She asked if I’d ever been to Nashville, and I had to admit I had, but that I’d failed to find the heart of the place and that my own tastes veered more to the Americana side of things. “What does that word even mean?” she asked. “And what’s wrong with country? Come to Nashville and I’ll show you the good stuff.” “I might just have to do that,” I replied?

The writer is not me. It’s from a piece in The Independent…the subject of the piece? Caitlin Rose. What a great reply.

Want to hear more stuff like that? I certainly do. I’ll give her every opportunity  on Friday night when she’ll be our live guest on Another Country. Later that night she’ll be opening for Deer Tick over at The Captain’s Rest. If you have to miss the show then you have my blessing to be at that gig.

Lest we forget, we will re cap on our Movie Club’s movie of the month, “Walk The Line.” On the Facebook page you can suggest your favourite song from the soundtrack. I’d also be interested to hear your thoughts on the film here in the blog. Stay tuned too on Friday when I’ll tell you about the Another Country Movie Club going large…as the young people say.

But that’s not all……

We’ll have a world exclusive when we hear  Gurf Morlix’s version of Clay Pigeons. Gurf’s going to be at the Glasgow Americana Festival (don’t tell Caitlin about that one!) when he kicks off the festival on October 10th.

More…oh yes. New music from The Duke and The King, Delta Spirit, Jim Jones Revue and…..

Le Noise was produced by Dan Lanois and recorded by my good friend Mark Howard. I love it. It’s worth the price and your two hour time commitment just to hear Hitchhiker. On Friday night from 8, you will.
