Here's a playlist I came up with that summarizes music from the store and music from my life. I titled it
"Music we loved in 2010". My family and close friends have received versions of this in the past. aka, the Charlton's Christmas present.
1. Avett Brothers: I and Love and You
I bought this album a year ago at a Starbucks in Eugene. A friend and music lover shared the name of the band with me and I'd been meaning to buy it. I love buying my music when I'm on a road trip. What a great time to put it in and really listen.
2. Brandi Carlile: That year.
The first time I left Cowgirl Cash with an employee and took a vacation was mid-March 2010. Kathlyne who still runs the store beautifully when I'm gone called. "Do you know who Brandi Carlile is" she asked? I'm ashamed to say my answer was "no". "Well she's playing at the Tower tonight, and she and her band were just shopping in here for over an hour. They bought all kinds of stuff!" I immediately went out, bought her music, and have been a crazy fan ever sense.
3. Band of Horses: Cease to Begin
I checked out this Band because of their name and the fact they were coming to Bend. What a fun (cold) show!
4. Jerry Jeff Walker: LA Freeway
A classic, timeless, feel good artist. Even Brooks and Dunn sings about him.
5. Ray LaMontagne: Repo Man
I learned to love Ray LaMontagne from the same friend who turned me on to Eli Halpin art. To see him live is an unbelievable treat.
6. Zac Brown: Jolene
I love the looks and attitude of this new guy on the Country scene. Jolene is a Ray LaMontagne song.
7. Taylor Swift: Enchanted.
