If you are a listener to mainstream country music radio there is a good chance that you are missing out on some really good country songs. That is why I decided to start a series to share some of the good stuff that gets overlooked for one reason or another.
In today’s installment I have two songs for you that are by the same artist. Why? basically it was just too damn hard to pick “one” that I wanted to tell you about.
Hell, this artist has so many great tunes it hard enough just try to narrow it down to two. So rather than strees out about it, I figured screw it. The good people reading this post will totally understand.
Today I pick two songs by Chris Knight. You may not have heard of him but it is possible that you’ve heard his music. His songs have been recorded by artists like Confederate Railroad, Montgomery Gentry, John Anderson, and Randy Travis.
“Highway Junkie” Chris Knight from Trailer II
If you are sucker for good acoustic guitar riffs like I am, this song delivers. This riff picks you up, throws you in the passenger seat of an 18 wheeler and takes you far, far away from the heartache.
Also, listen closely to the lyrics and the play on words in this song. They are so plain spoken and simple yet genius.
“Summer of 75” Chris Knight from Trailer II
Do you remember the first time you ever fell head over heels with someone? And when I say remember I mean remember not just with your mind but with your entire body? Your skin remembers the first touch, your lips remember that first kiss and that jolt of electricity you felt still has a enough jiuce to take you right back to that day.
Every once in awhile I stumble accross a song that can literally strap you into a time machine, take you to a moment in your past and and bath you in that moment. This is one of those songs.

Now go check them out and when you hear them, let me know what you think in the comments below. Tell me if you agree that it is a tragedy that you and music fans everywhere don’t get to hear more of this stuff on the radio.
