I was never crazy about that Jackson Browne song that was so popular when I was a kid “Doctor My Eyes”. And I remember hearing “The Pretender” in high school but it never struck a chord with me. But the Jackson Browne album coming in at no. 1 this month, the two volume 2008 live album Solo Acoustic, is a gem. I’ve played five of the songs on the Pie so far this year and I’m happy to see that you all are enjoying them, too.
The no. 4 song is from Lori McKenna’s new album “Lorraine” ~ also a winner! One of Lori’s earlier songs also made the list this month at no. 12.
San Diego local luminaries Cathryn Beeks and Carlos Olmeda were voted in at no. 13 and 19. Carlos’s “A Devil Like Me” is an all-time favorite song of mine. You’ll find it on CD Baby here.
Thanks, everyone, for voting and for listening!
