Jeffrey Foucault and Mark Erelli – Tom Merritt

Lately a fascination for all things cowboy has consumed me. Call it the 25 year curse, if you will. That being time spent in Arizona. Add to that another 8 years or so in Houston, Texas and you might understand how a certain amount of Southwestern culture might stick to a fellow.

Country music always rubbed me the wrong way. At least, as promoted on the air ways these last 50 years or so. Folk music and even blue grass holds a larger appeal because it just is not so pretentious. I call it down home music.

The cut here, from the 2010 album entitled: Seven Curses was written by Richard Buckner and Edgar Lee Masters and sung here quite well by Jeffrey Foucault, a folk singer from Wisconsin.
