So how did you like the tunes from the last installment?
I hope I helped you add one or two new songs to your collection. Also, I hope I helped you see that you can find good country songs outside of the tightly controlled realm of mainstream country radio.
This week I have a few more artists for you.
A Colorado native who has been compared to Alison Krauss and another who has been called the “soul of the [Musik] Mafia” , a group of musicians that brought you acts like Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson.
Here goes (ladies first) –
Good Country Songs Not on Radio Part 2
Whatever Is – Trinity Demask (as Third Road Home)
I met Trinity at a music conference last summer. After hearing her perform this song live – just her singing with her guitar – I had to meet her. This song gave me goosebumps. The lyrics just reach out, grab you and give you one of those hugs that lets you know that everything… is gonna be alright. Great tune to have in your collection for those days when you need a pick-me-up.
Grandma – Jon Nicholson
This song is one of those tunes that just makes you smile. It certainly gave me one and pretty anyone else I share it with. I just love the look on peoples faces when they hear what it is that Grandma is trying for the very first time. Best of all, the song reminds you and I both that there is a first time for everything no matter how old you are.
There you go. A few more songs for you to check out and hopefully add to the collection.
