The Hardcore Troubadour releases his third album on October 17, 1988. Rolling Stone calls it “power twang.”  Earle calls it “the world’s first blend of heavy metal and bluegrass.”

Sheryl Crow 

Sheryl Crow releases her sophmore album — and my favorite — on September 24, 1996.

Unlike her debut album, this one is all hers — written and produced by her and her alone.

It includes “Redemption Day,” a song that Johnny Cash took a fancy to and recorded just before he passed away. Sheryl included it on her latest release, “Threads” as a duet and it’s a damn show-stopper.
