Verrrry interesting! Girlyman’s “Commander”, which squeaked onto the list last month at no. 20 was listeners’ top pick this month. Have any of you caught a show from their current tour? The San Diego concert was wonderful! I just bought last year’s live album will be adding several songs to the Pie in the next few days. Yes, it’s great, too.
Do you know who Kristen Hall is (no. 3 this month)? She was the third songwriter in the country trio Sugarland before they became a duo. Wikipedia says she started her music career as a roadie for the Indigo Girls. I like her solo work. I hope she puts out another album soon.
San Diego artists are represented by Lindsey Yung at no. 5, Calman Hart (no. 11) and Gregory Page at no. 13.
Thanks for voting and listening to Acoustic Pie!
