Routes and Branches Play List 04/11/09

In Honor of Merle Hagard turning 72 this past week, I made him the feature artist on this week's show. Merle Hagard was one of the first country style artists that I started listening to as a teenager. I always liked him for his songs like "Mama Tried" and "Workin' Man Blues", to his Honky Tonk songs and of course "Okie From Muskogee".
Speaking of old timers, JJ Cale put on a great show last weekend to a sold out crowd at the WOW Hall. With a show made up of mostly classics with a couple of tunes from his new CD "Roll On" mixed in, JJ showed us he still could rock.

New music keeps rollin' in these days. A couple of local mentions are; The Whopner County Country Allstars new CD "It's To Loud" and "Destinations" the new CD by the local Americana band Sideroads. Editors Note: I said that Sideroads would be at the Saturday Market next week (4/18), that is incorrect. The correct date is Saturday 4/25 at 2:00pm.
