My day is going to be a bit rushed - so I'm going to jump right in and post this morning's Music City Monday shuffle - 'cause it's a great one! Minimal descriptions due to time - but check out the video playlist, and if you hear something you like - buy the music!
"Backside" by Walk the West
Walk the West have become a staple of Music City Monday. They were always a favorite to see live. This is one of favorite songs from their self-titled album.
"Empty Vase" by Promised Land Sound
Next, up Twangy psyche rockers - Promised Land Sound going back to their 2013 self-titled debut album.
"Devil Wind" by The Cactus Brothers
Twenty years earlier - Walk the West spin-off group The Cactus Brothers from their debut album.

Original Nashville punk rockers - The Bunnies with another track from The Return to Elliston Square Live album from 2008. Band lead by long-time Nashville resident Donna Frost.
"Alpha Male and the Canine Mystery Blood" by Tommy Womack
From There I Said It - one of my favorite songs ever - the stream-of-consciousness ode to a band name and aging and mortality and more.
"Bloody Town of Thieves" by Chris Gantry
Chris Gantry is truly a living legend among Nashville songwriters. Active since the 1960s - where he penned songs for a who's who of Country Music legends. Gantry is still active today. This is a track from his 2016 Nashville Rhapsody.
"Intro/Whistle Blow" by David Olney, Sergio Webb, and Jack Irwin
Speaking of legends - David Olney, Sergio Webb, and Jack Irwin Live from Norm's River Road House. The introduction of these greats along with one of my favorite David Olney songs.
"A Lot of People" by Griffin Winton
And, we close things out with our first listen to Griffin Winton's brand new album I'm Not Trying to Flirt With You or Anything. I am so looking forward to see Griffin playing with The Big Dumb as they play their own set and back up Rayvon Pettis - one month from today at the opening night of the E2TG 7th Anniversary Residency!
