Friday Mixtape: Music From the Hospitality State

Mississippi is the birthplace of America's music. Don't believe me? Just look at that road sign. Whether you believe that or not (if you don't, you're wrong), we're still the home of a surprisingly lively and vital music scene despite our meager resources and relatively small population. Here's a playlist of current artists born in Mississippi. There are big time artists (Randy Houser, Rae Sremmurd, Jimmy Buffett), up-and-comers (William Michael Morgan, Dream Cult) and several from the roots realm who we cover fairly regularly (Water Liars, Jason Eady, Cory Brannan, Jimbo Mathus). Hip-hop, Americana, blues, country, indie rock... a little bit of everything. I didn't include Charley Pride or Faith Hill because I'm just not sure their status in regards to putting out new music. Anyway, enjoy! The Spotify playlist appears below the screen captures of the playlist.

Friday Mixtape: Summer Country for Grownups

Tired of mindless summer country songs about tan-line gazing and Natty guzzling? Here's a summer playlist for the adults (in maturity, if not age) that's not short on fun, but won't make you lose any IQ points while listening. Not all of the songs are literally about summer, but they fit the mood. Apologies to the "Margaritaville" haters out there. Skip it.
