well im heading off to craven today... if you dont know what that is, you should be ashamed. 96 beer in 5 days of none stop drinking and partying. i'll be back. google it if youre not sure. be jealous.
Finally "bought" the entire Eric Church "Sinners Like Me" album. I had heard most of the songs before, but it's a great album that flows really well.
Truth... It is my favorite album, and it isn't that close. All the songs are amazing, and like you say, they flow well, some will almost lead you in to another, and then there are two in a row that show so much contrast and compliment eachother (i.e. "Pledge Allegiance to the Hag" followed by "Two Pink Lines") I have his second album as well, and it has those same qualities, though it isn't as good as what "Sinners Like Me" was for him, IMO, but that is tough to follow up with. It is a favorite of mine as well. I have yet to find an Eric Church song I will skip over. He is one of the few, if not only, artists that has never been skipped over by me.
The name of the second album is "Carolina", if you didn't know already, and that song is great as well. i mentioned it before, but it is such a good song that it deserves being mentioned again, as is the case with all Eric Church songs.
I think that's why I like them so much. I don't really like mainstream country. I'm considering going to buffalo for the avett brothers concert. Only a 6 and a half hour drive for a free concert
The more I've listened to music, the more I enjoy the "search" for music. I'd much rather listen to someone new who hasn't been heard of, or an up and comers earliest recordings (where they were still working on their sound, even) or basically anything you don't hear on the radio. I enjoy mainstream stuff a whole lot, but anything outside of it, if I enjoy it, it seems I get so much more enjoyment than from well-established artists. It is why I like Eric Church, Jack Ingram (he's beginning to be more recognized), The Eli Young Band (They will be big soon, I promise you), The Randy Rogers Band, Cross Canadian Ragweed (one of my favorite groups), and others so much more than guys like George Strait (weird saying it), Dierks Bently, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, and other mainstream artists.
