townes van zandt.
i've been making fun of my buddy for liking country music. but its very clear that i just don't understand it. some of my facorite musicans are bob dylan, woody gutherie and johnny cash. but they aren't like the typical country guys of today.
neither is this man, townes van zandt. an amazing songwriter with a cult following. i was introduced to his work when steve earle released a album of covers.
There was a critically acclaimed documentary based upon his turbulent life. we're talking like a 93% fresh rating on rotten tomatoes. Here is the trailer.
