Tupelo Honey Playlist 1/18/11

As usual the year ends, I pick my favorite songs, and then I discover a bunch of music that should have been in my "Best Of" lists.

Two songs I've found in the last week certainly would have made my Best Songs of 2010. First is Austin Collins "Can't Say This At Home." Just a great tune. The other is Jeff Martin's "Song In My Head." Jeff's tune would have ended up in the top 5 and potentially made a run at number one. The whole album also would have made my list of 2010's best discs. Jeff is from Eugene and marks a strong trend of excellent Americana coming out of my backyard. Eugene's Tyler Fortier and Cottage Grove's The Harmed Brothers both had outstanding albums that I seriously considered when picking the best of 2010. Nice to know the music I love and the town I love are merging.
