It's Blowing In West Texas

Just a small look out my window

now go forth and experience the adventurous joyful mysterious world of songwriting worn like an albatross around the neck till judgement day

Kelly Willis (with Bruce Robison): Not Forgotten You

Slightly obsessed with this song.

americansongwriter:

Song Premiere: Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis, “Border Radio”
Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis will celebrate Valentine’s Day a little early. After pursuing their own careers for more than fifteen years — he’s written #1 hits for George Straight and the Dixie Chicks, and she’s released a string of solo albums — they’ve banded together for Cheater’s Game, a collaborative album that comes out on February 12.
Cheater’s Game is split between original songs and rootsy covers, including tunes originally sung by Hayes Carll, Don Williams and Robert Earl Keen. One of the highlights is a breezy version of The Blasters’ “Border Radio,” where the married couple trades harmonies over acoustic guitars, lap steel, mandolin, and a ranchero-influenced chord progression.

@RodneyJCrowell rips off fragments of his soul, rhymes them, lays ‘em in a country blues rock groove, sings righteous and drips cool. Yep.
