January 29, 2018By ChrisMusic No Comments

Stapleton and Simpson Live on SNL

January 28, 2018By ChrisMusic No Comments

Hell Yeah Love that Stapleton not only let Sturgill Simpson play, but play lead, and take a verse. Sturgill made an already dirty, raging blues rocker…dirtier and raging-ier.

January 23, 2018By ChrisMusic 2 Comments

Good idea? Bad idea? KLSK (Albuquerque NM), in 1991, was switching formats. They decided to play Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway To Heaven” for 24 hours. The new format would be classic rock. Just in case you couldn’t figure that out. “Stairway” plays more than 200 times. Strange reactions. 100s of angry calls and letters. A listener … Read More

Hailey Knox “Don’t Got One”

January 18, 2018By ChrisMusic No Comments
