FMD — Country Gals Kick Ass

Sarah Shook, Nikki Lane, Courtney Marie Andrews... we are living in fine times when it comes to the ladies who know how to belt out a country song or two. If you haven't, I'd strongly suggest you check out Sarah Shook's new album (and Nikki Lanes and CMA's).

Drop your lists..

    6. As much as people joke about Part I, Part II is the much more "difficult" section of the work, with these snippets of Brother Walter's speech looped:

    Couldn’t open the door
    Oh Noah!
    They cried
    Just open the door
    Couldn’t open the door

  4. I guess I'll check out the Shook album. I've gotten some emails from Bloodshot telling me about it and your note here will probably put me over the top.

  5. I totally forgot that there was a new Sarah Shook coming out. Finding out it was out was pretty awesome news. I'll have to listen to it next week when I'm back at my desk at work.
