Classic Country Rock
Since then I have been listening to a deeper variety of each of their music. My favorite Willie album remains "Red Headed Stranger" and I do prefer to listen to Kris's songs that are done by someone else (hey, he never claimed to be a good singer but, man, can that guy write a song!). Merle Haggard is more country than I'm used to but I just love his irreverent songs like "Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink" or "Living With the Shades Pulled Down."
It's amazing how many songs these men share, covering each other back and forth, performing songs written and previously performed by each other. Each man brings his own flavor to their covers so it's very interesting to listen and compare.
I've gotta say though that "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down" is probably the only song written by Kris and sung by Kris that I prefer to anyone else's version.
The Central Library will close early at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 10 to prepare for the Booklovers Ball. More...
