I can't stop listening to First Aid Kit help they are in my dreams.

I'm also pretty excited for the new Avett Brothers in a few weeks. I had a chance to see them live a while back and I missed it and I regret it a lot.

If you haven't already picked it up, Living For A Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran is pretty good. It scratches the run-down jukebox in a dive bar itch like no album I've listened to in a long time. Plus it has an amazing lineup: Alison Krauss, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Willie Nelson, and some others.

If you want a solid CD of songs about lost love and hard drinkin' you could do a lot worse.

Here's the Alison Krauss song on Letterman

I love you Alison Krauss. Even though your last CD was kind of crummy.

I never seriously listened to country before but I grew up around the sound of it thanks to my dad and I really dig it, especially the sound of Southern girls.

So, I'm looking for recommendations on that front.
I'm hooked on Neko Case thanks to this thread, so far.

But, I'm looking for a more traditional country/americana sound.
Southern girls, huh? Have you heard any First Aid Kit? I posted about them earlier in this very thread actually but I cannot recommend them enough.

Why didn't anyone tell me about Caitlin Rose until I started reading best of the year lists?
