Top 20 Songs on Acoustic Pie Radio, August 2009

August 31, 2009

What an interesting collection of songs you’ve voted into the Top 20 this month!  Not a single radio-based celebrity with the exception of John Denver at no. 6, a much underrated songwriter if I do say so myself.   A couple of brand new Acoustic Pie artists made the list, both great:  Rachel Garlin at no. 4 and Putnam Smith at no. 5.  And a bunch of San Diego artists are here including two songs from one of my local favorites Nathan Welden at no. 8 & 14.   The other wonderful San Diego songwriters on the list are Berkley Hart (no. 9) and John McGaraghan (no. 16).

Thanks for voting and thanks for listening to the Pie!

Top 20 Songs on Acoustic Pie Radio, July 2009

August 1, 2009

Congratulations to San Diego local Josh Damigo for taking the #1 spot this month!  That is a very sweet song, too.   Josh is the only San Diego artist to be voted into the Top 20 for July.  And as long as I’m addressing San Diego issues, I’ll just mention that Cheryl Wheeler (no. 7) is coming to town on Sept. 10 and is the Acoustic Pie Pick of the Month.  What a voice, what a writer, what a performer ~ I think you all should join me!

“Crazy in Love” (no. 8) is a favorite romantic country-flavored ballad of mine but the whole album is wonderful.  The songwriting is great, Abbie is a fantastic dobro player, and the duet harmonies are lovely.  Highly recommended!

Thanks for voting and thanks for listening to Acoustic Pie, everybody!
