    How the heck can I compete with a man who has time to list to this many?!

  2. Mike Anderson says:

    Nice Jared, I have a lot of these and I’ll definitely get those further up the list that I don’t have. I don’t want to cause any trouble, especially since it’s a Country album, but Jamey Johnson’s The Guitar Song is well worth the time…

    • Thanks Mike.
      I tried Jamey Johnson but could only get halfway through disc one. Something about country just doesn’t mesh with me … But folk I can handle and oftentimes enjoy
