David Williams' take on Wyoming.

I don't like to toot my own horn (okay, much), but I can't quite stop watching this video. Okay, so I shot it myself a few weeks back and, yeah, I've praised local singer David Williams before, but honestly. I am being for real here, like really really real. I like the beautiful things when it comes to music, the kind of stuff that rests inside my ears and makes itself at home there. He's got that something in this song, which is a bit of a 70s country stretch for him, but he out and out owns it. Watching this, you know he knows that, too. I knew it when I sat a few feet from him with my camera and it resounds even more so now. If I could loop the thing, I would ... but I don't mind pushing PLAY over 'n over, either. Do you dig it?

This makes me excited to hear what his solo album is gonna sound like, the still untitled one that comes out in July sometime. I just hope it's full of the slow twangy burners like this one.

If I live to be 100 and you 101, would you please make the soundtrack of my life to play at my wake?

That's how much your taste in music moves me.

Sure thing. It'd help if I knew who you were, so I'd know when you died, but y'know ...
