Hello hello – I am back. Since the blog site change, I have noticed that some of the older post entries have small font and I have no idea why that is (must be a html thing), but if you click on the title of the entry, the font is the normal size and readable. I actually was planning on making a new entry (#21) last week but I got held up with something else (college will do that to ya haha) and I did had some new ideas, but with the little feedback I receive from guests, I don’t have total motivation to write new entries more often lol (so, if you do read this blog, and want more, then comment so I know you exist! Thanks!). I also updated my links area with some new cool sites, and added stars next to my two most favorites (Country Universe and The 9513 ), but those other sites are really sweet too, so check them out.
My twenty-first recommendation is: Pinmonkey’s “I Drove All Night” from their 2002 Pinmonkey album. I’ve been wanting to use them for quite a while, like I mentioned in my old Dixie Chicks recommendation entry from 2007, and I thought it was time to utilize a group again. I first heard Pinmonkey (a group who got their name from a Simpsons episode when Homer worked at the bowling alley place haha) when their debut country radio single came out years back, called “Barbed Wire & Roses” , which was full of bluegrass soul and harmonies, and was pretty damn catchy. Some people – like my sister – commented that the male lead singer, Michael Reynolds, sorta sounds like a woman (a la Mary Chapin Carpenter or something), but I disagree because I never thought that lol. Anyway, when I heard this group, I was really interested in them and their music, so when “I Drove All Night” came out, I was pretty much sold (so yeah, “…Drove…” was their second radio single, if it sounded familiar).
