Both Kinds of Music 2013 Holiday Gift Guide Part 1

Friends, with 14 days or so until Christmas, are you coming up short on gifts for the country music lover in your life? Or maybe your own list has a few holes in it. Fret not, I’ve scoured the internet and my own site to find great gifts. Remember, buy local or straight from the artist when you can. (In cases where I’ve linked to Amazon, I have an affiliate account which pays me a meager sum.)

  1. Johnny Cash Print by Drew Friedman - $175 - The classic illustrator respectfully renders the most classic country performer.
  2. What Whiskey Will Not Cure, There Is No Cure For Print by Andrew Le - $20 - A favorite poster among Both Kinds of Music fans. 
  3. Listen to Townes Van Zandt T-Shirt from Midnight Rider - $52 - Who doesn’t love the fine clothing Midnight Rider offers? I just found out last night that all their clothing is American made.
