Tupelo Honey Playlist 11/9/10

Every radio show I try to include at least one song from the past that gives an idea of where this genre came from. Kind of my way of honoring the founding fathers of Americana.

However, its hard not to notice that the heyday of Americana isn't some time in the past, it's right now! There's more bands churning out this music then ever before. And, more of them doing a damn good job of it. Every sub genre of modern Americana has a current artist doing it as good or better then anyone in the past. I put up a picture of American Aquarium, a band doing alt-country rock as good as anything I've ever heard.
