"My mother taught me three chords..."

"...and the rest I just stole as I went along. I learned everything by ear or by watching people."

That, my friends, is James McMurtry! He's one of the best singer/songwriters to come out of Texas in the last couple decades, and he put on a very good show a couple weeks ago at the Alladin Theater (I'm a bit late in posting this, I know, buy hey...). Many thanks to John Mellencamp for "dicovering" this guy! He just blew each and every one of us in the Alladin away that night.

Bernie Sanders (D, VT) is currently using McMurtry's recent protest song in his campaign. Do check it out, it's pretty good!
