Note: if you want to know what this is all about check out my intro post…
I have been following the work of Whitey Morgan for a couple of years and he's got a new album out, Sonic Ranch, that is one of the best new things I have heard this year. I like that he's got that old school Waylon Jennings / 70s Outlaw country feel and his Michigan roots appeal to me. His music is what I want to put in the hands of everyone who laments that the modern country has become so pop and bland... anyway you can check him out here
so as with the rest of the posts in this series if I was able to sit down and plan out a cover's album with Whitey here is the songs I would bring to the table...
