    Jesse Daniel's new album is pretty solid on first listen. About halfway through now, and really liking it.

    I’m not convinced that today’s country music is gayer than old country music. The artists are just slightly more overtly homosexual than was “Hank” Williams.

    Where’d you hear it? I’ve heard a ton of the songs on his streams but never in album form.

    After a few listens, I really think this is their strongest album yet. None of the songs individually are as good as Steak night, the last time, or wedding band for me but every single song on this album is great in its own right. Tough right now to name my favorite album of the year with Cole Chaney, John R Miller, Mac Leaphart, and Pony Bradshaw. It's been such a great year even without some big names. That's a solid top 5 for any year

    they sound awesome live. went to see them at the grey eagle in asheville in 2019. i was bummed that me and like 15 other people showed up to see them. they brought good energy despite the small crowd.

    something about a pedal steel just really hits for me. i dont get to see many bands that feature one.

    Probably not gonna be the most popular opinion in here but this cover is amazing to me. Stapleton goes off at like the 6 minute mark.

    The McMurtry is so good. Operation Never Mind is such a perfectly timed American military industrial complex song that it just bowled me over. And a worthy defense of the working class.

    Railbird had 3 stages and it was tough to try and see everybody I wanted to, but I was able to see most of them. I saw:

    Jason Isbell
    Zach Bryan
    Billy Strings
    Robert Earl Keen
    Margo Price
    Leon Bridges
    Dave Matthews
    My Morning Jacket

    Billy and his band completely blew me away. One of the best live performances I’ve ever seen.

    Saturday was pretty brutal. Very hot and crazy long/slow lines everywhere all day. Lots of pissed off people.

    Sunday was much better. Easy access to free water bottles all day, shorter/faster lines, and not as hot.

    I was rage tweeting them about the lines on Saturday. That was an abject failure on their part. 100° heat index and there are hour lines for fucking water.

    other than that, the music was solid. Introduced some folks to Zach Bryan’s music and they loved him.

    Black Pumas also put on a solid set and I spent the entire set in line at that Budweiser Beer Garden
