Hi (I say, yet another month later lol)…I got to explain something. Sometimes I do have some time to write a new recommendation but I don’t because if I did, if it’s too close to the date of my last entry, it seems like it takes away the significance of the former and I just don’t want to do that. I’m thinking I really need to expand on my blog and not limit myself just to the recommendations (for some reason, that sentence made me – randomly – think of the episode of “Seinfeld” when George and Elaine are coming up with the exporting/importing “cover-up” for Susan…haha). Anyway, my class for this evening was put off until tomorrow night, so I’ve got some time and then back to work. Lately, I’ve been reading a lot from The 9513 and Country Universe and they inspired me to write another entry today…there’s always fun and thought-provoking conversations going on over at both sites.
My nineteenth recommendation is: Amber Dotson’s “I Ain’t Your Mama” from her 2005 I Ain’t Your Mama – Single album on iTunes. I don’t recall the first time I’ve heard this bluesy-n-gritty voice from Ms. Dotson. I think I slightly was familiar with her debut single (called “I’ll Try Anything” – a more contemporary traditional country tune) and I liked her. I remember that she opened for George Strait and I thought she’d make it big, but she never really went further (and I really can’t believe that was just ’05 I’m talking about…feels like long ago). I don’t think it was until I heard “I Ain’t Your Mama” that I really got more interested in Amber Dotson. Click here to read her bio and some interesting facts and answers.
