Best laid plans... I started this like I do every day. I had a dental appointment at 11:30, and I planned to take the rest of the day off work. I hoped to make it home by like 2 or something, and I was going to finish this post and do a bunch of other things. Well, I just got home around 8:00pm. But, this was such I good shuffle that I didn't want to let it go without posting it.
So, my written contribution will be minimal but enjoy.
"Night School" by Rosanne Cash

"Help There's a Fire" (Shakespeare's Riot Version) by Jason Ringenberg

E2TG favorites Adrian + Meredith (veteran's of my 5th Anniversary show) are up next with a great song from their album More Than a Little. Looking forward to new music from those kids soon.
"Punk Rock Girl" by Josh Gray
The first time I saw Josh Gray, I was impressed by his original songs, and then he did his unique take on the Dead Milkmen song - one of my favorites - and I knew I found a kindred spirit. This is from his self-titled six song released from 2015.
"Stars on the Water" by Rodney Crowell
Next up, we have the lead track from the self-titled 1981 third album by the legendary Rodney Crowell.
