Also on this episode, cowpunk from Cory Branan, alt-folk from Shakey Graves, a beautiful Townes VanZandt cover by Kathleen Grace, heartland rock by Lachlan Bryan and the Wildes, country rock from the Old 97’s, boogie blues from Elvin Bishop, rockabilly from Tammy Lynn and Myles High, and some meltdown blues from Gary Clark Jr.
