Here are just some random songs that I really like.
I love me some Guy Clark. This song has some bonus Emmylou too.
My favorite Waylon song
Bruce Robison is a great songwriter. I first heard about him when Angry All the Time came out. This is an amazing song with a excellent video featuring his wife Kelly Willis. I get chills every time I see this as you can just feel the weariness and despair.
When Tim and Faith covered this song, they completely sucked all of the emotion out of it. I hate their version.
Bruce also wrote "Travelin Soldier" which was nicely covered by the Dixie Chicks. I like his version but it just seems like a song that should be sung by a woman.
Speaking of Rodney Crowell (in my earlier posts), his ex-wife Rosanne Cash is probably best known for her poppy Seven Year Ache but she has turned into a mature, solid singer/songwriter.
Here is a song she did with her dad shortly before he died. It's been known to make the ol' allergies flare up.
Also, if you don't have her Black Cadillac album, which she wrote after Johnny died, you are doing yourself a disservice. Amazing album.
