Song of the Day - Down Home Country Blues

"Now she ain't much for the bluegrass fiddle, she likes that bottleneck slide, a little kick with a lot of bottom and let the resonator take the ride..."

I sometimes get stuck in a rut of listening to only new songs on my iTunes, but this weekend I kept it on shuffle and found lots of hidden treasures like this. Ray Wylie Hubbard is one of the original Red Dirt badasses that I don't ever listen to enough. I love music about music and if you listen close or look up the lyrics you might can learn a little. And this ain't your typical name-dropping song either.
