Routes & Branches 5/5/12

 It is Spring time and the new releases are blooming. This week I'm really liking new CD's from Grant Peeples, who's "Prior Convictions" have made some music that matters. Also on this week's favorites list is the new Hank Williams III album "Long Gone Daddy". The lead title track, a remake of his Grandfather's "I'm A Long Gone Daddy" makes me feel like he is channeling his Grandfathers ghost.
I'm also liking Portland artist Dan Weber who's "Hank & Jesus" tune is also related to Hank Williams Sr.

The press sheet that came with John Fullbright's new disc "From The Ground Up" had a recommendation on it from James McMurtry so I knew that this was going to be good. In the second hour I went into "Rehab" with New Country Rehab along with a track from  J P Harris & The Tough Choices who we number one on the FAR charts this month. And I finished up with Chelle Rose's new Cd "Ghost Of Browder Holler" which was produced by Ray Wylie Hubbard and one from Hubbard's latest "The Grifter's Hymnal".
