As you have probably guessed by now, one of my favorite sounds is jangly guitars. But a close second is a syncopated drum beat and this song from Texan singer - songwriter Tift Merritt has it in spades. AllMusic.com in their review of her January 2017 album Stitch of the World, says her voice is like a combination of Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris, and I’d say that pretty much covers it. It also wonders why she isn’t a star, so I guess I need to go back and listen to some of her earlier albums, as this is her third.
Here’s Dusty Old Man :
Here's a nice live, in-studio version of the song:
