HOLY SCHNIKES this Jamey Johnson cover of George Jones’ “Still Doing Time” is good enough to bring me out of my blogging funk:

The power of a great artist covering a great song originally by one of the world’s greatest.

Listen: “Unkind,” Sloan

The supergroup drought has ended in country music – and while they’re pretty much the opposite of The Highwaymen, I’m more than excited about the Pistol Annies’ upcoming record. Seriously, you should buy this song.

Listen: “Working Class Hero,” Alan Jackson

This performance and song may very well sum up the reasons why I’m such a big fan of Alan Jackson and why he’s one of the best country music has ever seen:

It’s one of his many nineties-era slices of neo-traditional heaven,  but I’d forgotten about it for the longest time. Flash back to Father’s Day last year when I came across one of those musical greetings cards featuring this song – the perfect card for the man who is responsible for my love of country music.

Listen: Sondre Lerche

I’m headed to see this guy tonight – after working his record for the past few months, it’ll be great to see him live.
