Getting drunk in the woods with some MeFites led to jokes about songs on a fictional country/bluegrass album called Keep On Stumpin', which led this afternoon to writing and recording the title track. Find a stump to dump the junk in your trunk on! [more inside]
An old Merle Travis song that I learned years ago when I first started getting into bluegrass. Another chance to break in the new resonator guitar, and do some fun chorus harmonies. [more inside]
Take Another Brick in the Wall parts 1, 2, and 3, jam 'em all into one quick bluegrass shitkicker, throw it into a major key, and you get this. [more inside]
Some rollicking bluegrass as a spoon to the heart of Bryan Adams, Kevin Costner, and basically that whole period of the early 90s. [more inside]

Let's call it EMOldtimey. Or, really, let's not. It's not a damned clean rendition, but with this old heartbreaker you don't have to be. My pre-verbal niece was purported to love it, and that's good enough for me.
By god, it's a bluegrass song! Thought of it because of this superlative Williams interpretation.
