"The Capital Centre became the USAir Arena and then US Airways Arena. It was demolished in 2002 a few years after its main tenants (NBA Washington Bullets (now Wizards) and NHL Washington Capitals) left for a new arena in downtown…"
"Well, by all means, let's dissect what is and what isn't Americana! That's always fun!
Just kidding. For me in my simple role as music fan, the term Americana is useful only in that if someone is described as an Americana …"
"I think you could say the same about Alejandro Escovedo's last three albums. I think it's terribly surprising if albums by Chuck and Al get passed over by the AMA, because I think they're roots rock and roll…"
"I think the Shovels and Rope and John Fullbright albums are solid nominations. I think the other three are very good, too, but I might replace them with three from this list:
Ray Wylie Hubbard - Grifter's Hymnal

I saw Bruce…"
"@Brendan: I agree with you on the Emmylou/Rodney album and would say the same applies to the Buddy and Jim album. They're both excellent albums, but I think of them as the country/roots music equivalent of comfort…"
"Ray Wylie's a little more swampy, greasy blues rock than honky tonk these days. His latest (The Grifter's Hymnal) is one of my favorites by him and was my favorite album year. And it's rocking. The song in the video…"
"Hey, I remember that Stampeders song. The 45 was in our house (can't remember if it was mine or not) and for some reason, I remember that it had the grey Bell Records label on it. Best I can figure is that I…"
