Song 81 - - Bob Dylan

You don't need me to tell you about Bob Dylan. If you're here, you know about Bob Dylan. 

What you might not know is that "they" just released a follow-up to one of Bob's most iconic albums. Blood on the

Song 80 - - Adam Carroll

I got an email from Adam Carroll today. It wasn't really from Adam. But it was from his booking agent, who also happens to be named Adam. It was a mass email sent to folks on Adam Carroll's email list.…

Song 78 - - Nick Gunty / Marty Robbins

I don't know a whole lot about Marty Robbins. I do know that he was a very successful and prolific country singer in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. And, on top of that, he was a Winston Cup NASCAR…

Song 72 - - The National Reserve

Song 70 - - Matty Charles & Katie Rose

I know virtually nothing about Matty Charles & Katie Rose. Except this: Matty wrote a song called What I Want, and Matty and Katie recorded it. And it's about the sweetest song you could imagine. Somewhere between country, folk…
