'At the end of that long white line ...'

Any Waylon fans out there?

Waylon Jennings himself is no longer among us, but his ghost certainly haunts the sound of one Sturgill Simpson, a Kentucky boy who takes the country sound and puts some strange twists to it. The song highlighted below comes from an album titled "Metamodern Sounds in Country Music," which gives you some idea of what he's up to from time to time.

Enjoy, and I hope everyone has a great Passover and Easter. And for those two young ladies traveling that long white line at the moment cross country, come on home girls. Dad will have the barbecue ready by the time you get here.
