    That’s a very powerful performance from Tammy, but I think my favourite this week is the Rodney Crowell song. Thanks for posting, as always.

    That’s one of my very favorite Tammy songs.

    This is one of the most solid lists yet. But I think I am with Occasional Hope with the Rodney Crowell song being my favorite – the Diamonds and Dirt CD is still one I play regularly.

      I liked Diamonds & Dirt a lot as well. It’s a pity he was never able to recapture the commercial success he found with that album.

      It’s also worth noting that Crowell wrote the #1 song from 1999, “Please Remember Me”.
