Can’t believe I hadn’t heard of this. Tom T. Hall wrote the title track w/ ‘Ode to Billie Joe’ as a reference (it’s great). Jeannie C. Riley’s delivery is so fun to listen to. The twang is sinewy. ‘The Ballad of Louise’ is tender, heartbroken revenge:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBx3U34mB5g  #MWE https://t.co/d03w6L0z7Q
Patty Loveless rules. “I Try to Think About Elvis” is such a boogie. “Feelin’ Good About Feelin’ Bad” is a badass honky-tonk kiss-off. It’s tough to hear the heartache of “You Don’t Even Know Who I Am” without getting teary-eyed:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sooj4abUDg4  #MWE. https://t.co/GisCjDZWUz
Killer collection of bluegrass-bent tunes for 2/22 #MWE. The ‘Landslide’ take adds welcome twang, but FM still reigns supreme. Everyone knows ‘Travelin’ Soldier’ (for good reason). ‘Tortured, Tangled Hearts’ sounds like wide open, blue sky country to me:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb3huviLPPw  https://t.co/N838iUTQwQ
Wonder Wonder is flooring—the songs so thoughtfully arranged and vivid. Weird, too: ’The Fear’ is carnival creepy. I’ll admit I hadn’t heard of Edith Frost before I started researching for #MWE, but I’m so happy I have now. ‘Honey Please’ is so damn sweet.  https://www.allmusic.com/album/wonder-wonder-mw0000006493  https://t.co/bY8sbyAGV5
