-Has a Tribute album to Willie Nelson called "To Willie"
-Recorded a Black Cab Sessions for "Wolves", click here.
-New music video for "It's Hard to be Humble when you're from Alabama" posted July 2010, click here.
-"I wish I was in Heaven sitting down" on Paste Magazine. (This one's worth the click!)

Songs to listen to: Wolves (Posted below), I wish I was in Heaven sitting down, Full Grown Man.

Conclusion: I was pretty much 100% sold with "Wolves" and just overly complacent with "I wish I was in Heaven sitting down". I need to see this guy live, there's no doubt about it. If you're in Toronto April 10, you need to drop by Lee's Palace and spend the couple of dollars to check him out. It's going to be super! (Buy your tickets here!) Otherwise, if you're attending Bonnaroo and you're into folk music, make sure you stop by his stage because I have high anticipations with the guy!


  1. Wow i gotta say im really inspired by his lyrics! I can't wait til you see his show and hopefully get an interview with him!
    have you considered filming interviews?

  2. nice job Amanda!

  3. I first saw him live at the ATP Festival about 4 years ago, when his music was new to me. It was one of the best performances I've ever seen, and since then I have been hooked on his music.
