Jay’s Monday Jams
The weather FINALLY is looking up. I've got a little sunburn on my nose from hanging in the sun, and its bittersweet. It hurts just a little, but that means summer is on the way. Summer means concerts and new country music, so here are some jams to kick off the week and nice weather.
Brothers Osborne just dropped their new album "Port Saint Joe" and its absolutely amazing. I have never listened to an album front to back this many times in a weekend. From beginning to end, this album is a masterpiece. Their song "Tequila Again" is quickly becoming one of my favorite songs ever. The mandolin and storytelling is just amazing.
ACM Entertainer of the Year Jason Aldean has done it again. "Rearview Town" is another collection of tunes from him that hit just in time for summer. Its full of great driving tunes and some really heartfelt songs. "Gettin' Warmed Up" is the quintessential Jason Aldean song. Its guitar driven and uses his distinct singing style to help get the party started.
Talking with Rodney Atkins this past Friday, we got on the topic of his new music. I questioned him about some of his lyrics, specifically about a John Deere green lyrics. I had assumed it was an ode to Joe Diffie, and I was close. Our conversation remind me of this jam and I knew it had to be my throwback.
