Prairie music

I'm enjoying the "country" channel I set up on Pandora tremendously. It's playing a bunch of singers and bands I'd never heard of who are good, playing a bunch of Son Volt tunes off Wide Swing Tremolo that make me want to buy it even more, and proving to me that I have Lone Justice and 'Til Tuesday hopelessly confused.

On the other hand, Steve Earle is definitely not my can of Lone Star. When you cover "Before They Make Me Run," you ought to stop and consider whether you can sing or play guitar better than Keith Richards. Earle's version is epic fail, since his voice is far worse than Keef's and he can't play the guitar near as well. OTOT, I'd pay good money to hear Adrian Belew cover that tune. He'd rock the house, I have no doubt.
