WTF? When did 2012 get here?!
Posted: January 7, 2012
Damn, and I was doing so well with posting about once a week. Then “life” happened. Had to start doing more baby stuff (healthy baby boy born 11/11/11 BTW) and I just plain ran out of time (or forgot) to update this ol blog thingy.
SO my goal is to not fall behind on posting stuff on here. Whether it’s just something small and random OR something meaningful and uplifting… like how to make the perfect PB&J (PB on both pieces of bread is the key.)
Figure I’ll kick off the new year with my thoughts on the best Texas/Red Dirt CD’s of 2011. There were a lot of great ones and I know I’ll upset someone if I leave them out, if so, my apologies.
The only one I’ll give a number to is what I believe was the absolute best album of the year. To me, it just didn’t get any better than Whiskey Myers “Firewater.”….
The rest of my list will just go in alphabetical order of albums I strongly suggest you get if you haven’t already.
Adam Hood – The Shape of Things
Brandon Rhyder – Live At Billy Bobs Texas
Casey Donahew Band – Double Wide Dream
Foster & Lloyd – It’s Already Tomorrow
Granger Smith – Poets & Prisoners
Jason Boland & The Stragglers – Rancho Alto
John David Kent – John David Kent
Kevin Fowler – Chippin’ Away
Kyle Park – Make or Break Me
Reckless Kelly – Good Luck & True Love
Rosehill – White Lines & Stars
Ryan Beaver – Constant
Zack Walther – Into The Fray
I know there are a ton of other CD’s that came out and if I didn’t list one, it doesn’t mean I didn’t like it, this just happened to be my favorites of the favorites of the year. They each have something special and unique about them that set them apart from other things. Give them a listen and get ready for a great 2012 with Roger Creager, Pat Green, and many others ready to release CD’s this year!
