Arguably, this is a country song. It skews a little more toward Americana than the pop-country-crap all the country stations play. I’ve been hearing it on CBC Radio 2’s pop shows lately, and I’m really impressed. Today, it even made me c… er, feel things.
In a just world, he’d be a a huge hit, unchanged from what he is now.
If you want to check him out in a truly indie way, his recordings are on Bandcamp.
