Saw the signature, Ralph Stanley...and had no idea who he was. Go to iTunes and buy the Very Best of Ralph Stanley if you are a bluegrass fan....great songs and amazing banjo picking. Thanks for the lead CYHs!
Please try to get Ryan Bingham to come on the CYH web chat! I was flipping through radio stations while visiting Austin and "Ain't No Son" was playing on the radio. I left the station on and his "Bread and Water" came on after......
His album, "Mescalito," is really good. If you could, tell us a little more about "Texas Country" and its' artists. I can't remember the radio station I was listening to down there but they played a lot of CYH, Robert Earl Keen, Ryan Bingham, etc....it was kind of like country music...only better!
I was extremely impressed by the SXSW artists at HEK. I haven't heard collaborations like that in a while and loved the line-up; especially Augustana and Tyler Lyle. Is there was anyway that I could pay for a copy of live recordings from those performances? I went to the artists' websites/itunes to buy their CD's (which do sound great and I bought some of them)...but they didn't capture that raw sound that was created at HEK studio. Also, the depth that Martie and Emily added through harmony and instrumentation was awesome!
