C'mon Through Carolina
So...here's a new feature we're gonna try 'round these parts. We make no guarantee how often we're gonna do it, nor are we gonna apologize if we end up doing it quite a bit. So, there's that.
For lack of a better title, we're gonna call it "The Greatest Song Ever Written (At Least For Today)" Catchy, innit? Essentially, while we're listening to rekkids or whatnot, a song'll catch our ear and cause us to dance around the place like an idjit, or maybe just sit back, sip a whiskey and revel in the sadness or the beauty or the sheer brilliance. Any number of reasons, really, why a tune will strike our fancy. Maybe it just makes us laugh. And maybe the song doesn't really ask for any more explanation than to be heard. So, these will be, ideally, short 'n' sweet. Let the song be the post, as it were. As ever, we encourage ya'll to support the artists involved.
Our first entry is a ragged and glorious little stomper from the mighty American treasure, Tom House. The song is a ragin' barnburner, and just wait 'til the got-damn fiddles kick in. You'll be hollerin' down yr hallway, kickin' in doors and swingin' off the stars!
