cadillac county

Toby Keith has a new album "White Trash with Money" just out and you can stream it for free on the CMT listening party at 128. I had a listen last night and I don't think it is as memorable as some of his other stuff, notably "Beer for my Horses". Alan Jackson's syrupy gospel Precious Memories album is up as well, I was mega disappointed when I heard it. Let's hope he gets back to doing the Devils Music soon.It was recorded as a present for his mother, but I guess she would have preferred a date with Jayne County to this piffle.
Rosanne Cash has her album Black Cadillac up there too, and it is well worth a spin around your eardrums.
However, the best of the bunch has to be a big bunch of Merle Haggard albums to die for. I have been listening to loads of stuff I haven't heard before and at this good quality it almost makes up for not being able to rip them onto my hard drive.
I have just streamed them onto my mini disc and can enjoy them through a link to my stereo....yeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaa rock on!!!

Merle Haggard is a wonderful. His last few albums are at least as good as anything anyone else out there is producing. He's one of the main reasons I'm obsessed with music.

glad you are obsessed with music too, it makes for a more interesting life. I have met a few folk who NEVER listen to music and own no cd's or even cassettes. WOW!!! AND THEY SAY THEY ARE FROM PLANET EARTH???
beer for my horses is a fab track with my fave willie nelson giving it laldy...countrry sure has all the best titles!!

Did you know that Merle is opening for Dylan's U.S. tour this spring? I'll attend the extravaganza in 10 days. And Joe is correct- Merle's still very relevant. But Merle's music is gone from CMT's site now. An odd kd lang disc is featured, however...
