#bluegrass

If you need to scratch your bluegrass itch, I can never recommend The Dead South enough. While most of their stuff is darker— I believe they call themselves gothic bluegrass— their Easy Listening for Jerks, Pt. 1 is classic bluegrass. Get hooked, then listen to some of their other stuff.

I love this Tyler Childers song, it’s harrowing words in the OurVinyl Session recording are just so raw and full of emotion. As we were heading out to grab food last night, this cover came on the bluegrass station. The words are just so good.

See, the ways of this world will just bring you to tears
Keep the Lord in your heart and you’ll have nothin’ to fear
Live the best that you can and don’t lie and don’t steal
Keep your nose on the grindstone and out of the pills

Keep in mind that a man’s just as good as his word
It takes twice as long to build bridges you’ve burnt
And there’s hurt you can cause time alone cannot heal
Keep your nose on the grindstone and out of the pills

Nose on the Grindstone by No Joke Jimmy’s

Keep the Lord in your heart and you’ll have nothin’ to fear. Just soak in that.
