September 3 — COPPER CANTEEN, James McMurtry (2015)

imageFor about six years I lived on 12 acres of wooded property, secluded and tucked away from the world north of Coweta, Oklahoma. While working outside — moving wood, cleaning the garage, chopping weeds — I listened to music on my iPod, most often stories of blue-collar people told by the likes of Chris Knight and Sam Baker. Today I spent three hours working outside, and it only seemed right to be serenaded by James McMurtry.
