Thursday Throwback Tunes - Jason Boland and The Stragglers - Pearl Snaps

I thought I'd let you in on what I was listening to today on my way to work. I listen to music on my way to work. No talk radio, no sports talk, no news radio, no financial get outta debt radio.....no talking please! I want tunes while I'm driving! The best tunes come from my CD collection or The Range. Today's selection: Pearl Snaps by Jason Boland and The Stragglers. The first time I saw Jason Boland and the Stragglers was at Bill's Records and Tapes in Dallas, Texas back in 2000. There were maybe 60 people there. Cross Canadian Ragweed was there in the audience and no one even knew who they were. Everyone knows now. I've been a fan of both ever since that day. I still think their first album, Pearl Snaps is the best. JB&S still play all over Texas......go see them! I've seen them at least a dozen times. I think my favorite JB&S show was in Austin at Stubb's BBQ back in 2002. They played inside after Willie Nelson wrapped his show up outside. It was an awesome show! What a fun night. Going to see Old 97's tomorrow in Addison....can't wait!
