when I lived in dallas in the early 80s, I knew this gal who would get drunk and play that damned song, over & over & over I know what you mean though. I watched that country festival on axs tv [Indio California], and the only acts that I didnt fast forward threw was, Don Williams, Charley Pride, and Dwight Yoakam, the rest was all crap to me the guy from hootie & the blowfish was the headliner????? he sounded like the blwfish with a fiddle , come on now!.

Eh? I'm more of the Fast Train To Georgia type myself ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdYzVFClHyg ).

I do agree with the sentiment regarding Oklahoma, Thoughts & Prayers to our Brothers & Sisters dealing with Mutha Nature out there.

I'd love a station dedicated to cranking uptempo country, like some Albert Lee "Country Boy" Vince Gill pickin' lively stuff from all eras.

Thank you! My sentiments exactly.

At least they could play some brother Lee Roy from time to time...

Alison Krauss on Dave Evans - "I think Dave Evans and Paul Rogers come from the same place. You know? I remember when I heard Dave Evans the first time in Indiana at a festival and he's up there singing and I'm like, ‘My goodness!' It gives me the same feeling to watch Paul Rogers and Free as to watch Dave Evans. Or you might want to say vice versa—watching Dave Evans is the same thing as watching Paul Rogers. Ralph Stanley, it's the same thing. Passionate singing, it doesn't really matter which genre of music it comes from. It does the same thing. It brings out, it inspires you in whatever thoughts you're having."


Dave Evans...the real damn deal....singing Tom T. Hall's "Pretty Green Hills".....in the sweet pretty green hills of Eastern Kentucky at Rudyfest last year.... read the words as you listen...awesome!!

PRETTY GREEN HILLS

By: Tom T. Hall and Dixie Hall

PRETTY GREEN HILLS, PRETTY GREEN HILLS
HE SAID, 'TAKE ME INTO THEM PRETTY GREEN HILLS'

HE STOOD AT THE CROSSROADS, WHERE HIS BUS HAD LEFT HIM
A BATTERED OLD SUITCASE SAT THERE BY HIS SIDE
I SAW IN THE DISTANCE A RAINSTORM BREWING
I PULLED OFF THE HIGHWAY AND GAVE HIM A RIDE

I GOT OUT TO HELP HIM CLIMB INTO MY PICKUP
I COVERED THAT SUITCASE WITH A TARP IN THE BACK
WELL, HE HUFFED AND HE PUFFED AS HE GOT HIMSELF SETTLED
HE SAID, 'I GOT OLD AND I'M DOWN IN MY BACK'

HIS BEARD WAS ALL WHITE AND HIS FACE, IT WAS WRINKLED
HE SAID 'I WAS BORN HERE,' AND THEN HE GREW STILL
I ASKED HIM HOW FAR HE WAS PLANNING ON GOING
HE SAID, 'TAKE ME INTO THEM PRETTY GREEN HILLS'

PRETTY GREEN HILLS, PRETTY GREEN HILLS
HE SAID TAKE ME INTO THEM PRETTY GREEN HILLS

HE SAT THERE AND HE SMILED, AND STARED OUT THE WINDOW
THE CORN WAS KNEE HIGH AND THE FIELDS WERE ALL GREEN
HE NEVER SAID MUCH BUT HIS FACE TOLD A STORY
I LEFT HIM ALONE WITH HIS OWN PRIVATE DREAMS

I KEPT ON DRIVING AND HE KEPT ON SMILING
WE DROVE UP THROUGH THE HILLS OF HIS YOUTH
I ASKED HIM, 'DO YOU HAVE SOME KINFOLK AROUND HERE?"
HE SAID, 'I DON'T THINK SO, TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH'


I STOPPED AT A STORE, GETTING READY TO CLOSE
I ASKED THAT OLD STRANGER IF HE NEEDED SOMETHING
BUT HE WAS ASLEEP, I JUST LET HIM DOZE

I FILLED UP MY OLD TRUCK AND I FOUND I WAS HUNGRY
I BOUGHT US SOME BOLOGNA AND COLD DRINKS AND BREAD
WENT BACK TO MY TRUCK TO SHAKE THAT OLD STRANGER
BUT I SOON DISCOVERED, THE OLD MAN WAS DEAD

SO I CALLED THE SHERIFF AND THEY TOOK HIM SOMEWHERE
I HAD TO KEEP ROLLING, CAUSE WE ALL GOT OUR BILLS
A COUPLE WEEKS LATER, SOMEBODY TOLD ME
THEY BURIED HIM UNDER THEM PRETTY GREEN HILLS

And I gots to follow it up with "Highway 52,"
