The music is great, but it was the lyrics that grabbed us. And when we heard this verse--
I'm not from here, but people tell me--well, we were completely hooked.
it's not like it used to be.
They say I shoulda been here
back about ten years
before it got ruined by folks like me.
And so, James McMurtry is well represented in the music library at Birch Street Radio. In fact, we have to put a cap on how many times he appears in a day's playlist!
His most recent album, 2015's "Complicated Game," was called a "New Americana Masterpiece" by Rolling Stone.
We hope you enjoy hearing him in the Marvelous Mix on Birch Street Radio. When he starts to sing - be sure to listen to the words!
