My Christmas present to you...




...is a hand-picked mix CD. What could be better? Sick of the Christmas song complilations and end of year lists at all the other music blogs? Well, this one shuns all that and is country all the way! 20 modern country (and country-influenced/-tinged) songs that you can download and burn to a CD.

I'm still very much learning here, and have spent two days (!) figuring out how to do streamings (so that you can preview it in Windows Media Player, should you want to, before downloading to your hard drive), convert file types, and host mp3s. I am yet to learn how to make a 'play' button here in the blog, or how to host mp3s myself (i.e. not using a third party programme), but I'm getting there. Any tips from those in the know would be great...and if there are any problems with the stuff below, please let me know, because it will also help me to learn (and of course to rectify it)!
Other than that, just enjoy y'all...Happy Holidays!

thanks for the stacey earle track. When steve earle's LP guitar town came out, he performed at a local club... which had about a dozen people in the audience. (really). After steve;s show was done, his sister got on the stage and did a patsy cline song and a hank williams song. glad to see that she continued

Hi Silent 3...I'm impressed with your comment-making, I must say! Again something I, gulp, didn't know...that she was Steve Earle's sister. Talented family!
