. Feel like McMurtry was a little ahead of his time. Probably didn't catch on because of his political views too.
Got the old Cory morrow and the songs we wish we'd written on. Sad that guy disappeared.
Rachel's Song and Levelland are the standards for the genre, imo.
Doesn't get much better than Out Here in the Middle and No More Buffalo.
John Moreland announced a new album out in May. New song:
Whiskey Myers show starts in a few. I am excite.
Love those dudes. Road of Life is one of my favorite red-dirt albums.
Band opening for them is the Steelwoods. Know anything about them? Should I stay here or go next door to booze in preparation for Whiskey Myers?
Never heard of 'em. Booze it up.
On it. I can actually hear them from the bar. Playing whipping post at the moment. Not terrible.
Seeing Lucero and John Moreland back to back weeks in September here in Tallahassee. Music Scene here in town has gotten so much better in the last 2 years
Want to play this game?
what shows in Pcola are you going to?
None, but I'm going to two at red rocks Isbell and Sturgill
Then we got Isbell in Mobile when I get back.
Cody Jinks tonight. Real excited.
New Turnpike Troubadours album October 20th. http://thedailycountry.com/news/tur...ated-a-long-way-from-your-heart-on-october-20
Fap fap fap
SC posted him somewhere, believe the Sturgill thread, but check Tyler Childers out. At least give this song a chance.
My favorite record of 2017.
Feathered Indians, shake the frost and universal sound are all real good.
those are great, also like tattoos, oneida, and follow you to vergie
hes such a great songwriter
Turnpike release. There's nothing these dudes put out that isn't great music.
New Turnpike track.
