DAC

You want outlaw country? I’ll give you outlaw county … DAC. (born September 6, 1939)

 

“Let there be harmony, let there be fun, and 12 notes of music to make us all one.”

His politics got a little wonky for me in the latter days, but I’ve been diggin’ the CDB since college when Charlie Daniels introduced me to “southern rock.” I was hooked. I met him doing a interview a few years later and I was at his induction into the Grand Ol’ Opry on January 19, 2008. Charlie Daniels WAS the genuine article. Rest easy.

Willie Nelson’s ‘First Rose of Spring’ Another Bouquet from the Master

With First Rose of Spring, Willie Nelson’s studio album tally is up to 16 — for the last decade alone. (It’s 70 overall — so far.) Lately, they’ve started rolling into one another, like points along a continuum rather than discrete entities. But even though his last few releases have been thematically similar — he’s been ruminating about mortality, loss and life in the rear view for some time now — they’re each worth savoring as genuine pearls of musical wisdom, delivered by our most revered sage of country Zen.
