Barbi Benton - Brass Buckles

While I knew the former Playboy model was a regular on Hee Haw, I didn’t know she also sang/recorded country music.

This gem reached the top 5 in 1975.

"She outgrew brass buckles on her shoes. By 12 she was fillin’ out her jeans."

Different times.

BR5-49 - Better Than This

The boys played this tonight on their Music City Roots appearance and as I sang along, was reminded of what a great song it is and why I thought they were the undisputed country band to see live back in the day.

I don’t know where or how I found out about Linda Hargrove, but she’s definitely an unsung country treasure from the 1970.

All you denim & outdoors lovers should embrace this and spread it around.

Valerie June and the Tennessee Express - Raindance

Did you know Valerie June teamed up with Old Crow Medicine Show for an EP back in 2010? Me neither.

Valerie bills her music as “Organic Moonshine Roots”. She owns a unique voice that will perk up your ears and stick with you. Prior to her label debut from 2013, Pushin’ Against A Stone, she released two self-produced albums and two collaborations - the one above, plus The Wandering - Go On Now You Can’t Stay Here, which also featured Amy LaVere, Shannon McNally, Luther Dickinson and Sharde Thomas.¬†
