Routes & Branches 7-28-12

The end of the month again and time to pick this month's favorite new CD's for the Freeform American Roots Chart (FAR Chart). My picks for this month are as follows:
1) Old Crow Medicine Show: Carry Me Back

2)VA: Kin; Songs By Mary Karr & Rodney Crowell
3) Mack Evans: Pawn Shop Guitar
4) James Luther Dickinson & North Mississippi Allstars: I'm Just Dead, I'm Not Gone
5) Elizabeth Cook: Gospel Plow
6) Woody Guthrie: Woody At 100

I really like the new Old Crow Medicine Show CD "Carry Me Back". I think that it is their best album to date. With songs like "Bootlegger's Boy" and "Country Gal" OCMS will have you "Steppin' Out" on  a "Mississippi Saturday Night". What's not to like??
