Via someone’s facebook post, I clicked this more out of boredom or procrastination rather than interest, and was audibly giggling in my seat at work. Maybe you need a 1 year old to really appreciate it, but hopefully not.
On the topic of Sturgill covers, I thought I would keep it going because I got this song stuck in my head doing that last post.
Man, Sturgill can do a cover. And as good of a guitarist as he is, when he was touring with Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, the Estonian country shredding guitarist was always mentioned. This cover Listening to the Rain (originally by the Osborne Brothers) featured that guitarist pretty well.
Can’t really hit the high notes, but still a pretty good cover.
He can really do a cover. In addition to all the covers on his albums, I love his cover of I Never Go Around Mirrors.
In other Sturgill Simpson info, he did an extensive interview with Steven Hyden about frustrations with the music business and (this might be the writer speculating more than Sturgill) that he might not want to tour after this current tour.
Apparently it’s St. Patricks day?! I’m kinda surprised I haven’t posted these songs before. (Previous St. Paddy posts/songs from 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008) They are definitely not on Spotify. My favorite two songs off the album. Can You Hear The Rangers Sing / Sean South has definitely the go-to Irish song thanks to Brendan. Here are some mp3s:
