From a timing standpoint, this tune seems appropriate – Whiskeytown’s great “16 Days”.
I love when that song kicks into the “old tin cups” part.

Hell yes, Whiskeytown is outstanding!
Also a fan of a lot of Ryan Adams solo stuff (Jacksonville City Night, Gold, Cold Roses) even though I know he can be a jerk and is easy to dislike.
Ryan Adams is a douchebag… Seriously. He is
He’s also made some great albums.
Agreed. On both accounts.
Pre-hair gel Ryan Adams is good stuff.
I can’t believe you posted a Whiskeytown song here Senator. Great stuff. I got all RA’s musi. True, he never wrote a song he didn’t like, but man that dude could write some classics. Especially during his Whiskeytown days.
Once I think you can’t get any cooler Senator, you continue to surprise.

+1 Scott W that was great Senator !
Its a good day when my favorite blog blends with one of my favorite artists. (Sigur Ros and Count Basie being two others…yea, I’m weird).
Sure Ryan Adams is a dick, but hey, he wrote a song called Tennessee Sucks. And it ain’t that bad:
I think it is required tailgate music every year for the Vols.
And at the risk of being presumptuous, I request this song as the musical palate cleanser the week of the Vols.
