Eliza Gilkyson - Your Town Tonight

For this hump day party I’m dragging out the table and chairs with bbq sandwiches and limed iced tea to watch the sun set as this beautiful CD plays all the way through. There’s just no way I can pick out one or two songs as a taste of this 7 course dinner. As it cools down out comes the wine. Folk flavored tastes of dreams and schemes leaning with a slightly country flavor. I’ll put on a sliver of Dark Side Of Town on the podcast, but you’ll really want to take in this whole album in a full setting for your personal pleasure. Share it outdoors – the neighbors will not get their shotguns outta the pick-up truck with music this lovely filling the air. Shoutout for Tender Mercies & Jokerman, whose meaning grows each time I hear it. Eliza Gilkyson
