Ben Nichols, if you're reading this, know that you'll have a fan base in any town I call home. And it adds something special that Katie's always there to scream for you to take your shirt off. Hopefully, you'll take her seriously someday....

I went to see Nichols and his band, Lucero, at the Bowery Ballroom this week. Nichols still had the Arkansas flag waving on his arm, and he still holds a handful of my heartstrings. I've seen them in four cities now, which I think is my record for any band, and they just have such a good time singing about drinking and pining while they tear their strings apart. Their sound is sort of Bruce Springsteen meets Bob Dylan.

Currently listening:
I Drove All Night
By Roy Orbison
Release date: By 01 July, 1991
