First visit to Music Savvy Mom? Awesome! Go HERE quick to get caught up.
It’s our last night in Texas.
My Sister in Law Megan just took us out for a ginormous steak dinner, during which we started on the Margaritas. We’re now home, Liam is tucked in bed, and we are continuing with the Margaritas.
(For what it’s worth, Megan makes REALLY good Margaritas. Yummo.) Which brings us to the “Ri’s Family Margarita Mix.”
We’ve had a great time listening to this mostly Texas Alt/Outlaw Country Mix. (We threw Prince in there as a nod to Minnesota, home of the Pater Familias – my Father in Law.)
We’ll miss the Lone Star State and Big D, but will be glad to get home and back to the swing of things. Miss y’all. Now, crack open the tequila and cointreau, slice some limes and join us for a Family Shuffle.
And of course, if you love it, buy it – we want no starving musicians on our collective conscience.
Okay, not Texan, nor country. Kirsty MacColl, John Prine and my sister in law Megan all share a birthday. And they all kick ass. So, there you go. Megan wanted Kirsty’s “A New England” but the ratbastids at playlist.com didn’t have it. Sabotage, I say.
Megan says “Best Pop Song EVER”. I’m SO not arguing with her…because I want another Margarita. (Well, and because I like it, too. Not saying “Best”, but that’s just because I hold my cards close to the vest.)
Megan says this one isn’t safe to listen to at work. She saw James with her drunk friend Erin, who laughed inappropriately at sad songs and thought he was hot. (Megan says he’s talented, but needs to shower more than once a month…)
What’s not to like about this song – it’s happy! And Radney is playing on Sept 4 at Love and War in Texas, which is where we just ate dinner. And hubs says that unlike James McMurtry, Radney looks like he bathes and takes care of himself. (Which produced many more chuckles and guffaws. We’ve now switched to beer, btw…)
