'hey my' featured artist: Todd Snider

well, i am back from vacation now so i thought i would try to squeeze out a quick 'hey my' featured artist feature on the brilliant Todd Snider. he's just put out another great album called The Excitement Plan. it is another solid effort and worth the money. but if you really want to get your moneys worth, you should pick up East Nashville Skyline and Near Truths and Hotel Rooms. These are both two of my favorite albums of all time. Near Truths and Hotel Rooms is one of the best live cds ever, and the reason it is one of the best is because Todd Snider is one of the funniest / most charming performers around. I've listened to the 'The Story of The Ballad of The Devils Backbone Tavern' hundreds of times, and I every time I listen to it I sit there with stupid grin painted on my face the whole time. i've probably included on more mix cd's than any other song (well its actually two songs, but i've put together as one song for your listening pleasures).

and if you want a little more, here is a great video of Todd performing live in Des Moines. it is Todd at his funny / charming best:

but don't confuse him for a comedy act. He is one of the best songwriters around and has written gem after gem. I've read more than a few reviewers tag him as a 'honky tonk Randy Newman'. Randy Newman should be honoured for that comparison.
