I was pleased to discover the Civil Wars Unplugged special. Being a now, Alabama resident I shouldn't admit this but, I'm all about being honest. I have never listened to the Civil Wars. *GASP* I know! I can truthfully tell you the only song I've heard of theirs includes Taylor Swift and it was from the Hunger Games soundtrack.
Let's just say I ran to do the dishes, and then would run back in when they started a song, and I probably rewound the show about 6 times during the course of the 25 minutes I was able to catch. I'm officially hooked. Kudos to John Paul White for working Megadeath into the set twice... not music mind you, but by stating their names. Apparently he's a big metal fan. Score!
You may be wondering what the deal is with the title of this blog. Well, there is another folksy white boy that I've always had a crush on, and that is Jack White from The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather. He's done SO many other side projects too. He's quite frankly the cats pajamas in my book.
Hurray for new music - next stop, I need to get my ass to the record store and purchase the Alabama Shakes CD. I put it back in order to purchase a Dio CD and while I have no regrets I can't get the AL Shakes out of my head.
