Episode 217 – July 11, 2019

The show opens with Leon Russell taking us on a Tennessee Hayride and the theme of the state whose “Agriculture and Commerce” motto is just plain boring, if not misleading. We all know there’s a lot of musical talent in Tennessee….in fact, people come to Nashville just for the music. We’ve got George Jones, Rodney Crowell, The Secret Sisters and more in our Tennessee tribute today plus new tracks from Jontavious Willis, Eilen Jewell, Charlie Parr, and others in the show today. July is in its full splendor here on Blue Moon Americana on Sonoma County Community radio.
