    On a side note, I grew up next to the McCoury family in Pennsylvania. They still own the farm house and stop in every once in a while even though they live in Tennessee. When I think of Del I picture a man on a riding mower with his shirt unbuttoned.

    I second DD’s “Grrrr”. Yes, I am crusty.

    I was stationed in Maryland, but my girlfriend was home in NC. Made the trip about every other weekend.

    Getting back on the right road, and in that time frame, how about:

    Ina-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly, but only on an 8-track player.

    Did he seem to be high and lonesome?
    Man, if your Mom made you wear that color when you were a baby, and you're still wearing it, it's time to grow up!

    The following piece from The New Yorker (surprisingly) is pretty interesting.

    The Discovery of Roscoe Holcomb and the “High Lonesome Sound”

    But why read when you can listen and learn?



    I'm a big fan of both Vince Gill (who I will see with the Eagles in September) and the magnificent Alison Krauss (who everyone should see/hear in concert). Since I am only permitted to provide one video per post, you may watch and listen to them on Gill's "High Lonesome Sound" here.

    Has anybody mentioned "Willin' " by Little Feat?

    Or "White Line Fever" by Merle Haggard?

    You could do a lot worse that Sister Rosetta Tharpe, perhaps the most overlooked talent in rock-n-roll history.

    Bluegrass fans check out the Mark O’Conner Band first chance you get. Mark has been around since the 80’s playing in super-bands with David Grisman, Sam Bush and Tony Rice. This is mostly an O’Connel family band with his Wife Maggie, son Forest, Forest’s wife Kate. Kate rivals Allison Krause in her prime as a bluegrass singer. It’s a fiddle heavy band as Mark, Maggie and Kate are all fiddlers. Forest is and excellent mandolin player and the the base and guitarist are great too. Probably as tight a bluegrass band as you can find these days.

    The story I heard is that Lowell George wrote “Willin’l while he was in the Mother’s of Unvention, and brought the song to Zappa. Zappa said it’s great, but if you want to play that you better form your own band. So he did.

    I’ve got “Think I’ll just stay here and Drink” by Merle on my drive list. What could be cooler than Merle on the Telecaster with some hot sax?? I’ve always thought the beauty of twang was being able to rhyme “drink” with “bank”.

    Don’t have any Little Feat on my drive list but I’d pick Dixie Chicken over Willin’. The Commodore hotel is not in Memphis btw.

    I’ll just take Waiting for Columbus end to end, and be happy when I get there.

    O'Connor's Appalachian Christmas includes guest turns from Alison Krauss, Yo-Yo Ma and more. It's fantastic.



    If you're a fan of fiddle music, you might want to pay a visit to Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. The Scottish music of the 18th C. is beautifully preserved there and played there all the time. Natalie MacMaster is one popular practitioner. And the scenery is unbelievably gorgeous.

    I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

    Some good mood driving songs

    Keep on Smilin' -Wet Willie

    Do You Know What I Mean? -Lee Michaels

    You Make Me Smile -Uncle Kracker

    Every Morning -Sugar Ray

    Smile, sing, and watch the mile markers go by.
