So you know that I'm not really a writer. Maybe I will start improving after a while but my blog is mostly about - I love this, listen! So here are the I love this - listen Americana songs from 2013.
The Lone Below - You Never Need Nobody
I know I can't see them all but I'm bummed that I missed them when they were in Dallas. I think I will definitely try to catch them the next time they come around. This is one of my favorite songs of the year.
The Head and the Heart "Josh McBride" my favorite from the new album that they did not play at their show to my eternal disappointment.
Aoife O'Donovan "Glowing Heart" Love the album. Red and White and Blue and Gold was my summer song this year.
Little Green Cars - Big Red Dragon
I couldn't decide which song to share because I love, love, love so many of their songs. They were one of the best shows I saw this year. I loved their opening. I love that they invited the audience up on stage. I just love this band. Also listen to The Kitchen Floor, The John Wayne, Harper Lee, My Love Took Me Down to the River to Silence Me... listen to the whole album, people!
Dawes, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Such wonderful lyrics and a LA band with a soul. I caught a short set at KXT Summer Cut but would love to see a whole show. This is "Most People" but the entire album is solid.
Jason Isbell - Traveling Alone - a treasure and one of the best albums of the year. I know I'm repetitive but I love the albums of everyone I'm sharing with you. I won't say it again. Just know it.
Fuel the Fire by Sarah Jarosz. She is amazing!
Birds and Stars by Elephant Revival - One of the reasons I really want to go to the Old Settlers Festival next year. I just thought I would throw that out there. Of course, my friend was accused of being "mean" at their show. Too funny. Meanness at an Elephant Revival show - ridiculous!
I must, must, must see Steve Earle in 2014. He is just too cool. This is Love's Going to Blow my Way.
Oh so many more that I love. That's why I will never run out of things to post. I love so many songs. Have an awesome 2014 friends.
