This is Townes Van Zandt and Nanci Griffith singing "Tecumseh Valley" together. It is really interesting the way that Country music is subversive to an incredible extent in a non-comprehending innocent way very often of nearly all the values that the United States was founded upon and which it maintains to this day it's society by more or less.

Not many people in Ireland know who Townes Van Zandt is. I came across him by chance while reading a biography of Bob Dylan. Apparently Dylan was a big fan and owned all his records. He has loads of great songs - Waitin' round to die is a classic.
A lot of Ulster Prods know who he is. "Waiting around to die" indeed is amazing but he had so many other brilliant songs, "Pancho and Lefty" I think is better than "Waiting around to die" by far.

Ulster Prods clearly have good taste!

Ye Poncho and lefty is his best song. Apparently he wrote it in 10 minutes. The words just came to him and he wrote them down as quick as he could before the inspiration left him!

"If I needed you" is another nice one.

Guys - you're all so obviously polite and far less crude than I.

The only reason Dolly Parton's name keeps coming up on thread is because when you type in the word spelled c-u-n- t, the site software delivers you the term Dolly Parton fan, instead. As in: 'that's some shower of c*nts on P.ie' automatically translates into, yeah - you guessed it.

For what it's worth, this here's one of my personal favourite American country music singers.
Based in Nashville, she frequently uses Irish musicians on her tours and recordings.
Plus she's as tough as nails.
And this tune's mighty.

I really like this version of "cold cold heart" by Lucinda Williams:

He expected a prize once he hit the 100,000 posts submitted mark.

Have ye seen the proliferation of external Christmas lights in gardens this year?
At this stage many of them are faltering as the batteries run down.
Owners are reluctant to replace batteries in these things.

That sums up p.ie
