1. Title: The Money Goes Artist: The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band Album (year): Between The Ditches (2012) Submitted By: hoosier buddy Comments: I saw this band at the 8×10 in Baltimore. It was a transformative experience, standing in the middle of a crowd of screaming, stomping, whiskey-fueled, wild-eyed music fans. The Reverend, who hails from Brown County, IN, could teach Jack White a few things about playing guitar…and about performing. I’m completely serious. Catch ‘em if you can.

Instrumental theme for this month’s Feel Bad For You.

Title: For Stormy Artist: Chelsea Crowell Album: Crystal City Year: 2011 Submitted By: Mando_lines Comments: For Stormy is an instrumental track off of Chelsea Crowell’s upcoming record, Crystal City. The song originally had lyrics, but Ms. Crowell made the decision to jettison the lyrics and had her producer, Loney Hutchins, play lap steel in place of her vocal track. A Tennessee thunder storm (and tornado siren) are in the background, if you listen closely. Conveniently, the siren was in the same key as the song.

Title: Red on the Head Artist: Jonny Corndawg Album: Down On The Bikini Line (2011) Submitted By: toomuchcountry Comments: As the calendar turns to September, what comes to mind? State fairs.
