Good call on Townes. This is an obvious choice but I've always loved it:
Probably A Satisfied Mind, because that's something I strive for.
That changes over time. Currently:
Thank you for posting this. I love this song, too. I first heard McGraw and Faith's cover and thought, "Wow, that's a real country song." It's very well produced and Tim delivered a great vocal on it.
But then I heard Bruce & Kelly's version and it broke my heart.
I cite the two versions of this song when I try to explain the differences between Nashville and Texas country music.
I've always heard/known of Townes have never seen footage. I'm intrigued and off to see what else there is of him online
One of my dad's favorites, the Texas Troubadour himself:
I don’t think I have a favorite anything, whatever it might be I can probably think of others I like just as much, or in different ways that aren’t really comparable.
So for this I’ll go with one of my favorites, that I don’t think has been mentioned yet. Okay, two, see what I mean?
It was already mentioned on page one, but here's another version of Why You Been Gone So Long.
Something by Hank Sr.
That guy was IT.
Just pure emotion poured out on a vinyl platter.
Love most old school country.
Waylon Willie Johnny and Merle.
But most all of it comes from Hank.
Pain and sorrow and story telling.
Old Town Road
Townies van Zandt's Pancho and Lefty, in all its forms: original, Emmy Lou, Hoyt Axton, Willie and Merle. Just a well crafted, heart tugging song.
whatever you would like broski - post em' up
hahaha, one of my Dad's fave's too! good stuff
This has been a favorite since I first heard it in the early 1960s. Still like to play it.
There are too many to name.
I suppose I'll default to this one...
Until I left TX a month ago, I was in a country band that did that song. And it still fills the dance floor. At least in TX. Tubb's band in the '60s had some great players.
Sing me back home.
